Blackhawks' lottery odds for 2021 NHL Draft determined originally appeared on NBC Sports Chicago
After the Calgary Flames defeated the Vancouver Canucks 6-2 on Wednesday to officially wrap up the regular season, the Blackhawks have secured the 12th-best odds to land the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NHL Draft at 2.7 percent. They have a 5.2 percent chance of locking up the No. 2 overall pick.
For reference, the Blackhawks had an 8.2 percent of landing a Top 3 pick in 2019 and moved nine spots from 12 to 3 to take Kirby Dach. The odds aren't favorable, but it's possible.
If the Blackhawks don't jump inside the Top 2 this year, they will likely have the No. 11 overall pick because the Arizona Coyotes forfeited their first-round selection for NHL combine testing violations.
The NHL Draft Lottery will be held on Wednesday, June 2. The draft is slated for July 23 and 24.
