NHL releases odds for 2018 Draft Lottery

The NHL has released the odds for the 2018 Draft Lottery, which will be held on April 28 in Toronto.

The lottery will consist of three draws: one for the first-overall pick, one for the second-overall pick and one for the third. The 15 teams that fail to qualify for the playoffs, or teams that hold first-round picks of non-playoff teams, will take part in the lottery.

Those teams not selected in the lottery will be assigned picks No. 4 through No. 15 in inverse order of regular-season points.

The 2018 NHL Draft will take place on June 22-23 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.
