The Chicago Blackhawks had a very bad season. They played their game against the Buffalo Sabres and they were defeated in overtime by a final score of 3-2. After 82 games, they finished the season with a record of 28-42-12 for 68 standings points.
As a result, they have the 6th best odds of winning the 2022 NHL Draft Lottery. If they don’t win one of the two lottery picks (1st/2nd overall), their first-round pick goes to the Columbus Blue Jackets as a result of the Seth Jones trade. If they do win it, that pick becomes a 2023 first.
