The New Jersey Devils have a League-high 12 picks in the 2017 NHL Draft presented by adidas at United Center in Chicago.

The first round is June 23 (7 p.m. ET; NBCSN, SN). Rounds 2-7 is June 24 (10 a.m. ET; NHLN, SN).

The Devils have the No. 1 pick, which they won at the NHL Draft Lottery on April 29.

They are likely to choose either Brandon center Nolan Patrick or Halifax center Nico Hischier. Patrick (6-foot-2, 198 pounds) and Hischier (6-1, 178) are No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, in NHL Central Scouting's final ranking of North American skaters.

The Devils also have two picks each in the second, third, fourth, sixth and seventh rounds.

The Detroit Red Wings have 11 picks, including six in the first three rounds. They have the No. 9 pick in the first round, the first time they've picked in the top 10 since 1991.

The Chicago Blackhawks and Carolina Hurricanes each have 10 picks.

The Vegas Golden Knights have seven selections. They got the No. 6 pick in the lottery and have the third pick in each subsequent round.

The Dallas Stars, Arizona Coyotes, and St. Louis Blues each have two picks in the first round.

In addition to their pick at No. 3, the Stars have the No. 29 pick, acquired from the Anaheim Ducks in a trade for forward Patrick Eaves on Feb. 24.

The Coyotes have their pick at No. 7 and also No. 23, one of three draft choices they acquired from the Minnesota Wild in a trade Feb. 26 for center Martin Hanzal, forward Ryan White and a 2017 fourth-round pick.

The Blues have their pick at No. 20 and also No. 27, which they acquired along with forwards Zach Sanford and Brad Malone from the Washington Capitals in a trade for defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk and goalie Pheonix Copley on Feb. 27.

After the lottery set the order of the first 15 picks, the Stanley Cup Playoffs established the remainder of the first round. The Pittsburgh Penguins' 2-0 victory against the Nashville Predators in Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Final meant they will pick No. 31. The Predators will pick 30th.

The draft order for final six rounds is set by reverse order of the regular-season standings.
