Monday Links, News, and Notes: It’s Draft Week!

Some draft content, and some offseason talk!

  • The offseason is officially underway for the foreseeable future, and one of the first big signings was former Senator Robin Lehner, who landed a 5 year contract with the Vegas Golden Knights. Lehner’s been through a lot these last few years, and it’s been really nice to see him grow and come into his own in Vegas.
  • I couldn’t exactly write this week’s LNN without mentioning the upcoming draft. There’s been a ton of draft content recently, and I have to give a shoutout to Colin Cudmore for directing me to some of these links and generally being extremely on top of draft coverage. If you haven’t yet, make sure to check out SB Nation’s ongoing mock draft!
  • Subscribers to The Athletic can also read their entire seven-round mock draft here!
  • In more SB Nation content, Lauren Kelly did a top 31 ranking over on Raw Charge.
  • For another top 31 ranking that’s a little more stats focused, click on this thread:/
  • Pierre Dorion recently spoke to TSN’s James Duthie about the Sens’ strategy for the draft, as well as what they’re hoping to do in free agency. Check it out here if you haven’t read it yet!
  • Sens scout Trent Mann also did a media tour talking about the draft. I’d recommend reading SensChirp’s recap.
  • Moving on, Bettman spoke up about that Bubble Confidential that came out not too long ago. The piece featured a lot of pretty damning quotes from NHL players, and Bettman’s response is pretty typical of Bettman. Guess he’s not listening./

This isn’t a big deal, it’s just extremely funny and on brand and I needed to share it with you all.
