The NHL just announced potentially the biggest day in San Jose Sharks history since the 2016 Stanley Cup Final.

The NHL Draft Lottery will be held on May 8 at 4 PM PT.

For the San Jose Sharks, and several bottom-dwelling NHL teams, this event will cement who drafts potential generational talent Connor Bedard. The 17-year-old phenom has 61 goals and 125 points in 51 WHL games with the Regina Pats. He also put up nine goals and 23 points while securing a gold medal with Canada at the World Junior Championships.

The Sharks, with their loss to the NHL-worst Columbus Blue Jackets, were the first NHL team officially eliminated from playoff contention. San Jose has never selected first-overall and will be chomping at the bit to rebuild around a top talent like Bedard.

The NHL Draft Lottery will be broadcast on ESPN. As a reminder, here are the current odds for the first-overall pick:
