Draft lottery watch: April 26

With the Dallas Stars now officially out of the playoff race, it’s time to look again at the NHL Draft Lottery. The Stars currently sit in 11th place in the lottery standings, which would give them a 1.5 percent chance of winning the lottery and getting the first overall pick in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

The lottery will be held Monday April 29 at 7:00 p.m. CT. It will be televised live on TSN in Canada and carried on the NBC Sports Network as well.

The NHL Draft is June 30 in New Jersey. Earlier this week, NHL Central Scouting released its final draft rankings. Defenseman Seth Jones is the top North American skater. You can see the Central Scouting rankings here.
