Florida Panthers win No. 1 pick in NHL Draft Lottery
The Florida Panthers will pick first in the 2014 NHL Draft after winning the lottery Tuesday.

The Florida Panthers will pick first in the 2014 NHL Draft after winning the lottery Tuesday.

As the 29th-place team in the final 2013-14 NHL standings, the Panthers entered with an 18.8 percent chance of getting the No. 1 pick.

The Buffalo Sabres had the best chance to win the lottery (25 percent) based on their 30th-place finish. The Sabres will pick second.

The draft will be held June 27-28 at Wells Fargo Center, with the Philadelphia Flyers as host.

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.

The first-round positions for the 16 teams in the Stanley Cup Playoffs (picks 14-29) will be determined by those results.

The New Jersey Devils did not make the playoffs but were not eligible to win the lottery due to punishments relating to salary-cap circumvention. The Devils will select 30th in the first round.

Here are 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

The Islanders have the option to keep their pick or transfer it to the Buffalo Sabres as part of the in-season trade involving forward Thomas Vanek.
