NHL Entry Draft Lotto Simulator

  • The NHL has not announced official odds for the 2017 Entry Lotto Draft. We are using our best estimate based on past draft lotto odds.
  • According to the Official NHL Rules of the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft:
    • The Las Vegas franchise will be given the same odds in the 2017 NHL Draft Lottery as the team finishing with the third-fewest points during the 2016-17 regular season.
    • The Las Vegas franchise's First Round selection in the 2017 NHL Draft will be determined in accordance with the 2017 NHL Draft Lottery and, as a result, the Las Vegas franchise will be guaranteed no lower than the sixth overall selection.
    • The Las Vegas franchise then will select third in each subsequent round of the 2017 NHL Draft (subject to trades and other potential player transactions).
