Jump to: navigation, search
At the 2011 NHL Entry Draft the Lightning's first selection was 27th overall.

The Tampa Bay Lightning are a professional ice hockey team based in Tampa, Florida. They are members of the Southeast Division of the Eastern Conference of the National Hockey League (NHL). The first entry draft they participated in was in 1992 where they selected Roman Hamrlik first overall. Since 1992 they have drafted 190 players from thirteen different nations.[1]

The NHL Entry Draft is held each June, allowing teams to select players who have turned 18 years old by September 15 in the year the draft is held. The draft order is determined by the previous season's order of finish, with non-playoff teams drafting first, followed by the teams that made the playoffs, with the specific order determined by the number of points earned by each team.[2] The NHL holds a weighted lottery for the 14 non-playoff teams, allowing the winner to move up a maximum of four positions in the entry draft.[3] The team with the fewest points has the best chance of winning the lottery, with each successive team given a lower chance of moving up in the draft.[2] Between 1986 and 1994, the NHL also held a Supplemental Draft for players in American colleges.[4]

The Lightning have held the first overall pick three times in franchise history. They have used these picks to select Hamrlik in 1992, Vincent Lecavalier in 1998, and Steven Stamkos in 2008. They also selected first in the 1992 NHL Supplemental Draft where they chose defenseman Cory Cross.[1] When they won the Stanley Cup in 2003–04 only five of the twenty players who dressed for game seven were drafted by Tampa Bay.[5]
