A Team To Be Named Later Will Draft First In The NHL Draft

via TSN,

The team that will pick first in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft will be determined at a later date after a placeholder won the first phase of the Draft Lottery on Friday night.

The Ottawa Senators will select third and fifth in the draft.

The Senators had the best chance of winning the lottery. They held the second-best chance with their own spot in the lottery at 13.5 per cent. They also held the San Jose Sharks pick at 11.5 per cent after acquiring the selection in a trade that sent defenceman Erik Karlsson to the Bay Area. That put the Senators chances at 25 per cent.

The Detroit Red Wings finished with a league-worst .275 points percentage and had the next best chance at winning the first-overall pick with an 18.5 per cent. Detroit was bumped down the maximum three spots to 4th.
