  • Rasmus Dahlin skates for Team Sweden at the 2018 World Juniors

The Sabres have picked first overall twice previously taking Pierre Turgeon in 1987 and selecting Gilbert Perreault in 1970. A top three pick for Montreal is an interesting situation to keep an eye on, as they are the first team of the draft that may pick outside the prospect rankings and take a lower ranked defender over the right wing prospect that Carolina doesn't choose.

- The Carolina Hurricanes won the 2018 NHL Draft lottery and will make the first pick in June's draft.

The Sabres overcame their past disappointments the last two times they finished last and settled for the No. 2 pick in both 2014 and 2015.

The Carolina Hurricanes made the biggest jump in the draft order by moving from the 11th spot to 2nd.

The Hurricanes and Canadiens moved ahead of Ottawa and Arizona.




The NHL entry draft takes place on June 22 and 23 in Dallas.

The projected first overall pick in this draft for a long time now is current Frolunda defenseman Rasmus Dahlin. Russian forward Andrei Svechnikov is the top-ranked North American prospect after playing for Barrie of the Ontario Hockey League. The top three spots were announced during the second intermission of the San Jose Sharks-Vegas Golden Knights playoff game.

"I'm nervous", Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin said during TV coverage of the first part of Saturday's NHL Draft Lottery from the CBC building in Toronto. Montreal is also making a move up after having the fourth-best shot at landing the No. 1 selection. Buffalo entered the lottery with the best odds at 18.5 per cent and become the 16th team to win the sweepstakes.

The next step for the prospects will be attending the pre-draft combine in Buffalo from May 27 to June 2.
