The Chicago Blackhawks have the first pick in the Draft, where they’re likely to take C Connor Bedard of the Western Hockey League — so much so that DraftKings Sportsbook has closed its betting markets on the No. 1 pick. Anaheim has the second pick in the Draft, where they’re likely to select C Adam Fantilli, who won the Hobey Baker Award at Michigan last season. He has -550 odds to go to Anaheim with the No. 2 pick, while Swedish F Leo Carlsson is at -250 to go No. 3.
