The Vancouver Canucks are holding a media event at Rogers Arena on Wednesday where they are expected to announce that Vancouver will host the 2019 NHL Entry Draft.

It will be the first time the city has hosted the draft since 2006 when it was held at GM Place. Vancouver also hosted the draft at BC Place in 1990.

The last Canadian NHL city to host the event was Montreal in 2009 as part of the Canadiens' year-long centennial celebration.

This year’s NHL draft will be held in Dallas from June 22-23.
