NEW YORK/TORONTO – The 2013 Scotiabank NHL Draft Lottery™, a weighted system to determine the order of selection for the first 14 picks of the 2013 NHL Draft™, will take place Monday, April 29, at 8:00 p.m. ET.
The League, in cooperation with TSN, will announce the results of the Draft Lottery live during a 30-minute program produced and televised by TSN in Canada. The special presentation also will air in the U.S. on NBC Sports Network and will re-air on NHL Network™ U.S. at 9:00 p.m. ET.
NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly will be in TSN's studio in Toronto to reveal the order of selection for the top picks in the 2013 NHL Draft. The 2013 Scotiabank NHL Draft Lottery will be the first in NHL history in which all 14 clubs not qualifying for the Stanley Cup® Playoffs -- or the clubs that have acquired the first-round drafting positions of those non-playoff teams -- will have a chance at winning the right to the first overall selection.
The odds of winning the lottery are unchanged from previous years and determined by the teams' regular-season point totals. The lottery-winning team will draft first overall, with the remaining 13 teams slotted in reverse order of their regular-season point totals. In previous years, the winning team could move up no more than four slots in the draft order.
Scotiabank has a long tradition of supporting minor league hockey through the Scotiabank Community Hockey Sponsorship Program, which reaches more than 4,500 minor teams and leagues across Canada. Through its sponsorship of the 2013 Scotiabank NHL Draft Lottery™, Scotiabank continues to demonstrate its commitment to hockey families as players transition to the professional level.
Earlier today, the National Hockey League's Central Scouting Bureau released the top ranked players for the 2013 NHL Draft. Defenseman Seth Jones of the Western Hockey League's Portland Winterhawks and Aleksander Barkov of Finland's Tappara have been named the top 2013 draft-eligible skaters from North America and Europe, respectively. Full rankings and past draft selections can be found at www.nhl.com/draft.
The 2013 NHL Draft will be held Sunday, June 30, with all seven rounds being conducted on the same day for the first time since 2006. As previously announced, the New Jersey Devils and Prudential Center will host the event.

Team 1  25.0%
Team 2  18.8%
Team 3  14.2%
Team 4  10.7%

Moriarty said...

Let us hope...

Congrats Dan for crawling outta last with 3 days left...I hope this remains.

Doug can you hold off Brian for the Predator? Can I old you off for the Omnivore?

And who finishes 3rd-6th! Whoa - ever close!

Be that as it may, if you guys are free on that weekend, we can do out ED Draft Lottery (brought to you by the Crown Royal Twist of Fate Bag and its chips) and i'll come into town...

Sadly, The Scourge has Cam's 1st prd pick, then Dan is second. Question: Does Drouin go first in our PRD draft or is the Homerun pick Connor McDermid (draft-eligible not 2013, not 2014 but 2015!)
