For just the second time in NHL Draft Lottery history, the number 8 seed has won the lottery to move up 4 spots in the NHL Entry Draft. The Edmonton Oilers, the 30th place team, retains the number 1 overall pick. It is the 4th time in 5 years that the 30th place team has retained the number 1 selection.
So with the draft lottery complete, the first 14 picks in the draft have been determined. The remaining 16 will be determined with playoff finish. So here are the top 14:
4. New Jersey (won lottery)
5. NY Islanders
9. Boston (via Toronto)
11. Colorado (via St Louis)
We will continue to add/update the list as teams are eliminated from the playoffs.
