After months of waiting, the 2021 NHL Draft is officially here.

Over the course of two days, July 23-24, 223 players will find out where they'll get a chance to pursue their professional hockey dreams. Note that there are 224 slots but the Coyotes had to forfeit their first-rounder.

Entering Friday's first round, the Sabres hold the No. 1 overall pick for the second time in four years. As of now, Owen Power is the projected top guy, but Buffalo did take Rasmus Dahlin back in 2018, so they might not want another franchise defenseman. So whether they go for another blueliner, take another position or trade the pick is anyone's guess.

NHL DRAFT: Full results, analysis for every first-round pick

The 2021 edition also sees the Kraken making their first-ever selections. They'll follow the Sabres in the first round. It marks the sixth time in the past 45 years a team will make their first-ever selection in the top two. The last team to do so at No. 2 was the Predators when they took David Legwand.

Here are each club's selections in the 2021 NHL Draft.
