Blackhawks get No. 27 pick in NHL Draft with Predators loss

The Chicago Blackhawks will have the No. 27 pick in the 2018 NHL Draft after the Nashville Predators were eliminated from the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Chicago acquired the pick Feb. 26 in a trade that sent forward Ryan Hartman to Nashville. The Blackhawks (33-39-10) also hold the No. 8 pick after falling one spot in the NHL Draft Lottery, held April 28.

As the Presidents' Trophy winner this season, that is the highest pick Nashville could have had. If the Predators advanced to the Stanley Cup Final, as they did last season, the pick would have been No. 30 or No. 31.

Nashville, the defending Western Conference champion, was eliminated with a 5-1 loss to the Winnipeg Jets in Game 7 on Thursday. Hartman was traded for the first-round pick and a fourth-round pick in the 2018 draft, and forward prospect Victor Ejdsell.
