Roll call has begun at Staples Center
By Richard Durrett
LOS ANGELES -- About 10 minutes before the NHL Draft goes on the air, they do a roll call to verify all teams are here and in place and to get the name of the person that will announce the pick for their respective organization.
When Anaheim was announced, the crowd booed loudly. They weren't big fans of San Jose, either. And, of course, when the Kings were announced it was a long cheer. It's an enthusiastic crowd.
BTW, Tim Bernhardt, director of amateur scouting, will announce the selections for the Stars.
