How to Watch & Stream the 2022 NHL Draft Lottery


May 10

Building through the draft is essential in the modern NHL, with the draft lottery the path to the coveted first overall pick in the 2022 Draft takes place tonight.

The Montreal Canadiens are one of the most storied franchises in NHL history and after playing in the Stanley Cup Final last year, they’ll now boast the top odds in the draft lottery tonight. It’s not often you see a team go from the top to the bottom, but injuries helped derail the Habs after a Cinderella run in 2021.

Shane Wright of the Kingston Frontenacs is the projected first overall pick, so there’s plenty at stake tonight when the balls are dropped into the lottery machine.

Wright recorded 94 points in 63 games during the 2021 regular season and 66 points during his rookie season in the OHL.
