Minnesota Wild Season Ends Without Playoffs, but Chance Top Pick

What Jack Hughes playing alongside his brother would look like should Vancouver win the draft lottery

The New York Rangers will pick No. 2, and the Chicago Blackhawks won the No. 3 selection. There was an equivalent runoff between former captains Scott Stevens and Eric Lindros with New Jersey and Philadelphia, but such a matchup hasn't since existed between both teams.

Two years ago, the Avalanche also had the best odds for No. 1 but fell to fourth, ultimately selecting defenseman Cale Makar. "Our franchise, we need more talent". In between those two national championships, Hall helped Canada win a silver medal on home ice at the World Juniors in Saskatoon; Team Canada lost in overtime to the USA, which included the Devils' Kyle Palmieri on its roster, to snap Canada's string of five consecutive gold medals at the event.

Ottawa, which finished 31st in the overall standings, could have sent the team's first pick at last June's draft to Colorado, but decided instead to keep the selection before drafting winger Brady Tkachuk at No. 4.

American center Jack Hughes is projected as the first overall pick.




Teams can only fall three spots, so the Wings are guaranteed to pick at No. 7 or higher when the 2019 NHL Draft kicks off in Vancouver on June 21. New Jersey took Nico Hischier with the top pick in 2017 after jumping to No. 1 with the fifth-best odds in the lottery.

"I like to say I play like Patrick Kane a little bit, but I feel I'm more of a Mat Barzal in how I carve through the neutral zone, lug the puck, and find my teammates". Chicago Blackhawks 4. Colorado Avalanche (from OTT) 5.

Jack Hughes of the U.S. National Team Development Program has been the consensus favorite to go first overall, but Finnish right winger Kaapo Kakko of TPS in Liiga has been gaining ground this season. But this year's selection is thanks in part to the fact that the team had one of their best records in years, significantly reducing their odds to get a top selection. "It'd be great", head coach Jeff Blashill said on Monday. And doing this again, you have to be lucky.

"I skate with (Devils forward) Taylor Hall in the summers, he's been a really good guy to me, he's been really nice", Hughes told NBCSN on Tuesday. This isn't to say Nolan Patrick won't be a good hockey player, but is now off to a slower start than Hischier.
