The San Jose Sharks expected to get the No. 1 pick since the team had the worst record (19-54-9) in the entire league. However, no matter which teams gets the No. 1 pick, it’s expected that Boston University superstar forward Macklin Celebrini will have his name called first by NHL Commissioner Gary Bruce Bettman.

The draft lottery takes place at NHL Network Studios in Secaucus, New Jersey on Tuesday, May 7 starting at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT. The event happens just before Game 2 of the Carolina Hurricanes vs. New York Rangers playoff series.
