In a recent announcement by NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, the location for the upcoming NHL Draft on June 28/29 was confirmed to be at the Sphere in Las Vegas. The NHL Board officially ratified this decision, marking it as the last centralized draft before decentralization.

The NHL Draft will be held June 28/29 at the Sphere in Las Vegas. NHL Board just made it official. This will be the final draft before decentralizing.

However, this announcement has sparked sentiments of discontent, particularly among Boston Bruins fans who feel the decision disrespects their team.
The source of frustration stems from the fact that the Bruins haven't hosted the NHL Draft since 1999. In the intervening years, the Bruins have achieved significant success, clinching the Stanley Cup and reaching the finals multiple times.
Furthermore, their outstanding performance last year resulted in breaking the record for the most wins in a single season. Despite these achievements, the Bruins have continually been bypassed for the opportunity to host the draft.
The significance of the draft extends beyond player selections, serving as a momentous occasion for the host city and its fans. Boston, with its rich hockey history and fervent fan base, may feel overlooked in this decision.
As the league moves towards decentralization after this draft, it remains to be seen when the Bruins will have the chance to showcase their city and celebrate the future stars of the NHL.
