Tonight, the Wild will find out where it will pick in the NHL Entry Draft this June. Based on the current lottery system, the Wild will could land the fifth, ninth or 10th overall pick.

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 selections are the five teams with the lowest regular-season point totals. No club can move down more than one position as a result of the Draft Drawing.

If there are no changes, the Wild would pick ninth overall, but there is a 2.7% chance of the team moving up to number five. The lowest it can pick would be 10th.
