DRAFT IN HERE

Chicago won the NHL lottery Tuesday, giving the Blackhawks the first pick in the June draft. The Blackhawks had the fifth worst record and only an 8.1 percent chance to come out on top in the lottery. Philadelphia, which had a league-low 56 points in the worst season of their 40-year history, own the second pick followed by Phoenix, Los Angeles and Washington. Edmonton is sixth before Columbus, Boston, St. Louis and Florida.

CHERRY PICKED

Don Cherry, who has been a fixture on CBC's ''Hockey Night In Canada' telecasts for more than 25 years, will make his U.S. broadcasting debut as part of NBC's Stanley Cup playoff telecasts, the network announced Tuesday. Cherry, who coached Boston and the Colorado Rockies, will be teamed with Brett Hull.

PRICE IS RIGHT

Carey Price, the star of Canada's gold-medal world junior team, has signed with the Montreal Canadiens. Price, who is seen as the Canadiens' goaltender of the future, signed a three-year contract, the NHL club announced Tuesday. Financial terms were not disclosed. Price was assigned to the AHL's Hamilton Bulldogs

SPEAKING

''In the States, they wanted me to go on one time in Pittsburgh. Jaromir Jagr, it was when he had long hair and he was with Mario Lemieux and I said, 'There's Mario and his daughter.' It didn't go over too good. That was my last time in the States.'' - Don Cherry, who will make his U.S. broadcasting debut as part of NBC's Stanley Cup playoff telecasts. Cherry has been a fixture on CBC's ''Hockey Night In Canada' telecasts for more than 25 years.
