The 2021 NHL Draft Lottery just came to a close and the New Jersey Devils sealed the fourth spot in the draft. This is the first time in the past few draft lotteries that the Devils did not move up or down from their projected position.
In 2017 and 2019, the Devils moved actually won the lottery and got the chance to choose first overall. In last year’s lottery, the Devils dropped from sixth to seventh. Despite not winning the draft lottery this year, the Devils are in a great position to draft an amazing player that fits their needs.
