Fox Sports will release the NHL draft order on Tuesday night, and it looks like we’re not just talking about some random teams being picked in the first round.
In the past, teams that went to the draft in the middle of the season have received a few extra picks to get ready for next season.
This year, however, the lottery will be playing out on Wednesday, which means that teams that finished with less than 50 points will likely have to wait until the draft order is released before they can be selected in the draft.
