Stars To Participate in NHL Draft Drawing Tuesday

by Dallas Stars Staff / Dallas Stars

Frisco, Tex. -- The Dallas Stars will participate in the National Hockey League Draft Drawing on Tuesday, April 13 at 7 p.m. CT -- a weighted system to determine the order of selection for the first 14 picks of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

The League, in cooperation with TSN, will unveil the results of the Draft Drawing live during a 30-minute program, 2010 LG NHL® Draft Lottery -- produced and televised by TSN in Canada. The special presentation will also be simulcast on VERSUS and streamed live on in the U.S.

NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly will be live in TSN’s studio to reveal the order of selection for the top picks in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. The Draft Drawing involves clubs that do not qualify for the Stanley Cup Playoffs, or the clubs that acquired the first-round drafting positions of those non-playoff clubs.

Per NHL rules, the club selected in the Draft Drawing may not move up more than four positions in the draft order. Thus, the only clubs with the opportunity to receive the first overall selection are the five teams with the lowest regular-season point totals, or the clubs that acquired an eligible team’s first-round draft pick. No club will move down more than one position as a result of the Draft Drawing.

Dallas is currently slotted in the 11th spot in the Draft and would move up to the 7th pick, should the Stars win the Draft Drawing.

The percentage chance of a team being selected in the Draft Drawing:

Edmonton 25%
Boston (from TOR) 18.8%
Florida 14.2%
Columbus 10.7%
NY Islanders 8.1%
Tampa Bay 6.2%
Carolina 4.7%
Atlanta 3.6%
Minnesota 2.7%
NY Rangers 2.1%
Dallas 1.5%
Anaheim 1.1%
Phoenix (from CGY) 0.8%
St. Louis 0.5%

The 2010 NHL Entry Draft will take place at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles. The first round will take place on Friday, June 25 commencing at 6 p.m. (CT) and the subsequent rounds (two through seven) will begin at Noon (CT) on Saturday, June 26.
