2012 Scotiabank NHL Draft Lottery to be held Tuesday

The 2012 Scotiabank NHL® Draft Lottery, a weighted system to determine the order of selection for the first 14 picks of the 2012 NHL Draft, will take place Tuesday, April 10, at 8 p.m., ET.

The League, in cooperation with TSN, will announce the results of the Draft Lottery live during a 30-minute program, produced and televised by TSN in Canada. The special presentation also will air in the U.S. on NBC Sports Network.

The 2012 Scotiabank NHL® Draft Lottery involves clubs that do not qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, or the clubs that have acquired the first-round drafting positions of those non-playoff clubs.

Per NHL rules, the club selected in the Draft Lottery 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 teams with the lowest regular-season point totals, or the clubs that acquired an eligible club’s first-round draft pick. No club will move down more than one position as a result of the Draft Lottery.

Based on team finish, the percentage chance of being selected in the 2012 Scotiabank NHL® Draft Lottery is:

Columbus Blue Jackets - 25.0%

Edmonton Oilers - 18.8%

Montreal Canadiens - 14.2%

New York Islanders - 10.7%

Toronto Maple Leafs - 8.1%

Anaheim Ducks - 6.2%

Minnesota Wild - 4.7%

Carolina Hurricanes - 3.6%

Winnipeg Jets - 2.7%

Tampa Bay Lightning - 2.1%

Washington Capitals (from Colorado) - 1.5%

Buffalo Sabres - 1.1%

Dallas Stars - 0.8%

Calgary Flames - 0.5%

The 2012 NHL Draft will take place at CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh. The first round will take place on Friday, June 22 commencing at 7 p.m. ET and the subsequent rounds (two through seven) will begin at 10 a.m. ET Saturday, June 23.

The following is a summary of the impact on the order of selection since its introduction in 1995:
