How Toronto almost won the draft lottery, and New York Rangers social media team in love with lottery winning ball

The New York Rangers won the draft lottery last Monday and haven’t left cloud nine since. As the balls rattled around and almost came up Toronto Maple Leafs, the Blueshirts ultimately became victorious.

You need to realize this is a big deal. Alexis Lafreniere is a generational talent the likes of Sidney Crosby and Connor McDavid. He really could be that good. So when you see the Rangers social media team living it up, it’s completely understandable.
