2013 NHL Draft Lottery Odds
The 2013 NHL Draft Lottery Drawing will be held on Monday, April 29th.
The 2013 NHL Draft will be held on June 30th, at 3:00 PM at the Prudential Center in New Jersey, with all seven rounds taking place on the same day.
For this year's NHL draft, the NHL made a change to the process. Now, all non-playoff teams are eligible to win the draft lottery and select first overall.
In the past, if a team won the lottery, they were only eligible to move up four slots. Meaning, only the teams in the bottom five were able to draft first.
