  • NHL and team executives sharing ideas for adjusting the draft lottery

The league said the location, timing and format of the draft and the draft lottery (which was to have taken place on April 9) will be announced when details are finalized.

The scouting combine, set for June 1-6, has traditionally been the last chance for draft prospects to make impressions on team executives.

The Bruins are expected to have a few players up for some awards - Patrice Bergeron for the Selke, David Pastrnak for the Rocket Richard (and maybe even the Hart), Tuukka Rask for the Vezina - this season, while the 2020 NHL Draft is now projected to go on with the Black and Gold possessing all but their first-round and fourth-round picks.

While the Scouting Combine might be inessential to the season and draft, the NHL will need to go through the process of selecting amateur players at some point, and the expectation should be that the league hands out awards as well.

The Detroit Red Wings had clinched the worst overall record before the league suspended play on March 12.
