NHL Entry Draft
 < 2011 2013 > 

The 2012 NHL Entry Draft was the 50th NHL Entry Draft. The draft was held June 22–23, 2012, at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.[1] It was the first time that Pittsburgh hosted the draft since the 1997 NHL Entry Draft. The top three picks were Nail Yakupov, Ryan Murray and Alex Galchenyuk.

Eligibility[edit]

Ice hockey players born between January 1, 1992, and September 15, 1994, were eligible for selection in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. Additionally, un-drafted, non-North American players over the age of 20 are eligible for the draft; and those players who were drafted in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, but not signed by an NHL team and who were born after June 24, 1992, were also eligible to re-enter the draft.[2]

Draft lottery[edit]

The NHL draft lottery enables a team to move up to four spots ahead in the draft. Thus, only the bottom five teams were eligible to receive the number one draft pick. Beginning with the 2013 NHL Entry Draft all fourteen teams not qualifying for the Stanley Cup playoffs will have a "weighted" chance at winning the first overall selection.[3] The Edmonton Oilers won the 2012 draft lottery that took place on April 10, 2012, thus moving them up from the second pick to the first pick.[4]

Notes
  • 1 The Edmonton Oilers' seventh-round pick went to the Dallas Stars as the result of a trade on June 23, 2012, that sent Dallas' seventh-round pick in 2013 to Los Angeles in exchange for this pick.[72]
    • Los Angeles previously acquired this pick as the result of a trade on June 26, 2011, that sent Ryan Smyth to Edmonton in exchange for Colin Fraser and this pick.[73]
  • 4 The Tampa Bay Lightning's seventh-round pick went to the Chicago Blackhawks as the result of a trade on June 23, 2012, that sent Chicago's fourth-round pick in 2012 to San Jose in exchange for San Jose's fourth-round pick in 2013 and this pick.[56]
    • San Jose previously acquired this pick as the result of a trade on February 16, 2012, that sent Minnesota's second-round pick in 2012 to Tampa Bay in exchange for Dominic Moore and this pick.[16]
  • 5 The Dallas Stars' seventh-round pick went to the Florida Panthers as the result of a trade on June 23, 2012, that sent Florida's seventh-round pick in 2013 to Dallas in exchange for this pick.[76]
  • 9 The Florida Panthers' seventh-round pick went to the Buffalo Sabres as the result of a trade on June 29, 2011, that sent Steve Montador to Chicago in exchange for this pick (being conditional at the time of the trade).[79] The condition, which was carried over from an earlier trade between Chicago and Florida – Florida's seventh-round pick in 2012 would be available[80] – was converted on July 7, 2011 when Alexander Sulzer was signed by the Vancouver Canucks,[81] meaning that a condition of a trade between Florida and the Nashville Predators involving Sulzer and this pick did not come into effect.[82]
    • Chicago previously acquired the pick as the result of a trade on June 26, 2011, that sent Tomas Kopecky to Florida in exchange for this pick.[80]
