NHL Draft - Day 2 - live blog - 06-23-12

Written by Seth Rorabaugh on .

Good morning. We apologize for not having Empty Netter Assists up this morning. The NHL gave us approximately 45 minutes to sleep between Rounds 1 and 2 so we had to abandon them. We'll have a thorough round up of this weekend's news on Sunday.

More after the jump.

12:40 p.m. The Kings make the final selection, defenseman Nick Ebert of Windsor (OHL).
