Multiply them together and the probability that this scenario happens is .0051 per cent.
The highest chance of the Jackets getting all three is .051%. 10% (5/50) x 8% (4/49) x 6% (3/48) (rounding ignored here). That is assuming the Rangers and Kings happen to win the first two. If you say for sure that is going to happen then I think its the scenario above that dictates the probability of that happening.
Corrections welcomed.

More worried about getting picks 28, 29 and 30 which would be the luck of Columbus
