The Buffalo Sabres are going to find out whether they will still be drafting at sixth spot in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, or whether they’ll be moving up or down. The Lottery itself will be happening behind the scenes, with the results announced a little after 8pm tonight on NBC, Sportsnet, CBC and TVA Sports, just before the marquee Washington vs Pittsburgh game tonight.

Here’s the only information you need for the Lottery tonight - the composite odds chart for all the teams. The preview earlier today has a lot more technical information if that’s what you’re looking for.
