The NHL has announced the time of the draft lottery for the #1 overall pick. The league will hold the lottery on Monday at 6pm, and it will be televised on NBCSN and the NHL Network. The Rangers will have a 12.5% chance of landing that top pick.
That said, depending on how the rest of the play-in round goes, the Rangers may be guaranteed a top-ten pick, or they could fall as far back as #14. It’s really a wild card scenario.
Monday is the first day of the offseason for the Rangers. They’ve never had a #1 overall pick in their history. Drafted Alexis Lafreniere would certainly be an exclamation point on that footnote.
