NEW YORK, N.Y. - The Florida Panthers will find out just how lucky they are on Monday.
Florida has the greatest odds of winning the NHL's Draft lottery, a weighted system to determine the order of selection for the first 14 picks of the league's amateur draft on June 30.
The lottery draw will be held on Monday at 8 p.m. ET, with all 14 NHL teams that missed the playoffs eligible to take the first overall selection.
In previous years, the lottery-winning team could move up no more than four slots in the draft order. This year, the winning draw will draft first overall, with the remaining 13 teams slotted in reverse order of their regular-season point totals.
Edmonton had the first overall pick the past three years.
