Draft order drawing scheduled for Tuesday

By ESPN.com

A drawing to determine the draft order for the 2011 NHL draft will take place Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET.

Only teams that did not qualify for the postseason will be involved in the drawing, unless a playoff team acquired the first-round pick from a non-playoff team.

NHL rules dictate that a team cannot move up more than four positions in the draft order, so only the five teams with the lowest regular-season point total are eligible to receive the first overall pick.

Percentage chance of a team being selected in the draft drawing:

Edmonton - 25.0 percent

Colorado - 18.8 percent

Florida - 14.2 percent

NY Islanders - 10.7 percent

Ottawa - 8.1 percent

Atlanta - 6.2 percent

Columbus - 4.7 percent

New Jersey - 3.6 percent

Boston (from TOR) - 2.7 percent

Minnesota - 2.1 percent

Colorado (conditional/optional from STL) - 1.5 percent

Carolina - 1.1 percent

Calgary - 0.8 percent

Dallas - 0.5 percent

The draft will take place at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn., June 24-25.
