Red Wings will pick No. 6 overall, don't move in NHL Draft lottery

Posted at 8:56 PM, Jun 02, 2021

The Red Wings will pick sixth in the 2021 NHL Draft.

Silver lining? Maybe? At least they didn't fall in the lottery.

The Red Wings had the sixth-best odds to land the top pick. They finished with the fifth-worst record, but expansion Seattle slotted into the lottery with the third-best odds.

They slid in the last four drafts, including 2020's lottery despite finishing with the league's worst record.
