The big winner at the draft lottery could well be the Colorado Avalanche, which holds the Ottawa Senators’ first-round pick this season courtesy of the Matt Duchene trade last season.

After trading away their top three goal-scorers at the deadline, the Senators finished in last place overall in the NHL – which means the Avs will have an 18.5 per cent chance of winning the Draft Lottery and the opportunity to select Jack Hughes No. 1 overall in the 2019 Draft.

The Edmonton Oilers have a 6.5 per cent chance and the Vancouver Canucks have a five per cent chance.

The Draft Lottery will be held tonight in Toronto.

Here are the lottery odds for all 15 non-playoff teams, ranked according to point percentage.
