The Las Vegas Golden Knights' first pick in franchise history will be the sixth overall selection, unless there's a trade.

The Golden Knights were given the same odds of winning the lottery as the Arizona Coyotes, which had the third worst record in 2016-17, so there was a decent chance that Vegas would end up in the top five. Instead, Vegas dropped as far as the lottery rules would allow. "You want to pick as high as you can," Vegas GM George McPhee said. "But we’re sixth, and we’ll find a good player at six. A lot of good players have come out of that spot." McPhee will entertain the possibility of moving up or down in the draft, so Vegas might not end up getting that pick
