Nashville looking out for pick No. 2

The Nashville expansion team has a name and a number. It was reported the NHL’s newest team will be known as the Nashville Predators. The team is also slated to pick second overall for the 1998 NHL entry draft pending the outcome of the lottery. The No. 1 slot will initially go to the last place overall finisher from this season.

I’m really disappointed for Pat. He’s not working right now and I am.
