The 2013 Scotiabank NHL Draft Lottery™, a weighted system to determine the order of selection for the first 14 picks of the 2013 NHL Draft™, will take place Monday, April 29, at 8:00 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 and will re-air on NHL Network™ U.S. at 9:00 p.m. ET.
NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly will be in TSN's studio in Toronto to reveal the order of selection for the top picks in the 2013 NHL Draft. The 2013 Scotiabank NHL Draft Lottery will be the first in NHL history in which all 14 clubs not qualifying for the Stanley Cup® Playoffs -- or the clubs that have acquired the first-round drafting positions of those non-playoff teams -- will have a chance at winning the right to the first overall selection.
