The 1995 NHL Entry Draft was held at Edmonton Coliseum in Edmonton, Alberta.

Instead, a draft lottery was instituted in which the winner of the lottery could move up a maximum of four spots in the first-round draft order. The Los Angeles Kings won the lottery, and thus moved up four spots from seventh to third. The last-place finishers, the Ottawa Senators did not lose the first overall pick through the lottery and picked Bryan Berard.1995–96 Philadelphia Flyers season
