New York Rangers win Phase 2 of NHL Draft Lottery and own first overall pick
Following the results of Phase 2 of the NHL Draft Lottery on Monday, the Winnipeg Jets will select 10th overall at the 2020 NHL Draft.
Since relocating to Winnipeg in 2011, the Jets have never selected 10th overall. However, further back in Jets history, there is success with Winnipeg picking at number 10.
In 1988, the Jets picked Finnish winger Teemu Selanne at 10th overall. Selanne went on to play 231 games with the Jets, winning the Calder Trophy as the league's rookie of the year in 1992-93. Selanne finished with 147 goals and 306 points in a Jets jersey as part of a NHL career that also saw him win the Rocket Richard Trophy in 1998-99 with the Anaheim Mighty Ducks, the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy in 2005-06 and finally, the Stanley Cup with the Anaheim Ducks in 2007.
A couple of Winnipeg's Central Division opponents have also had success with that pick.
The Minnesota Wild selected defenceman Jonas Brodin 10th overall in 2011, the same NHL Draft that the Jets added Mark Scheifele to the prospect pipeline.
Colorado held the 10th overall pick in both the 2015 and 2016 NHL Drafts, selecting Mikko Rantanen and Tyson Jost respectively.
The 2020 NHL Draft is scheduled for October 9 and 10.
The Draft order (as of Monday's Phase 2 of the Draft Lottery) is as follows:
