2014 NHL Draft Lottery Odds
The 2014 NHL Draft Lottery Drawing will be held on Tuesday, April 15th.
The draft will be held on June 27th and 28th from the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
It was introduced last year that all non-playoff teams are eligible to win the draft lottery and select first overall.
The New Jersey Devils are taking part in the draft lottery, but they will not keep the pick as they have lost their lottery pick (if they miss the playoffs) and have been given the 30th overall pick a part of the Ilya Kovalchuk cap circumvention penalty. If the Devils win the lottery, there will be a full redraw.
