2021 NHL Draft Lottery Open Thread - Can the Blue Jackets win the first overall pick? When and where to watch the proceedings.

Tonight is the 2021 NHL Draft Lottery. The Columbus Blue Jackets enter the lottery with the 5th best odds for the top overall pick.

The Buffalo Sabres have the best odds for the first overall pick at 16.6%. The newly christened Seattle Kraken will enter the lottery with the third overall best odds, the same as the Vegas Golden Knights did. The Arizona Coyotes, with just a 3.1% chance at the first pick, have forfeited their pick due to combine testing violations, and a Coyotes win will result in a re-draw.
