The 2012 NHL Draft is set to get underway on Friday, June 22. As advertised, the Dallas Stars have the No. 13 overall pick, and have been linked to a number of different players in mock drafts recently, including Morgan Rielly, Olli Maatta, Zemgus Girgensons and Brendan Gauce.
Nobody knows who the Stars will take yet, and virtually everything depends on the first 12 picks ahead of the Stars.
Here's what the draft order for the first round of the 2012 NHL Draft looks like, courtesy of NHL.com.
4. N.Y. Islanders
10. Tampa Bay
11. Washington (from Colorado)
17. San Jose
19. Tampa Bay (from Detroit)
21. Buffalo (from Nashville)
25. St. Louis
28. N.Y. Rangers
29. New Jersey
30. Los Angeles (optional to Columbus)
The Devils have opted to keep this year's first round draft pick. New Jersey has to forfeit a first round pick between now and 2014 as a penalty for attempting to circumvent salary cap rules.
