THIS DATE IN HISTORY: June 27

2014: Aaron Ekblad becomes the first defenseman in eight years to be selected No. 1 in the NHL Draft when he's taken by the Florida Panthers with the first pick.

The Panthers, winners of the NHL Draft Lottery, open the selection process at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia by picking Ekblad, of the Barrie Colts in the Ontario Hockey League. He's the first defenseman to go No. 1 since Erik Johnson is taken with the first pick by the St. Louis Blues in 2006. Ekblad makes the Panthers roster as an 18-year-old, finishes with 12 goals and 39 points, and wins the Calder Trophy in 2015 as the League's top rookie.
