Winnipeg Jets

Phase 2 of 2020 NHL Draft Lottery Set for Monday, August 10th at 5 PM CT

The stage is set for next Monday and could become a lot more relevant for the Jets depending on their play-in series results.

The Jets are focusing their energy on the Flames and game 4 which goes tonight at 9:30 PM CT but if they should fall in either game 4 or game 5 (on Saturday) then they would be one of eight teams in the sweepstakes for the 1st overall pick at the 2020 NHL Draft.

Here is the Release from the NHL:

The National Hockey League announced today that Phase 2 of the 2020 NHL Draft Lottery – which will award the first overall selection in the 2020 NHL Draft – will be conducted at NHL Network’s Secaucus, N.J., studio on Monday, Aug. 10, at 6 p.m. ET.

The event, which will be hosted by NHL Network’s Jamie Hersch and feature an interview with top-ranked North American skater Alexis Lafreniere, will be broadcast live on NBCSN and NHL Network in the U.S. as well as Sportsnet and TVA Sports in Canada.

The eight teams that do not advance from the 2020 Stanley Cup Qualifiers will be eligible to win Phase 2 of the 2020 NHL Draft Lottery. All participants will have the same odds (12.5%) and will be represented in the lottery machine by one ball with their team logo.

The seven teams not selected in Phase 2, in inverse order of their points percentages at the time of the pause in the regular season, will be assigned 2020 NHL Draft positions 9 through 15.

Phase 2 of the 2020 NHL Draft Lottery is being conducted because one of eight placeholders – ‘Team E’ – won the First Draw of Phase 1, which was held on June 26. Team E, in the No. 12 position, had a 2.5-percent chance of being selected.

The Los Angeles Kings won the Second Draw, while the Ottawa Senators (with a position previously acquired in a trade with the San Jose Sharks) won the Third Draw.

The order of selection for the first 15 drafting positions in the First Round, only, of the 2020 NHL Draft currently is:

1. TBD*
2. Los Angeles Kings
3. Ottawa Senators (from SJS)
4. Detroit Red Wings
5. Ottawa Senators
6. Anaheim Ducks
7. New Jersey Devils
8. Buffalo Sabres
9. TBD*
10. TBD*
11. TBD*
12. TBD*
13. TBD*
14. TBD*
15. TBD*

* To be determined by Phase 2 of 2020 NHL Draft Lottery

The remaining 16 selections for the First Round (#16-31) will be determined by the results of the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

This would be the silver lining for fans if the Jets are eliminated from the play-in series.

During #NHLJets Training Camp, it's easy to be Mr. Brightside.

Our next guest on The IC Hockey Show, @mikemcintyrewpg, is hopefully going to Smile Like He Means It, but regardless if we can Read His Mind, he will definitely remain The Man.
