NHL Draft 2012 - 2013



The 2012 NHL Entry Draft will be the 50th NHL Entry Draft. The draft will be held on June 22?23, 2012 at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It is the first time Pittsburgh will host the draft since the 1997 NHL Entry Draft.

Eligibility


Ice hockey players born between January 1, 1992 and September 14, 1994 are eligible for selection in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. Additionally, un-drafted, non-North American players over the age of 20 are eligible for the draft; and those players who were drafted in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, but not signed by an NHL team and who were born after June 24, 1992, were also eligible to re-enter the draft.

Draft lottery


The NHL draft lottery enables a team to move up to four spots ahead in the draft. Thus, only the bottom five teams were eligible to receive the number one draft pick. The Edmonton Oilers won the 2012 draft lottery that took place on April 10, thus moving them up from the second pick to the first pick.
