The 2013 NHL Entry Draft takes place on Sunday, June 30 in Newark, New Jersey. But before the draft takes place, the NHL needs to determine the order in which each team will pick.
With the Draft Lottery, all 14 non-playoff teams have an opportunity to win the draw. A win now means that you can move up from any position into the coveted first-overall position.
The Oilers have a 4.7% chance of winning the draft lottery outright and gaining the first overall pick. If any team ranked eighth through 14th wins the lottery, the Oilers fall one spot to draft eighth. Otherwise, they will draft seventh.
The Draft Lottery Drawing for the 2013 NHL Entry Draft will be held Monday, April 29 at 6:00 p.m. MDT. Can't wait until then? We've created a simulator with all the actual odds built in so you can test out and see how the Oilers might do.
