Auston Matthews

NHL Central Scouting has just released their Midterm Rankings, found here, so why not do a mock draft. It has been a while since I used the NHL Draft Lottery Simulator.

The NHL Draft Order is determined by a draft lottery. The top 3 picks are a draft lottery pick. I ran the lottery simulator once.

Who was the winner of the NHL draft lottery for 2016? The Toronto Maple Leafs!! They can finally draft a franchise changing player in Auston Matthews.

Here are the NHL draft lottery results. Remember the top 3 picks are lottery picks:
