    Default T'birds gets toselect first in draft

    The WHL Bantam Draft lottery was held at the WHL Office in Calgary on Wednesday, March 21st, to determine the order of the first six selections in the first round of the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft.

    The WHL Bantam Draft Lottery involved the six non-playoff teams (Prince Albert, Prince George, Seattle, Lethbridge, Swift Current and Red Deer) from the 2011-12 season.

    The 2012 WHL Bantam Draft will be held in Calgary, AB, on May 3, 2012.

    A Seattle Thunderbirds ball was drawn first in the lottery, giving the Thunderbirds the first overall selection in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft. The Prince Albert Raiders, based on their position in the overall 2011-12 WHL Regular Season standings, will receive the second pick in the first round. The Prince George Cougars will select third, followed by the Lethbridge Hurricanes, Swift Current Broncos and Red Deer Rebels, who will draft in the fourth, fifth and sixth positions, respectively.
