Okay, this is huge. The NHL draft lottery just ended. Literally just ended not even 10 minutes ago. But if you would’ve told me the Blackhawks hold the 3rd pick in the 2019 draft, I would’ve told you to go to hell.
I haven’t been this lucky in a while and I don’t know why God chose April 9th out of all days to bring this luck upon me. I’m not complaining, though. Keep it coming!
The Blackhawks entered the night with the 12th best odds to win the lottery. 2.5% to be exact. They jumped from 12 to 3. The third pick in the 2019 NHL draft belongs to the Chicago Blackhawks.
Now, the question is who are they going to pick? Hughes and Kappo are basically locks for the 1st and 2nd picks. It sucks, I know. It’s really a sticky situation with Podkolzin at the 3 spot. I just don’t know if I want to commit on that.
That’s not the point of this, though. The Blackhawks have the 3rd pick in the draft. 12th to 3rd. I’ll take that any day of the week and worry about it later.
