What a whacky NHL Draft Lottery night! Not only is it happening during a pandemic, virtually, and ahead of playoffs… we don’t even know who won yet!
The 1st overall pick will be awarded to one of the losers of the play-in round, with each of the 8 losing teams given a 12.5% chance. Even though we don’t have a Draft Lottery winner yet, just about everyone in the hockey world is talking about the ones that fell short – mainly the last-place-by-a-mile Detroit Red Wings and the two-top-picks-in-the-Draft Ottawa Senators.
What a strange Draft Lottery.
