NHL Draft Lottery odds will remain the same for coming year

The NHL Draft Lottery will not be changing this year.

According to TSN Hockey analyst Bob McKenzie, the league discussed making odds for the 14 non-playoff teams more balanced, but it won't happen this year.

The only difference in this year's draft lottery will remain that the team that wins the lottery will be awarded the first overall pick. In previous years, winning the lottery only allowed a team to move up a maximum of four places in the draft order.

The NHL is increasing the number of teams eligible to make the No. 1 pick in its draft to 14, and announced that all seven rounds of the draft at the Prudential Center will take place June 30. The league announced Monday that all 14 teams that miss the playoffs, or the teams that hold the rights to the top 14 picks, will be eligible for the No. 1 draft pick.

Full Story.
