The 2022 NHL Draft Lottery was held Tuesday night and congratulations are in order for the Montreal Canadiens, who retained the No. 1 pick, and the New Jersey Devils for moving up to the No. 2 spot in a draft that has some quality players available at the top.

I break down a ton of thoughts about the lottery as a whole, what this means for Montreal, what this means for the other teams at the top and where it is reasonable to expect a number of these players to go.

On top of that, I answered a ton of listener questions specific to the NHL Draft Lottery and the 2022 draft class as a whole. I also took some time to chat about the upcoming IIHF Men’s World Championship.

You can also check out my 16-pick Mock Draft at, which covers any picks I did not get to in the podcast.
