Edmonton holds one draft pick in the first round and will be selecting 14th overall.

The Oilers don’t have a draft pick in the second round as it was traded to the Detroit Red Wings in the Andreas Athanasiou deal. In the third round, Edmonton’s pick, 76th overall, could be given to the Calgary Flames as decided through the James Neal deal. If the Oilers don’t give up the pick, they will forfeit their 2021 3rd round pick.

Edmonton has no fourth-round pick which was traded to the Red Wings in exchange for Mike Green. In round five, the Oilers hold the 138th overall selection and in the sixth round, Edmonton picks 169th overall.

Their last selection comes in the 7th round, 200th overall.
