Final Order for Entry Draft Set
Trades over the next two weeks could change the order for this year\'s NHL Entry Draft, but it\'s been set for now after Pittsburgh beat Detroit to win the Stanley Cup on Friday night.
Ducks Draft Guide

When Commissioner Gary Bettman handed the Stanley Cup to Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby, the final chapter to a sensational 2008-09 season was written.

It also set the final order for the 2009 Entry Draft, in which the Ducks will have the 15th pick in the first round based on their playoff performance and regular season points.

Who goes first? Experts can't agree

NHL.com takes an updated guess at the 2009 first round. KIMELMAN DRAFT II | HOLLAND DRAFT II ALL NHL ENTRY DRAFT STORIES ›
By winning the Stanley Cup, the Penguins earned the No. 30 selection in the first round of the June 26-27 selection process. The Red Wings will pick No. 29.

Entire 2009 NHL Entry Draft Order of Selection

While it's likely there will be some movement between now and draft night, the order currently remains the same for the first 14 picks as it did the night of the draft lottery -- the New York Islanders will pick first, followed by the Tampa Bay Lightning, Colorado Avalanche, Atlanta Thrashers and Los Angeles Kings.

Phoenix, Toronto, Dallas, Ottawa and Edmonton round out the top 10, followed by Nashville, Minnesota, Buffalo and Florida among teams that missed the postseason.

The order for the rest of the selections was set on playoff results. The next seven spots went to teams that lost in the first two rounds based on regular-season points, which means the Ducks' 15th pick is followed by Columbus, St. Louis, Montreal and the New York Rangers.

Calgary will pick No. 20; they had the option of sending this year's first-round pick or next year's to Phoenix as part of the Olli Jokinen deal. Philadelphia will pick No. 21.

The next five spots went to division winners that lost in the first two rounds, based on regular-season points, which means Vancouver will pick at No. 22, followed by New Jersey, Washington and Boston.

The Islanders, the only team with two first-round picks, will select No. 26, which would have been San Jose's spot. The Sharks sent the much-traveled pick to Tampa Bay as part of the Dan Boyle trade last July. The Lightning sent the pick to Ottawa as part of the Andrej Meszaros deal in August, and Ottawa dealt the pick to the Islanders in exchange for Mike Comrie and Chris Campoli in February.

The Carolina Hurricanes, who lost to Pittsburgh in the Eastern Conference Finals, will pick at No. 27, and the Chicago Blackhawks, who lost in the Western Conference Finals, will pick No. 28.

The first round of the draft will be held Friday, June 26 (7 p.m. ET, VERSUS, TSN, RDS). Rounds 2-7 will be Saturday, June 27 (10 a.m. ET, NHLN, RDS).
