          • 2024 NHL draft order: Picks 1-28 following draft lottery, playoff results (3)

            ESPN staffMay 21, 2024, 12:45 PM ET

          The 2024 NHL draft will take place at The Sphere in Las Vegas on June 28 and 29. Hundreds of prospects will be selected over the course of the seven-round event, and the first 16 picks have been determined by way of the NHL draft lottery.

          After finishing the 2023-24 season with the worst record, the San Jose Sharks had the best chance to win the draft lottery -- and did so. The Chicago Blackhawks -- who won the draft lottery and selected Connor Bedard No. 1 last year -- have pick No. 2.

          Here is a list of the first 16 picks, which will be updated after the full draft order is known following the end of the 2024 Stanley Cup playoffs.
