DALLAS (AP) — The Dallas Stars will host the 2018 NHL draft at American Airlines Center.
The NHL and the Stars announced Saturday night that the draft will be Friday-Saturday, June 22-23. The first round will be June 22 and the final six rounds June 23.
Dallas will host the draft for the first time. The franchise is celebrating its 25th season in Texas after leaving Minnesota.
The NHL Draft was held at the United Center in Chicago this past year and the First Niagara Center in Buffalo in 2016. Detroit last hosted the NHL Draft in 1987, which was the first time the draft was held in the U.S.
