SALT LAKE CITY— The Smith Entertainment Group is making Delta Center the place to be this summer as it prepares to host NBA and NHL draft parties later this month. Both draft parties will be free and open to the public.

The state’s first-ever Utah NHL Draft Party will begin at 4 p.m. MT on Friday, June 28, and last until the end of the first round. The Utah NHL franchise owns the No. 6 overall pick in the first round and 13 picks in the 2024 NHL draft.
