Coyotes NHL Lottery GameThread

Discuss tonight's NHL lottery in the comments section.


Due to the Phoenix Coyotes missing the playoffs, management and the team's fans get to experience the NHL lottery for the first time in 4 years. The lottery takes place this evening at the TSN studios in Toronto and can be seen in the United States on NBC Sports Network at 5 p.m. MST.

The Coyotes can finish in only three places in the draft order via the lottery. Those spots are positions 1,12, or 13. The most likely spot they will end up in is their current one which is twelfth. The only way they won't finish in twelfth is if they either get the top spot or if one of the two teams below them, Winnipeg or Columbus, wins the lottery and the Desert Dogs are therefore bumped down into the lucky 13 hole.

Below is a list of all the teams involved in their lottery and their odds of winning it according to the NHL.

Florida Panthers 25.0%
Colorado Avalanche 18.8%
Tampa Bay Lightning 14.2%
Nashville Predators 10.7%
Carolina Hurricanes 8.1%
Calgary Flames 6.2%
Edmonton Oilers 4.7%
Buffalo Sabres 3.6%
New Jersey Devils 2.7%
Dallas Stars 2.1%
Philadelphia Flyers 1.5%
Phoenix Coyotes 1.1%
Winnipeg Jets 0.8%
Columbus Blue Jackets 0.5%
