Just like everything else this season, the bouncing lottery ball did not fall the Sens way tonight as the New Jersey Devils won the Draft Lottery, dropping the Ottawa Senators in the draft order.
The Ottawa Senators will select 6th, unless they make a deal to move up.
With the Devils winning the lottery, the Oilers retain the first overall pick in the draft in June. A disappointing result for Sens fans but certainly not something to panic over. The Senators have the assets to move up should they chose to do so, and if they don’t, it still looks like they will get one of the forwards we have talked about over the course of the season.
Here is a look at the North American skater ratings that were released the other day.
