Gary Bettman will be addressing this.
5 minutes until Commissioner announcement on @Sportsnet. Most unique part will be explanation of the lottery. There is talk of it being “multi-faceted,” and allows for possibility it may need to be done on more than one occasion if one of the 8 play-in losers gets the pick.— Elliotte Friedman (@FriedgeHNIC) May 26, 2020
NHL Draft Lottery will be on Friday June 26. The Nos. 1, 2 and 3 picks will be up for grabs. Fifteen teams — the seven who are no longer playing plus 8 more currently identified as Teams A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H — will be in the lottery. Same lottery odds as prior years.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) May 26, 2020
