Draft Lottery-The Latest,497

Draft Lottery-The Latest,497

The 2018 NHL Draft Lottery is in the books with the Buffalo Sabres winning the first-overall selection and taking Rasmus Dahlin. And they entered the draft lottery on Saturday with the best odds -18.5 percent- to win the first pick. It was a pretty tame lottery at first as everyone fell into the positions they were meant to be in.

The Sabres have picked first overall twice previously taking Pierre Turgeon in 1987 and selecting Gilbert Perreault in '70.

Swedish defenseman Rasmus Dahlin is regarded as the top-rated prospect and is listed first among European skaters in the final NHL Central Scouting Bureau's final rankings. Montreal also shook up the draft order by moving up one spot and will select third. It continued to count down, and when the Montreal Canadiens were meant to be up, the most attractive thing happened, they didn't.

Right wing Andrei Svechnikov of Barrie in the Ontario Hockey League could be chosen No. 2.

The draft is June 22-23 at American Airlines Center in Dallas. "The value of trading at 11 is much less than trading the second overall pick at the draft".

'Avengers 4' Will Probably Be Longer Than 'Infinity War' According to Directors
Yes, half of all living things are dead, due to Thanos having all the Infinity Stones , making him omnipotent. I'd be more willing to bet we see Galactus show up and revive or even help Thanos in his conquest.

Other teams to win the lottery from the top spot were Edmonton (2010-Taylor Hall), the New York Islanders in 2009 (John Tavares), Tampa Bay in 2008 (Steven Stamkos), St. Louis in 2006 (Erik Johnson), Boston in 1997 (Joe Thornton) and Ottawa in 1996 (Chris Phillips). Last week, coach Bill Peters announced his resignation and was then hired by the Calgary Flames on Monday. The 18-year-old was named the best defenseman at the World Juniors in Buffalo earlier this year. And Dahlin also had an assist in two games at the Pyeongchang Olympics in February.

The Canadiens will select third for the second time since drafting Alex Galchenyuk at that position in 2012. They took Jeff Catrer (11th overall) and Mike Richards (24th) in 2003; Ivan Provorov (seventh) and Travis Konecny (24th) in 2015; and Nolan Patrick (second) and Frost previous year.

With just a 7.5 percent chance of winning and less than a one-in-four chance of picking in the top-three, Canucks fans knew their chances weren't great.

The happiest result from the draft lottery?
