With the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NHL Draft up for grabs, one lucky NHL team will go home with the evening's biggest prize when NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly reveals the draft order on the 2012 Scotiabank NHL Draft Lottery, exclusively on TSN NOW.

TSN's production of the 2012 Scotiabank NHL Draft Lottery can also be viewed on demand afterwards on TSN.ca.

Daly joins host James Duthie and Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie for the show, which features representatives from each of the five teams eligible to win the first overall pick:

- Columbus Blue Jackets Executive Vice-President of Hockey Operations and GM Scott Howson

- Edmonton Oilers GM Steve Tambellini

- Montreal Canadiens Assistant GM Larry Carriere

- New York Islanders Director of Pro Scouting Ken Morrow

- Toronto Maple Leafs President and GM Brian Burke

This year, the Blue Jackets have the greatest probability of picking first overall in the NHL Draft.

Also in studio for the 2012 Scotiabank NHL Draft Lottery is TSN Scout Craig Button, who will project how the first 14 picks will unfold once the draft order is determined, while McKenzie ranks the consensus Top 10 prospects.  In addition, the show includes a feature on consensus No. 1-ranked prospect Nail Yakupov of the Sarnia Sting.
