2020 NHL Draft Results

The 2020 NHL draft was held on October 6, 2020 for the first time ever remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was originally to be held in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Forward Alexis Lafreniere was selected #1 overall by the New York Rangers. The Los Angeles Kings selected forward Quinton Byfield #2 overall.

The best player out of the 2020 NHL entry draft is still up in the air, will Lafreniere turn into a superstar or be a bust like 2012 #1 NHL draft pick Nail Yakupov?
