Islanders select Kieffer Bellows. He was one of top goal scorers in NTDP history. Big time shot and big body with good hands.

Winnipeg selects Logan Stanley. A 6 foot 7 defenseman who can skate and handle the puck well for a big man. Will need time to round out.

A two-run single by Bobby Wilson gives the Rangers a 6-0 lead and spells the end of a short night for David Price, who was rocked for 12 hits in 2-1/3 innings. It's his shortest start since May 22, 2015 for Detroit against the Yankees (also 2-1/3), and the most hits he has allowed since May 8, 2015, also for the Tigers vs. Kansas City (13)

Craig Custance ESPN Senior Writer 

Red Wings get Pavel Datsyuk's contract off the books in draft day trade with Coyotes. Arizona gets a defenseman it needs in Jakob Chychrun with Detroit's pick and Red Wings clear tons of cap space. Detroit now a serious player in the Steven Stamkos sweepstakes. May be the favorite if Stamkos doesn't sign with Tampa.

Arizona selects Jakob Chychrun. He's a great two-way defenseman. Not flashy but he can skate move the puck and be a tough minutes defenseman

Strange outing for Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks who walked four batters but only gave up one hit over 5 innings. That hit was a grand slam to Justin Bour of the Marlins. All 4 runs were unearned due to an Addison Russell error. Cubs and Marlins both scored 4 in the opening inning and that's it for the game so far. 4-4 Bot 5

Corey Pronman ESPN Writer 

Minnesota selects Luke Kunin. Was fantastic for a Freshman being a top player for Badgers. He's a well rounded offensive threat.

Calgary Flames get their goalie in sending the No. 35 overall pick and conditional third to the Blues for Brian Elliott. Great deal for Calgary. Asking price cheaper than Ben Bishop and Marc-Andre Fleury and lower cap hit too. Elliott was great at times for Blues in the playoffs.
