2020 NHL draft rankings: Top 100 prospects in the class from Chris Peters

The 2020 NHL draft got one small baby step closer with the first lottery drawing. No, we still don't know who will be drafting No. 1 overall, but the team order for pick Nos. 2-8 is at least set.

It has been a much different process throughout. As 24 NHL teams gear up for a postseason return to play after the coronavirus pandemic forced a stoppage in March, seven others are already looking forward to the draft -- which still lacks a date. The prep work has no doubt been more difficult this season, as scouts have neither a full prospect season of evaluation nor combine workouts.
