CHICAGO (AP) New Jersey Devils select Halifax Mooseheads center Nico Hischier with the No. 1 pick in NHL draft.
As Nico Hischier is discovering, being taken No. 1 in the NHL Draft has its perks.
The novelty of being the No. 1 draft pick is rapidly wearing off for Nico Hischier, thanks to the three-day developmental camp at the Barnabas Health Hockey House, the Devils' practice facility next to the Prudential Center.
The Devils took Nico Hischier with the top pick in the 2017 NHL draft. The Flyers followed with Nolan Patrick and the Stars rounded out the top three by selecting Miro Heiskanen.
