I didn't realize the WHL had a lottery for the 1st overall pick in the Bantam draft. I guess I didn't pay much attention since the Hitmen always draft later on.
The 6 non play off teams are entered in the draw.

The Hitmen need to hope that Swift Current or Regina's ball is not drawn first. This will give Calgary the 2nd overal pick. However, anybody else's ball would mean Hitmen get the #1 pick.

I hope they get somebody good that will be able to step up in a couple years from now.

On another note the Hitmen drew 334 812 fans this year (9300 per game). That is the best in the WHL and second most in history behind the 2004/2005 Hitmen. Not too shabby for a last place team. I am sure, the Championship from last year and the chance to get World Junior Tickets for this year probably had something to do with it, but still - way to go fans.
