LAST UPDATED: 12:30 p.m.
After making a splash with a blockbuster trade on Friday, the Carolina Hurricanes are ready to make some picks on the second day of the 2012 NHL Draft. Currently, the Canes hold nine picks in the six remaining rounds, including two in the second round and three in the fourth round.
CarolinaHurricanes.com will be bringing you all the action from Pittsburgh. Below, we’ll keep a running blog of everything that happens throughout the day. Because of the rapid-fire nature of these rounds, I can't promise there will be an abundance of real-time updates. But, when time permits, there will be new posts, which will include various news items, tweets, videos from CanesVision, pictures and more.
The best way to keep up with all the action today is to follow @nhl_canes, @MSmithCanes and @MikeSundheim on Twitter. Finally, we invite you to join the discussion at the bottom of this blog in the comments section.
