2018 NHL Mock Draft – Round One

The best thing about doing mock drafts is how confident you are when you write them, and then how wrong you end up being.

We are Family.

A term I sometimes see thrown about on social media is #HockeyFam or #GiantsFam. According to dictionary.com, one of the definitions of family is:

“a group of people who are generally not blood relations but who share common attitudes, interests, or goals and, frequently, live together”
