When a team gets the Kings a first round pick: A story from the NHL’s past | NHL.com
Posted On July 24, 2021
The Kings acquired the #1 pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft and a first-round pick in 2018 to land the New Jersey Devils in the 2018 NHL Entry DRAFT, according to league sources.
The pick has been held up for more than a year and has not been returned to the team.
The Kings also received a second-round selection from the Devils in 2018, according in league sources, but it was never returned.
The Devils, who were in the final round of the draft, were unable to secure a second rounder.
They then selected the Boston Bruins in the first round of next year’s draft, which is expected to be headlined by a top-three pick.
