Not getting into the draft lottery for the right to choose first, second or third overall in the draft also puts the Wings out of reach of forward Andrei Svechnikov, brother of Wings forward Evgeny Svechnikov, as well as forward Filip Zadina.

For the third time in franchise history, the Sabres will have the first overall selection in the draft. They both leaped over the Ottawa Senators (13.5 percent) and Arizona Coyotes (11.5 percent). Obviously, we're moving up and we'll see in a little bit where we pick.

After not picking first overall in 2014 or 2015 after having the best odds, Buffalo avoids disaster and wins the draft lottery, effectively securing future franchise player Rasmus Dahlin.

We have a good relationship and we keep our individual memories ". "We needed that, a bit more experience, mental aggressiveness". The Portuguese manager said he knew that building United back into an European powerhouse would take time .

Dahlin has the chance of becoming just the second Swedish-born player to be taken first after the Quebec Nordiques chose Mats Sundin with the No. 1 pick in 1989. And Bergevin said on Saturday that the position of a given player will be considered in the mandate to pick the best player available. Montreal moved up two spots in the draft order and will pick third. "From what our guys are saying, it's a good draft, but again at three we get a player that's probably going to play sooner than later". Edmonton also moved down one spot from No. 9 to No. 10. The 18-year-old had 40 goals and 72 points in 44 games in his rookie season of major junior hockey.

"We knew with the odds, our highest odds were going to be having the fourth pick, and we think top four is pretty special, and we know that player has a very good chance of playing for us next year, so we're pretty excited about that", Ottawa general manager Pierre Dorion said.

The order of the top three selections will be announced later during the second intermission of Game 2 of the second-round playoff series game between the Vegas Golden Knights and San Jose Sharks.
