The Edmonton Oilers won the NHL’s draft lottery last night. They went in with a 48.5% chance of winning the first overall pick and they indeed did. New Jersey was the “winner” of the lottery jumping up four spots to 4th overall as Ottawa slid to 6th overall.
With the top pick the Oilers are expected to draft Adam Larsson D, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins C, or Gabriel Landeskog LW. My vote is for Landeskog and last night during an interview Taylor Hall also said he hopes they choose Gabriel. He’s a fierce competitor with all the tools, the problem is the Oilers are loaded at wing, kind of, and could really use a centre. June 24th is the draft in Minnesota.
