2018 Official NHL Entry Draft Order

All the picks and where they came from.

NHL: NHL Draft David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Every year the NHL releases the official draft order. Not that we can’t look it up on various sites, but this gives us a searchable list we can keep handy.

There are more first-round picks that changed hands than there usually are, but they aren’t (mostly) high picks. There is the usual glut of second- and third-round picks that have been traded, and then that tails off. The later-round picks will not move until the second day of the draft, generally, just before they’re used.
