Edmonton Oilers Win #1 Overall in Draft Lottery

courtesy: Rogers Sportsnet
Playing with the gift of last year's #1 overall selection in Taylor Hall, the Edmonton Oilers have again had the ping-pong balls fall in their favor. This allows them the next year's pick to help them again gain some ground on the competition and aid their rebuilding program.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins of of the WHL's Red Deer Rebels is considered to be the top draft-eligible North America, but will he be passed by for a European prospect?

The Avalanche and Panthers get the #2 and #3 seeds. You can see the rest of the remaining selections to the right. The remaining seedings for this upcoming draft, hosted by St. Paul, Minnesota, will be determined once the playoffs eliminate more teams.
