At tonight’s 2020 NHL Draft Lottery, one of the qualification placeholders won a lottery. As a result, all of the qualification-round losers will participate in a Phase 2 lottery once the play-ins have been completed.

The Montreal Canadiens now have a chance at a top-three pick. We’ll post more information as it becomes available.
