Calgary, AB - The WHL Bantam Draft lottery was held today at the WHL Office in Calgary to determine the order of the first six selections in the first round of the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft.

The WHL Bantam Draft Lottery involved the six non-playoff teams (Edmonton, Lethbridge, Prince Albert, Prince George, Regina and Seattle) from the 2009-10 season.

The Lottery selection process was performed by Andy Mark from KPMG. The 2010 WHL Bantam Draft will be held in Edmonton on Thursday, April 29, 2010.

The Seattle Thunderbirds will have the fourth pick overall while the Regina Pats and the Prince Albert Raiders will draft in the fifth and sixth positions respectively.

The order of the second round and all other rounds will be the inverse order of final 2009-10 WHL regular-season standings.
