NHL Draft Lottery Simulator

The NHL Draft Lottery takes place on Tuesday night with 14 teams waiting patiently to find out where they will pick in June’s NHL Entry Draft. And though it’s nearly impossible to successfully predict every pick in the lottery, the Edmonton Oilers have done their best to create a working simulator that will create the draft order based on a special, unknown, algorithm that likely uses the lottery percentages as a major factor.

You can simulate the lottery for yourself on the Oilers website, or look below for the FanSided simulation which took in over 100 different attempts on the simulator and averaged the results out to form the final drawing.

1. Buffalo Sabres
2. Florida Panthers
