Calgary, AB – The WHL Bantam Draft lottery was held today at the WHL Office in Calgary to determine the order of the first six selections in the first round of the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft.

The WHL Bantam Draft Lottery involved the six non-playoff teams (Vancouver, Prince George, Brandon, Regina, Moose Jaw and Lethbridge) from the 2012-13 season.  A team could only move up a maximum of two positions in the Bantam Draft. 

The Lottery selection process was performed by Miranda Stacey from KPMG.  The 2013 WHL Bantam Draft will be held in Calgary, AB, on Thursday, May 2, 2013.

A Regina Pats ball was drawn in the lottery, meaning Regina moves up two spots in the first round of the draft and will select second overall.  The Vancouver Giants will select first overall, the Prince George Cougars will have the third selection, the Brandon Wheat Kings will have the fourth selection, the Moose Jaw Warriors will select fifth, and the Lethbridge Hurricanes will select sixth overall. 

The order of the second round and all other rounds will be the inverse order of final 2012-13 WHL regular-season standings.

Players eligible for the 2013 WHL Bantam Draft will be 1998-born players who reside in Alberta, B.C., Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Northwest Territories, Yukon, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Kansas, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.
