Draft Picks

The KHL typicaly holds two drafts each off season. The Prospect Draft is a draft for picking young players with little to no NHL experience mirroring the NHL's Entry Draft. Each team is given three rounds of picks and draft order is reverse order of standing from the previous season. The non-playoff teams are entered into a draft lottery for the top pick.

Eligibily for the Prospect draft is as follows: Any player aged at least 18 as of September 15 of the year of the draft, has not played 30 career NHL games, and is not property of a KHL team.

The NHL draft is two rounds and consists of players not protected by KHL teams prior to the season. Any player who has played at least one NHL game is eligible.
