Today is officially the day a lot of Ducks fans have been waiting for for months. It is the day of the draft lottery!

As a reminder the first 3 picks in the entry draft are determined by a lottery format. If you want an example of how the lottery happens, see the video below. Keep in mind though that this video was for the McDavid draft, when only the first pick was determined by a lottery. Now this process occurs for the top 3 picks.

The Ducks finished the season 24th out of 31 teams this season, leaving the Ducks with the 8th best odds for tonight's draft lottery. The Ducks will have a 6% chance of winning the 1st overall pick and a 19% chance of jumping up into a top 3 spot. The possible draft positions for the Ducks are 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 8th, 9th, 10th, or 11th.
