The 2013 NHL Draft has arrived, and with the fifth overall pick, the Carolina Hurricanes are in a prime spot to land an impact player. There have also been rumors of trading the pick to move down, which should make for an interesting few hours.

CarolinaHurricanes.com is in New Jersey to cover today's seven-round event. Below, we’ll keep a running blog of everything that happens throughout the day. We will be hosting a live chat on Twitter beginning at approximately 2:30 p.m., with the first round slated to get underway at 3 p.m. For those who do not have a Twitter account, a live stream of those tweets and others will be provided on this page.
