Winnipeg Jets Will Pick 13th in 2017 NHL Draft

In an NHL Draft in which a Winnipegger and Brandon Wheat Kings star could be selected first overall, the Winnipeg Jets won’t get to choose until the 13th selection. Unless, of course they can manufacture a trade and move up.

On Saturday, the Jets fell from the 12th overall pick to the 13th as the National Hockey League Draft Lottery was held live on Sportsnet’s Hockey Night in Canada.

The Jets had a meagre 2.7 per cent chance of landing the first pick and a 76.4 per cent chance of staying put at No. 12. However, despite odds of 14.3 to move down in the draft, the Jets dropped one spot.

The New Jersey Devils had an 8.5 per cent shot at the top pick and got it. The Philadelphia Flyers got the biggest win of the lottery, moving from No. 13 to No. 2 while the Dallas Stars, jumped from No. 8 to No. 3.

The Colorado Avalanche, the last-place team in the NHL this season and the team that had the highest odds to win the lottery, fell from No. 1 to No. 4 while the Vancouver Canucks and expansion Vegas Golden Knights will choose fifth and sixth, respectively.

With the top pick, the Devils are expected to either one of the two top-rated North American skaters — forwards Nolan Patrick (Winnipeg), of the Western Hockey League’s Brandon Wheat Kings, and Swiss star Nico Hischier, of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League’s Halifax Mooseheads.

Patrick has been the No. 1-ranked player all season, although Patrick has also been sidelined by a couple of injuries. He had hernia surgery last summer and then an “upper-body injury” allowed him to play only 35 regular season games this year and no playoff games.
