FLYERS PICKS IN THE 2014 NHL ENTRY DRAFT
1. Florida Panthers
With the Stanley Cup Final complete and the Los Angeles Kings winning the Stanley Cup for the second time in three seasons, the order for the first round of the 2014 NHL Draft has been finalized.
The first 13 slots were set by the NHL Draft Lottery, which was held April 15 and won by the Florida Panthers.
In addition, the New Jersey Devils were awarded pick No. 30 as relief from an earlier penalty for circumventing the salary cap when they signed Ilya Kovalchuk in 2010.
Among teams that made the Stanley Cup Playoffs, non-division winners eliminated in the first two rounds were placed in inverse order of regular-season points, followed by division winners in inverse order of regular-season points.
The teams eliminated in the conference finals, the Montreal Canadiens and Chicago Blackhawks, will choose 26th and 27th, respectively.
The New York Rangers' pick will be No. 28 and the Cup champion Kings will pick 29th.
Two teams currently have multiple first-round picks. The Anaheim Ducks have their pick at No. 24 and also have the No. 10 pick from the Ottawa Senators, acquired last summer as part of the Bobby Ryan trade.
The Tampa Bay Lightning also have two selections; their pick at No. 19 and No. 28 from the Rangers as part of the Martin St. Louis trade. The pick was transferred to the Lightning when the Rangers advanced to the Eastern Conference Final.
