Red Wings get pick No. 6 in draft again; Devils win lottery

What Jack Hughes playing alongside his brother would look like should Vancouver win the draft lottery

The Buffalo Sabres, who had the fifth-highest odds for the top selection, 8.5 percent, will pick seventh. We hope it's a superstar.

The Canucks' run of futility, resulting in them being one of the worst teams in the National Hockey League for the past four seasons, has coincided with the National Hockey League expanding the draft lottery to include a raffle of the top three picks.

What else do you want me to say? The lottery for the draft pick order was held in Toronto and broadcast on NHL Network in the States and on SportsNet in Canada.

In fact, you can look at the fact that the Chicago Blackhawks moved up from 12th to third as proof that the NHL's draft lottery is a crapshoot.

"I said the No. 1 thing we needed was [more] talent, and this is a huge part of getting more talent".

I've never really had anything wrong with my legs before. "We'll find out some more tomorrow". Lester sent out a tweet about his injury earlier Tuesday.

The point is, if you have faith in Judd Brackett and the Canucks' scouting department, as well as Benning's reputation as a super-scout drafting GM, then you likely have faith that the Canucks can find an impact player at tenth overall to join their young core. "It's just a good night all around". To think about the Rangers never having had a top three pick in their franchise, that's incredible. "My phone is in my back pocket buzzing". New Jersey won the lottery - the second time in three years the Devils will have the top pick - and are now expected to take 17-year-old center Jack Hughes.

Kakko is a winger who can play center. The consolation prize for the Rangers is the consensus second-best eligible player, Kaapo Kakko, who recently bested Patrick Laine's Liiga regular-season scoring record.

Following a breakout campaign in which they earned their first playoff berth in six years, the New Jersey Devils dropped 25 points in the standings this season.

The Rangers own the Winnipeg Jets' first-round selection and could add the Tampa Bay Lightning's if Tampa Bay wins the Stanley Cup, and the Dallas Stars' based on Dallas reaching the third round of the playoffs and the playing time of forward Mats Zuccarello. "It's a deep draft".
