from Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press,
Now that the Stanley Cup playoffs are down to the final four teams, the draft order for the first 27 spots has been finalized.
The Wings sat steady in the June 2 draft lottery, getting the sixth pick. But they have a second first-round pick thanks to general manager Steve Yzerman’s trade-deadline deal with the Washington Capitals, and that will be at 22nd.
The first round is July 23.
The spot would have been at 23rd had the Arizona Coyotes not violated combine testing policy in 2019-20; part of the penalty for that was forfeiture of what would have been the 11th pick this year.
