On June 22-23 The NHL had its annual Draft, the draft took place at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh PA, The Philadelphia Flyers made a lot of Noise during the draft in making two trades in trading away James van Riemsdyk to Toronto for Luke Schenn also traded goalie Sergei Bobrovsky to Blue Jackets for 3 draft Picks #45 in second round of 2012 draft, pick #117 in fourth round of 2012 draft & fourth round in 2013, and at the same time drafting news players to the franchise.
