 April 8th, 2019

The 2019 NHL Draft Lottery, which will determine the order of selection for the first 15 picks in the first round of the 2019 NHL Draft, will be held on Tuesday, April 9, in Toronto. The Ducks currently own the No. 8 slot in the lottery, which holds a 6.0% chance of selecting first overall in the 2019 NHL Draft. Based on lottery results, the Ducks could select 8-11 or 1-3 (first three picks go to lottery winners). The results of the Draft Lottery will be revealed live by NBCSN during a one-hour show beginning at 5 p.m. PT.

The Ducks are the NHL’s most successful team drafting players into the NHL since 2010, having done so without a top-five overall selection (Anaheim has not selected in the top five since 2005, qualifying for the playoffs in 11 of 14 seasons since then). Anaheim has selected 58 players since 2010, with a league-leading 51.7% (30 players, tied with Boston) making it to the NHL (the league average is 38.0%). Those 30 players have combined to play 4,810 NHL games, led by Cam Fowler (620) and Hampus Lindholm(447). Additionally, eight of those 30 players (26.7% percent) have played 250-or-more NHL games, which also leads the league.

Among players drafted after the first round since 2010, the Ducks co-lead the league with 41.7% of drafted players reaching the NHL (tied with Boston). That group of players includes both of the top-two goaltenders (ranked by games played) who have been drafted since 2010. John Gibson (236 games) was drafted by the Ducks in the second round in 2011, and Frederik Andersen (317 games) was selected in the third round in 2012. The Ducks acquired two draft picks (Sam Steel and Max Comtois) for Andersen in 2016.

During the 2018-19 NHL season, the Ducks led the NHL in games played by drafted defensemen (418). Anaheim also ranked second in most rookies (16), games played by rookies (325) and games played by defensemen aged 27-or-younger (449).

Anaheim owns two picks in the first round (the additional selection comes from San Jose or St. Louis). The Ducks currently own three of the top 39 picks in the 2019 draft.
