After a second-half surge, the Hurricanes finished 24th in the NHL, placing them seventh from the bottom for the NHL Draft. But Tuesday night's NHL Draft Drawing gives Carolina a 4.7 percent chance of moving up four spots to the No. 3 spot in the June 25-26 draft. One ping pong ball will be drawn, with the winner moving up to four spots higher in the draft.
The odds are: Edmonton 25.0%; Boston (from TOR) 18.8%; Florida 14.2%; Columbus 10.7%; NY Islanders 8.1%; Tampa Bay 6.2%; Carolina 4.7%; Atlanta 3.6%; Minnesota 2.7%; NY Rangers 2.1%; Dallas 1.5%; Anaheim 1.1%; Phoenix (from CGY) 0.8%; St. Louis 0.5%.
The lottery will be at 8 p.m. on Versus, TSN and NHL.com.
