NHL DRAFT DRAWING SET FOR THURSDAY
Islanders currently in 7th spot

NHL OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: The National Hockey League Draft Drawing, a weighted lottery system to determine the order of selection for the first 14 picks of the 2006 Entry Draft, will take place Thursday, April 20, at 12 p.m., ET, at the NHL's New York office.

The Draft Drawing will involve clubs that did not qualify for this season's Stanley Cup Playoffs.  The Draft Drawing result does not affect the draft order for the remainder of the first round and rounds two through seven.

The club selected in the Draft Drawing may not move up more than four positions in the draft order.  Thus the only clubs with the opportunity to receive the first overall selection are the five clubs with the lowest regular-season point totals.  No club can move down more than one position as a result of the Draft Drawing.

Under the weighted lottery system, the club with the fewest regular-season points, the St. Louis Blues, will have the greatest chance (25%) of winning the Draft Drawing and will pick no lower than second at the 2006 Entry Draft.

Fourteen balls, numbered 1-14, will be placed in a lottery machine and four will be expelled, forming a series of numbers.  There are 1,001 numerical combinations possible, and one combination has been eliminated to make the odds equitable.  A probability chart divides the possible combinations among the 14 participating clubs.

The four-digit series that results from the expulsion of the balls will be compared to the probability chart to determine the team to which that combination has been assigned.  If the eliminated series is drawn, a 0.1% probability, the drawing will be re-held immediately.

After the club selected moves up, the balance of the first 14 draft selections are adjusted by one, with the appropriate clubs moving down one slot to accommodate the winner, if necessary.

The current percentage chance of being selected in the Draft Drawing is as follows, based on inverse order of finish among non-playoff clubs:

St. Louis 25.0%
Pittsburgh 18.8%
Chicago 14.2%
Washington 10.7%
Boston 8.1%
Columbus  6.2%
ISLANDERS 4.7%
Phoenix 3.6%
Minnesota 2.7%
Florida 2.1%
Los Angeles 1.5%
Atlanta 1.1%
Toronto 0.8%
Vancouver 0.5%

The 2006 NHL Entry Draft will take place at General Motors Place in Vancouver on Saturday, June 24 at 3 p.m., Pacific time.
