It's lucky 13 for the Winnipeg Jets at NHL draft

  • Print

The 13th pick of the upcoming NHL entry draft will belong to the Winnipeg Jets.

That’s the result of tonight’s draft lottery, which saw the Colorado Avalanche win the lottery and move from the second spot to No. 1.

Florida had the greatest odds of winning the lottery — 25 per cent — but didn’t.

The Jets could make some or no transactions before the June 30 draft in New Jersey.

If they stand with what they’ve got, they’ll have six selections in the first three rounds and 10 in the whole seven-round process.

Winnipeg has its own first-round pick, three in the second and two in the third round in this draft.

The Jets haven’t had this late a selection since 2007, when they chose 67th after a series of trades. Of its 14 previous drafts, the only other time the franchise picked later than 13th was in 2005, when it chose Alex Bourret with the 16th overall pick.
