Winnipeg Jets

2nd Round over; Jets 1st round pick from Buffalo determined

Jets second 1st round pick is determined.

Draft 2015

As part of the Evander Kane/Zach Bogosian trade to Buffalo the Jets got a 1st round draft pick in addition to Tyler Myers, Drew Stafford, Joel Armia and Brendan Lemieux.  This 1st round pick was actually the Blues 1st round pick that the Sabres had acquired as part of the Ryan Miller/Steve Ott trade to St. Louis back on February 28, 2014.

We had to wait until the 2nd Round of the Stanley Cup playoffs ended to find out where the Jets pick would fall and according to Elliotte Friedman this is how the draft order will look:

So the Jets will have their own pick at 17 and the acquired pick at 25.  The only change we could have seen was if the Capitals had advanced to the 3rd round, then the Jets pick would have moved to 24.

Ezra and I will be at the draft in Florida in June and will have plenty of coverage from Sunrise on site throughout the weekend.

In case you are wondering how the entry draft order is determined here are the official rules from the NHL:

Entry Draft Order

The order of selection among the Member Clubs in each season shall be determined in the following manner:
A composite of all Member Clubs shall be prepared by placing:

i) First the Clubs which failed to qualify for the preceding playoffs in the order of points earned by each of them in the regular schedule of the preceding season starting with the Club having the lowest points total and followed by the Club having the next lowest points total, and so forth.

ii) The Clubs which participated in the preceding playoffs (but had not been ranked first in their respective Divisions and had not won the Stanley Cup that season) in order of points earned by each of them in the regular schedule of the preceding season starting with the Club having the lowest total points and followed by the Club having the next lowest total points, and so forth.

iii) The Clubs which had been ranked first in their Divisions during the next preceding season (but had not won the Stanley Cup that season) in the order of points earned by each of them in the regular schedule of the preceding season starting with the Club having the lowest total points and followed by the Club having the next lowest total points, and so forth.

iv) The Stanley Cup winner shall select last, thus, positioning all Clubs on the list.
In the event of a tie for any position, such tie shall be resolved by application of the rules governing the determination of final League standings. The resulting list shall constitute the order of selection.
