Today's a pretty big day for the NHL, as it's the day of the annual Awards show and also the day when the Las Vegas Golden Knights will be revealing their picks.

Unlike last night's jersey event, you'll be able to follow along with tonight's festivities live.

When does it all start?

Tonight at 8 PM Eastern. You can watch the event on NBC Sports Network, Sportsnet in Canada or on the NBC Sports app/website.

NHL Expansion Draft

The official list will be out tonight, but expect the picks and side deals to trickle out via reporters over the course of the day.

As a reminder, Vegas must take one player from each team. They must select a combination of three goalies, nine defensemen and 14 forwards.

NHL Awards

It's not entirely clear whether the awards will happen before, after or during the Vegas team reveal.

Expect it to be awkward, fragmented and confusing, like everything the NHL does.

There should be C-list celebrities, clearly uncomfortable hockey players...what more could you want?

Why would I watch the NHL Awards?

Good question. I don't really know.

Patrice Bergeron is up for the Selke again, and should win. But expect Ryan Kesler to get it this year because people are tired of seeing Bergeron win.

Other than that? I'm not sure. Maybe there's nothing else on.
