April 18, 2015

The Edmonton Oilers won the NHL Draft Lottery, earning the top selection in the First Round of the 2015 NHL Draft, who many expect will be talented prospect Connor McDavid.

This will be the fourth time the Oilers have selected first overall, after drafting Taylor Hall (2010), Ryan Nugent-Hopkins (2011), and Nail Yakupov (2012) in consecutive years.

The San Jose Sharks and Los Angeles Kings, two teams expected to advance to the playoffs this season, will pick ninth and thirteenth, respectively.

The order of selection for the top 14 selections in the First Round of the 2015 NHL Draft is as follows:

    1.    Edmonton Oilers
    2.    Buffalo Sabres
    3.    Arizona Coyotes
    4.    Toronto Maple Leafs
    5.    Carolina Hurricanes
    6.    New Jersey Devils
    7.    Philadelphia Flyers
    8.    Columbus Blue Jackets
    9.    San Jose Sharks
    10.    Colorado Avalanche
    11.    Florida Panthers
    12.    Dallas Stars
    13.    Los Angeles Kings
    14.    Boston Bruins

The remaining positions will be determined by the results of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
