Ottawa Senators hoping for some good luck entering the NHL Draft Lottery

Following the 2020 NHL Draft Lottery, where the Detroit Red Wings learned they will be selecting No. 4 in this year's draft, general manager Steve Yzerman spoke to the media via a conference call.

There will be a second lottery (or Phase 2) to determine which team wins the right to the No. 1 overall selection - and in all likelihood Lafreniere - once the play-in round is completed as part of the NHL's return-to-play plan.

The NHL held eight placeholder spots in the lottery for teams competing in the league's resume to play.

Each of the eliminated teams will have a 12.5 percent chance of winning the No. 1 pick.

After the league-worst Detroit Red Wings dropped to fourth, the Los Angeles Kings got the second pick, and the Ottawa Senators ended up with Nos.

Seven teams who missed out on the league's play resume were in the lottery, along with eight placeholders for teams that will be eliminated.

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

Meanwhile, Sidney Crosby's Pittsburgh Penguins or Connor McDavid's Edmonton Oilers could get lucky again or Taylor Hall could bring his lottery luck to a third franchise.

Lafreniere - a winger for the Rimouski Oceanic and NHL Central Scouting's top-ranked North American skater - is expected to go first overall when the draft is eventually held at a later date.

The draft lottery is usually held in April at the conclusion of the regular season and before the playoffs, but was pushed back because of the pandemic before the National Hockey League came up with a new format last month. "We can sit here today and feel sorry for ourselves if we want". The five other teams not advancing past the qualifying round will have the next six picks. The Sharks are in the same company after not being in contention this season and losing out on the chance to take center Quinton Byfield second.

The Anaheim Ducks wound up with the sixth pick, New Jersey Devils the seventh and Buffalo Sabres the eighth. The rest of the first round will be determined by the results of the playoffs.
