NHL draft lottery, including No. 1 pick, resumes Monday

The No. 1 overall pick will be awarded when the 2020 NHL Draft Lottery resumes Monday at 6 p.m. ET.

The league said Thursday that Phase 2 of the lottery will take place at NHL Network studios in Secaucus, N.J.

The eight teams that do not advance from the current 2020 Stanley Cup qualifiers each will have a 12.5 per cent chance to claim the top pick.

The seven teams whose ping-pong balls are not drawn for the No. 1 pick on Monday will be placed in the ninth through 15th draft positions, based on the inverse order of their points percentages at the time the regular season was paused due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
