It’s officially official: the National Hockey League has set the order of selection for the 2013 NHL Draft, which goes this Sunday in New Jersey.
The Winnipeg Jets will have 10 picks, including six in the first three rounds.
The Jets will pick 13th in the first round, 43rd, 59th and 61st in the second round – No. 59 a compensatory as the club did not sign 2008 first-round choice Daulton Leveille and No. 61 courtesy of the Chicago Blackhawks in the Johnny Oduya trade. Winnipeg picks 74th and 91st in the third round, No. 91 the other choice acquired from the Hawks for Oduya.
The Jets pick 104th overall in the fourth round, 134th in the fifth, gave up their sixth (164th) to Pittsburgh for Eric Tangradi and then have two choices in the seventh and final round – the 190th from New Jersey in the Alex Ponikarovsky deal and their own at 194.
The draft starts at 2 p.m. Sunday from Prudential Center in Newark, NJ, with all seven rounds completed in one day.
