Anyone feel a draft?

The National Hockey League recently held its annual Entry Draft in Philadelphia, where days of festivities marking the honor preceded the actual event.

As part of the celebration, youngsters from the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation helped plant 30 trees — one to represent each NHL team — outside the Wells Fargo Center complex. Gary Bettman, commissioner of the NHL, was among the officials in attendance.

For the Flyers, the big news was the drafting of Travis Sanheim.
