The Colorado Avalanche will get the No. 3 overall pick in the NHL draft after their worst season since moving from Quebec to Denver in 1995.

The Avalanche finished last in the Western Conference after their first losing season in Colorado. That means they'll get one of the top picks of the draft Friday in Montreal.

The New York Islanders own the top pick, followed by the Tampa Bay Lightning.
