NHL Draft 2020: What is the draft order for Rounds 1-7?

With the Stanley Cup handed off to its new caretakers in Tampa, the hockey world now sets its sights on the next generation of NHL talent.

From Oct. 6-7, more than 200 players will be selected by the 31 NHL teams looking for the next great player to fill their lineups. While there are 217 spots for selections, No. 49 has been forfeited by the Coyotes for a violating the NHL Combine testing policy.

Although the No. 1 overall pick is practically solidified (Alexis Lafreniere), the rest of the draft order is anyone’s guess. 

Here is the complete order for all seven rounds:
