No. 1 Pick In NHL Draft Lottery Still Up For Grabs 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Jun 27, 2020 5:20 am

Alexis Lafreniere was supposed to walk on stage Friday night in Montreal as the top pick in the NHL draft.

After the COVID-19 pandemic paused the hockey season and postponed that possibility, Lafreniere was supposed to find out Friday night where he\'d be going when the league held its draft lottery. Instead, he\'ll have to wait.

Chaos reigned at the NHL draft lottery, with the No. 1 pick still up for grabs in a second lottery drawing among the eight teams that lose in the qualifying round of the playoffs -- if play resumes.
