NHL Draft: 5 best prospects for the Carolina Hurricanes to pursue

NHL Draft: 5 best prospects for the Carolina Hurricanes to pursue

For the third time in franchise history, the Buffalo Sabres will have the No. 1 overall pick in the NHL Draft. The lottery was a bit unkind to Detroit as the team went into it most likely to finish with the fifth overall pick.

In 2014 and 2015 the Sabres had the best odds to win the lottery but things didn't bounce their way.

"We're absolutely ecstatic", Sabres general manager Jason Botterill said before noting the splashes the Buffalo Bills made in the first round of the National Football League draft on Thursday.

"The type of defenceman that pretty much all 31 teams in the National Hockey League want these days", said Botterill who watched Dahlin at the 2018 world juniors in Buffalo. "And I'm very happy for our group".

The Montreal Canadiens need offence and the third pick should be Filip Zadina of the Halifax Mooseheads.

This year's draft will be in Dallas on June 22-23.

Bills land their quarterback: Josh Allen
The Buffalo Bills spent previous year trading for future picks to have versatility in the 2018 National Football League draft. Allen is still expected to be among the top quarterbacks selected after the 2018 NFL Draft kicks off just hours from now.

At the sixth pick, the worst-case scenario is that the Red Wings will have their choice of three of the second-tier defensemen available after missing out on Rasmus Dahlin.

Hurricanes president Don Waddell already anticipates Buffalo selecting Dahlin.

Jumping up nine spots is a major win for the team, and a great opportunity for new owner Thomas Dundon to start rebuilding his franchise.

Carolina is searching for a general manager after Ron Francis was reassigned to another front-office position last season.

The Buffalo Sabres have an 18.5 percent chance of winning the No. 1 pick. Last week, coach Bill Peters announced his resignation and was then hired by the Calgary Flames on Monday. And Dahlin also had an assist in two games at the Pyeongchang Olympics in February. The pick acquired from the St. Louis Blues was still up in the air with the draft lottery. The lottery has again benefitted the Flyers, who don't have to wait another year for the additional first-round pick.
