NHL Draft Lottery odds announced

Recommended Posts

NEW YORK - The National Hockey League announced today the odds for the 2018 NHL Draft Lottery, which will be held Saturday, April 28, in Toronto.

The 2018 NHL Draft Lottery will consist of three drawings: the 1st Lottery Draw will determine the club selecting first overall, the 2nd Lottery Draw will determine the club selecting second overall and the 3rd Lottery Draw will determine the club selecting third overall.

The 15 clubs that do not qualify for the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs - or the clubs that have acquired the first-round picks of those non-playoff clubs - will participate in the 2018 NHL Draft Lottery.

 

Non-Playoff Team (Fewest Points to Most), 2018 Odds, 2017 Odds*, 2015 & 2016 Odds

1, 18.5%, 18.0%, 20.0%

2, 13.5%, 12.1%, 13.5%

3, 11.5%, 10.3%, 11.5%

4, 9.5%, 10.3%, 9.5%

5, 8.5%, 8.5%, 8.5%

6, 7.5%, 7.6%, 7.5%

7, 6.5%, 6.7%, 6.5%

8, 6.0%, 5.8%, 6.0%

9, 5.0%, 5.4%, 5.0%

10, 3.5%, 4.5%, 3.5%

11, 3.0%, 3.2%, 3.0%

12, 2.5%, 2.7%, 2.5%

13, 2.0%, 2.2%, 2.0%

14, 1.5%, 1.8%, 1.0%

15, 1.0%, 0.9%

* Expansion Vegas Golden Knights received same odds as team finishing regular season in 28th place

The odds for the remaining teams will increase on a proportionate basis for the 2nd Lottery Draw, based on which club wins the 1st Lottery Draw, and again for the 3rd Lottery Draw, based on which club wins the 2nd Lottery Draw.

The 12 clubs not selected in the 2018 NHL Draft Lottery will be assigned 2018 NHL Draft selections 4 through 15, in inverse order of regular-season points.

More details about the 2018 NHL Draft Lottery will be announced at a later date.

The 2018 NHL Draft will take place at American Airlines Center in Dallas. The first round will be held Friday, June 22. Rounds 2-7 will take place Saturday, June 23.

That's good that the league is helping the Vegas Knights out by essentially all but giving them the #1 Pick.

They really need the help.  Terrible season, and ticket sales must be down as well.

You misunderstand the asterisk part.
Vegas received high odds in 2017, not 2018.
This year they will not have an automatic lottery pick, nor a first rounder as they traded it to Detroit for Tatar.
