Montreal Canadiens will be selecting third overall at the 2018 NHL Draft

Montreal Canadiens will be selecting third overall at the 2018 NHL Draft

The Montreal Canadiens were revealed to be picking third at the 2018 NHL Draft.

NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson, Francesco Aquilini, Vancouver Canucks Chairman and Governor and Trevor Linden, Vancouver Canucks President Hockey Operations hold a 2019 Vancouver Canucks 2019 Draft jersey during a press conference at Rogers Arena February 28, 2018 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. "But it would not surprise me if three or four or five players out of this draft start out in the National Hockey League next season".

The Buffalo Sabres entered Saturday night with the best odds at winning the NHL Draft Lottery.

Waddell said the good fortune will alter the way the Hurricanes approach their offseason, their first under new owner Tom Dundon, who is looking to hire a coach and general manager. Russian forward Andrei Svechnikov is the top-ranked North American prospect based on him playing for Barrie of the Ontario Hockey League. They took Jeff Catrer (11th overall) and Mike Richards (24th) in 2003; Ivan Provorov (seventh) and Travis Konecny (24th) in 2015; and Nolan Patrick (second) and Frost past year.

But is Keenum a long-term answer or just a stopgap improvement over Trevor Siemian? "Hello, Cleveland? This is John Elway". Saints and Cowboys fans in the area can't wait to find out who their team is going to pick in the first round.


It'll be interesting to see how the Canucks approach the draft, as Benning will have many options in either trading up, moving down or standing pat. "You go there knowing you're probably going to pick seventh or eighth". The value if you decide to trade that pick, what that value could be with that type of pick, so I think this changes 100 percent the thinking. The Sabres selected winger Sam Reinhart second overall.

The Red Wings had an 8.5 percent chance of winning the lottery and a 26.1 percent chance of finishing in the top three. The Hurricanes had just a three per cent chance of earning the top selection, the 11th-best odds, and jumped to second overall. But we can look on the bright side tomorrow.

"I certainly know the disappointment from those couple of years, but what people have to understand is we brought in excellent players in those years", Botterill said, referring to Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart.
