The NHL informed the Canadiens on Wednesday that the Entry Draft that had been scheduled for June 26-27 at the Bell Centre will be postponed to an alternate date and venue as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“While today’s news is disappointing for fans of hockey in general and those here in Montreal in particular, this is the right decision to make under the circumstances,” France Margaret Belanger, executive vice-president and chief commercial officer for Groupe CH, said in a news release. “I’m confident that the league will propose an alternative that will be in the best interest of all hockey fans.”
The Canadiens currently hold 14 picks for the draft, including one in the first round, three in the second round, two in the third round and three in the fourth round.
Alexis Lafrenière, a left-winger with the Rimouski Océanic, is the top-rated prospect for the draft and is expected to be selected with the No. 1 overall pick. The 18-year-old posted 35-77-112 totals in 52 games this season with the Océanic.
