ISLANDERS TO PICK 7TH IN DRAFT
St. Louis wins drawing, so order remains the same

NHL PRESS RELEASE

The St. Louis Blues won the National Hockey League Draft Drawing today and retained the first overall drafting position for the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, Saturday, June 24 at General Motors Place in Vancouver (6 p.m., ET, TSN, OLN).

The Blues had the greatest chance that one of the numbered sequences assigned to them would be the winning combination, 25.0%, based on inverse order of regular-season finish.  Under the lottery system, only the five teams with the fewest points had the chance to win the first overall selection; no team could move up more than four spots and no team could move backward more than one.

The Blues have never selected first overall in their 39-year history. The club's highest pick was forward Perry Turnbull, selected second overall in 1979.

The order of selection for the first 14 drafting positions in each round of the 2006 Entry Draft is as follows:

 1. St. Louis Blues
 2. Pittsburgh Penguins
 3. Chicago Blackhawks
 4. Washington Capitals
 5. Boston Bruins
 6. Columbus Blue Jackets
 7. ISLANDERS
 8. Phoenix Coyotes
 9. Minnesota Wild
10. Florida Panthers
11. Los Angeles Kings
12. Atlanta Thrashers
13. Toronto Maple Leafs
14. Vancouver Canucks

The remaining drafting positions will be determined at the conclusion of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The Drawing was conducted at the NHL's New York office.
