The Florida Panthers will have an array of options when it comes to the first-overall selection in tonight's NHL Draft.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, the Panthers are considering a number of trade options for the pick, including those from teams picking outside of the top 10 selections.

Many of those offers are believed to be centred around current NHL players.

Dreger adds that the Panthers do not plan on making their decision on whether to trade the top pick on the draft floor, and therefore will likely make a decision prior to the kick-off of the first round.

The Buffalo Sabres and Edmonton Oilers are also both content staying at second and third overall, respectively, according to Dreger.

You can watch the draft live on TSN and TSN GO at 7pm et/4pm pt.
