Simulating the 2022 NHL Draft Lottery 100 times

The 2022 NHL Draft Lottery will be held on Tuesday, May 10 at the NHL Network studio in Secaucus, New Jersey. The draft lottery will determine the order of selection for the first 16 picks in the first round of the 2022 NHL Draft. The 2022 NHL Draft will take place in Montreal, Canada on July 7 and will feature top prospects Shane Wright, Logan Cooley, and several other big-name players.

Using the website http://www.tankathon.com, I simulated the 2022 Draft Lottery 100 times to see how many times each team received the 1st and 2nd overall pick.
