The Carolina Hurricanes are a professional ice hockey franchise based in Raleigh, North Carolina. They play in the Southeast Division of the Eastern Conference in the National Hockey League (NHL). The franchise was founded in 1971 as the New England Whalers, and relocated to North Carolina in 1997. Since arriving in North Carolina, the Hurricanes have drafted 90 players. The 2008 draft was the 12th in which Hurricanes participated.

The NHL Entry Draft is held each June, allowing teams to select players who have turned 18 years old by September 15 in the year the draft is held. The draft order is determined by the previous season's order of finish, with non-playoff teams drafting first, followed by the teams that made the playoffs, with the specific order determined by the number of points earned by each team.[1] The NHL holds a weighted lottery for the 14 non-playoff teams, allowing the winner to move up a maximum of four positions in the entry draft.[2] The team with the fewest points has the best chance of winning the lottery, with each successive team given a lower chance of moving up in the draft.[1] The Flames have never won the lottery.[3] Between 1986 and 1994, the NHL also held a Supplemental Draft for players in American colleges.[4]

Carolina's first draft pick was Nikos Tselios, taken 22nd overall in the 1997 NHL Entry Draft. The highest that Carolina has drafted is second overall. They selected Eric Staal in 2003. Zero picks went on to play over 1,000 NHL games. No players have been elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame.
