The Calgary Flames now know they will be drafting at the No. 9 overall pick in the 2024 NHL Draft, with many talented players expected to be available by the time the Flames are officially on the clock. From Tij Iginla to Sam Dickonson and Berkly Catton to so many more, this draft is shaping up to be very unpredictable with some top tier talent expected to be available for Calgary.

We’ve also heard rumours that the team could look to move back into the lottery by using Jacob Markstrom and their late first-round pick in 2024, so the 2024 NHL Draft could ultimately become a franchise changing weekend for this team.

With six weeks left on the clock until the draft, we will have plenty of time to look to the potential future of the Flames, but for now, let’s take a look back on the past decade of the No. 9 overall pick to see what type of talent consistently falls to this selection.
