2000 NHL Waiver Draft

The 2000 NHL Waiver Draft was held September 29. The expansion Minnesota Wild and Columbus Blue Jackets were given the first two choices in the draft order and participated with the non-playoff teams in the first round. This year the teams would lose a maximum of only player each, as had been the case in 1992.

This was the second time in three waiver drafts that Zdeno Ciger was chosen with the first pick. He never played a game for the Predators nor the Wild. In 2001 he signed as a free agent with the Lightning.
