The 2019 NHL Draft selection order is taking shape and the Flames' will officially select 26th overall in the first round.

The first 15 spots in the draft were decided on Apr. 9 when the NHL held their annual draft lottery, with the New Jersey Devils taking the top spot. Following the first 15 picks, the selection order is decided by the non-division winning teams eliminated in the first two rounds of the playoffs being seeded in inverse order of their regular season points. After that, the four division winning clubs are seeded in inverse order of their regular season point total.

The team that loses in the Stanley Cup Final will pick 30th overall and the Cup winner will get pick 31.
