Spoiler alert: Pittsburgh lands the NHL draft Add to ...

The NHL sent out a press release Wednesday morning saying it has a major announcement scheduled for Thursday.



Whoops – the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review spilled the beans. Well, hockey writer Rob Rossi spilled the beans last summer actually when he wrote the NHL picked the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Consol Energy Center as the hosts of the 2012 entry draft. They beat out the Tampa Bay Lightning, which, considering the draft is held June 22-23, is probably a good thing.



Rossi has the details.
