Stars will have No. 11 pick in NHL draft

The NHL held its lottery Tuesday to settle the draft order for the 14 teams that missed the playoffs. The Stars' position didn't change, giving them the 11th pick.

In fact, the order based on the final regular-season standings remained intact, with the Edmonton Oilers getting the first overall pick for the first time.

Under the lottery system, only the five teams with the fewest points, or the teams owning the rights to those picks, had the chance to win the first overall selection; no team could move up more than four spots; and no team could move backward more than one.

Here's the order for the first 14 picks:

1. Edmonton Oilers

2. Boston Bruins (from Toronto)

3. Florida Panthers

4. Columbus Blue Jackets

5. New York Islanders

6. Tampa Bay Lightning

7. Carolina Hurricanes

8. Atlanta Thrashers

9. Minnesota Wild

10. New York Rangers

11. Dallas Stars

12. Anaheim Ducks

13. Phoenix Coyotes (from Calgary)

14. St. Louis Blues
