Cape Breton Screaming Eagles get first pick in QMJHL draft lottery

MONTREAL - The Cape Breton Screaming Eagles will pick first overall in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League draft.

The Screaming Eagles won the draft lottery that was held Thursday and will get first choice at the draft on June 8 in Chicoutimi.

Cape Breton finished last overall this season, one point behind the defending Memorial Cup champion Shawinigan Cataractes.

"We have been in the League for 16 seasons, we have never not made the playoffs (before), so it gives us an extra motivation for next season," said Cape Breton governor Richard Morency.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
