Nobody Knows Who has the Number One Pick!

With the right to draft top prospect Alexis Lafreniere, a forward, with the first overall pick of the 2020 NHL Draft, the NHL would hold the first part of the NHL Draft Lottery.

 

For more information as to how Part One will work, please read here.

 

First Overall Goes to…

Nobody knows because it’s going to a team that’s in the 2020 Stanley Cup Tournament.

 

The official Draft order is as follows:

1. Place Holder

2.  Los Angeles Kings

3. Ottawa Senators via SJ

4. Detroit Red Wings

5. Ottawa Senators

6. Anaheim Ducks

7. New Jersey Devils

8. Buffalo Sabres

 

So What Does This Mean?

So what this means is that once the Play In has been completed and we know which teams didn’t make it to the first round of the Stanley Cup Tournament there will be another Draft Lottery between those teams to decide who will select first overall, and boy does this have a massive odor to it.
