The picks are in! Well, the order of the picks, at least. With the NHL Draft Lottery just wrapping up this evening, the suspense is over, and we finally have our order for the top-15.
The highlights include the Buffalo Sabres picking first overall, and the Seattle Kraken jumping up one spot to second overall. The Flyers, as expected, are set to pick 13th overall. There are still going to be some exciting players on the board at that point, but with the moves that the Flyers may be looking to make this offseason, whether they actually end up making that pick remains to be seen.
The complete draft order is as follows:
1. Buffalo Sabres
2. Seattle Kraken
10. Ottawa Senators
13. Philadelphia Flyers
14. Dallas Stars
15. New York Rangers
The draft kicks off on July 23, and our draft content will kick off, well, soon! We’re deep into draft season, gang. We’ll see you soon for more!
