Leafs To Select Eighth Overall

The 2014 NHL Draft lottery was held on Tuesday and the Florida Panthers will have the first overall selection on June 27th in Philadelphia after winning the lottery and pushing Buffalo to number two.

The Maple Leafs retained the eighth overall pick after having just a 3.6% chance of winning the first overall pick.

This will be third time in Leafs history that they will have the 8th pick in the NHL Draft. In 1970, the Leafs chose Darryl Sittler and in 1992, Brandon Convery was selected.

The weighted odds of winning the lottery were determined by regular-season point totals. The remaining 12 teams that were eligible to win the lottery are slotted in reverse order of their point totals.

Here is the draft order for the top 13 picks:

1. Florida Panthers

2. Buffalo Sabres

3. Edmonton Oilers

4. Calgary Flames

5. New York Islanders

6. Vancouver Canucks

7. Carolina Hurricanes

8. Toronto Maple Leafs

9. Winnipeg Jets

10. Anaheim Ducks (from Ottawa Senators)

11. Nashville Predators

12. Phoenix Coyotes

13. Washington Capitals
