This is your hub for today's PWHL draft. We'll track the main draft here while we work on covering the top Toronto picks.
How to Watch
The draft is livestreamed from Toronto and is on so many platforms, one is bound to suit you, and you can find the list here:
For non-Canadian residents, look for the CBC Youtube stream as a sure thing, but avoid the Canadian website streams from CBC or TSN/SN.
The first few rounds will have commentary – and will likely fill the afternoon. After that it will speed up, and likely get dropped on the actual TV channels.
The draft is set to begin at 1 p.m., and since this is all new, we can't guess how long it will take.

which is really cool, but doesn't break out team lists for you like our low-tech version. You can follow the main draft order on the draft tab and the teams on the team tabs:
