2010 NHL Draft Lottery Results

Moments ago the 2010 NHL Draft lottery was conducted in New York City with the top pick being awarded to the Edmonton Oilers, representing a franchise first.

Designed to guard against gaming regular season results to improve draft position, the weighted lottery system implemented prior to the 1995 Draft offers weaker teams a greater chance of a higher pick while allowing a team to advance up to four spots and fall only one.

Though all non-playoff teams participate, only the league's five worst are eligible for the first pick with the last place club enjoying a 48.2% likelihood of the loot. For the 3rd straight year, 4th time in 5, and 8th of the last 15 lotteries, the team with the greatest percentage chance of collecting the top pick did just that. In fact, for the second consecutive year no team advanced or receded in the draw.

1. EDM : 25.0%
2. BOS: 18.8% (from Toronto)
3. FLA: 14.2%
4. CLB: 10.7%
5. NYI: 8.1%
6. TBL: 6.2%
7. CAR: 4.7%
8. ATL: 3.6%
9. MIN: 2.7%
10. NYR: 2.1%
11. DAL: 1.5%
12. ANA: 1.1%
13. PHO: 0.8% (from Calgary)
14. STL: 0.5%

Remaining slots are set after the playoffs with the Stanley Cup winner and runner-up picking 30th and 29th respectively, and conference finalists, division winners, and wildcards teams positioned according to the relative strength of their regular season record among their subgroup.
