Here's an article about the diversity in the 2015 draft. Lightning pick Bokondji Imama was raised in Montreal, but his parents were both born in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Two top draftees mic'd up: Jack Eichel and Noah Hanifin.

My favorite part is when the BB&T Center audio system fails and Hanifin never gets to hear his name being called. Only the best for the new draftees at the home of the kitties.

Then I'm glad I didn't even know it was last weekend. First Lightning draft I've missed since they started LOL

Default Interesting

I have read a number of grades on our draft this year and was a bit surprised at the consistency of the grades. In every one I read from yahoo to SI we got a solid B rating and were given props for having a very good draft and drafting high character guys with really good upsides. So while it was a bit boring, we did very good. I think, can't remember who said this, that we drafted guys who are unafraid to go to the greasy areas and score goals and have the skill to score goals in those areas.
