Canadiens, Hurricanes move up in NHL Draft Lottery

  • Rasmus Dahlin of Team Sweden during the IIHF

The Edmonton Oilers had a disappointing season and were looking for some luck on their end last night at the draft lottery.

Not getting into the draft lottery for the right to choose first, second or third overall in the draft also puts the Wings out of reach of forward Andrei Svechnikov, brother of Wings forward Evgeny Svechnikov, as well as forward Filip Zadina. Montreal also shook up the draft order by moving up one spot and will select third.

The Buffalo Sabres followed a season filled with losses by finally winning something - the National Hockey League draft lottery - and landing the No. 1 pick for just third time in franchise history.

A big blow to the Senators rebuilding plans as the 2nd lowest regular season team dropped out of the top three picks, eliminating their chances at drafting Erik Karlsson's possible replacement in Rasmus Dahlin.

"It's possible, but you suffer a lot to get that pick, so it would have to be a pretty good offer to move that pick", Bergevin said.

The Hurricanes entered the lottery with a three percent chance of landing the No. 1 pick after they finished 21st in the standings.

Further, it had directed the Bar Council of India (BCI) to prepare a report on the conduct of lawyers in Jammu and Kathua. "Fair trial is the consideration and we are concerned with the interest of victim and accused".

Following last night's drawing, Sabres General Manager Jason Botterill said he's happy for the fans. "The value of trading at 11 is much less than trading the second overall pick at the draft". The 18-year-old Swede's mobility and all-around game have earned him comparisons to Detroit Red Wings legend Nicklas Lidstrom.

The only thing left to do now is wait for the draft on June 22, which feels like a shorter wait than sitting through the first two periods of the Vegas-San Jose game to see the order of the top three teams. And Dahlin also had an assist in two games at the Pyeongchang Olympics in February.

The Hurricanes are in a state of flux under new team owner Tom Dundon. Last week, coach Bill Peters announced his resignation and was then hired by the Calgary Flames on Monday. The pick acquired from the St. Louis Blues was still up in the air with the draft lottery.

The New York Islanders have back-to-back picks at Nos. Picks 16 through 27 will be determined after the second round of the playoffs, then picks 28 through 31 will be assigned to the four teams remaining.
