NHL Draft Lottery Tonight
Tonight, the Minnesota Wild and the other 29 teams in the NHL will find out where they will pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. The Wild will host the League event in St. Paul at Xcel Energy Center on Friday, June 24 and Saturday, June 25.

Based on the current lottery system, the Wild could land the sixth, 10th or 11th overall pick.

The lottery will begin at 7:00 PM tonight, and can be viewed live here on, beginning at 6:45. Click here to watch the live stream.

Per NHL rules, the club selected in the Draft Drawing may not move up more than four positions in the draft order. Thus, the only clubs with the opportunity to receive the first overall selections are the five teams with the lowest regular-season point totals - Edmonton, Colorado, Florida, New York Islanders and Ottawa. No club can move down more than one position as a result of the Draft Drawing.

If there are no changes, the Wild would pick 10th overall, but there is a 2.1% chance of the team moving up to number six. The lowest Minnesota can pick would be 11th overall.
