The 2016 NHL Draft order has been announced by the League. Edmonton currently holds nine picks in the upcoming draft.


The Oilers have the fourth-overall selection in the first round. They choose 32nd overall in the second round.

In the third, the Oilers hold their own pick (63rd overall) as well as two via trades. Edmonton has Florida’s 84th-overall selection and the 91st pick from Pittsburgh. They received Florida’s third-round pick in exchange for Teddy Purcell at the 2016 NHL Trade Deadline. The Penguins sent the Oilers their third-round selection in exchange for Justin Schultz.

Edmonton has no selection in the fourth round, after trading it to Anaheim with Martin Gernat in exchange for forward Patrick Maroon.

The Oilers have the 123rd and 139th-overall (from St. Louis) picks in the fifth round. The Blues’ fifth-round pick came to Edmonton in exchange for goaltender Anders Nilsson.

The Oilers close out their draft with the 153rd (sixth round) and 183rd (seventh round) picks.
