It may not be the most glamorous process you've ever seen but the fact that we even get to take a look behind the scenes at the National Hockey League's Draft Lottery is pretty cool.

Cameras were rolling when the four numbers were drawn that would eventually lead the NHL to name the Toronto Maple Leafs as the recipients of the number one overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft.

It was a small crew of men who validated the drawing in old school fashion, with pen and paper, a process that was overseen by commissioner Gary Bettman himself who announced the Leafs as the winner as soon as it was confirmed.
