The first 28 picks of the 2024 Upper Deck NHL Draft have been set with the end of the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

The first 16 selections were determined by the NHL Draft Lottery, which was held May 7. The San Jose Sharks won the lottery and have the No. 1 pick. The Chicago Blackhawks won the No. 2 selection.

The 2024 draft will be held at Sphere in Las Vegas. The first round is June 28 (7 p.m. ET; ESPN, ESPN+, SN, TVAS) and rounds 2-7 are June 29 (11:30 a.m. ET; ESPN+, NHLN, SN, SN1).

The 12 teams that lost in the first two rounds of the playoffs were slotted into picks 17-28. Teams that did not win their division were placed in inverse order of regular-season standings points, followed by the one division winner that lost, the Vancouver Canucks.

The No. 29 pick will go to the team that loses in the conference finals with the fewest regular-season points, and No. 30 will go to the other team that losses in the conference finals. The team that loses the Stanley Cup Final will get pick No. 31, and the Cup winners will receive No. 32.
