It looks like the NHL is preparing to get ready to take a look at its expansion draft.
The league has been holding its own expansion draft in Las Vegas this summer.
The draft was announced this week by NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman and will take place on July 12-14 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
The draft will be broadcast on NBC Sports Network, NHL Network and NHL Network Plus.
“We’re excited to announce the draft, which will take the place of the regular season’s draft,” Bettman said in a statement.
“This is a big milestone for the league, and we look forward to welcoming fans to the draft experience, whether they are fans of the team, fans of one of the teams or the community.”
A draft will allow the league to assess talent, make decisions about the future of the franchise and make sure that it has the resources to succeed in the future.
Bettman has said that the league hopes to start taking calls from potential teams by the end of the year.
In a draft, players can be selected on the first day of the draft.
Each team has a maximum of seven players on its roster.
Teams can also make a minor move to fill an unsigned position on their roster to add a player.
