The 31 selections of the first round


The first round of the 2020 NHL Draft has come to an end. After a four-month delay due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the teams with the round 1 selections have made their pick virtually for the very first time.

As expected, Alexis Lafreniere was selected first overall by the New York Rangers, followed by the Los Angeles Kings taking Quinton Byfield at No.2. The Ottawa Senators had two picks in the top five and went with Tim Stutzle and Jake Sanderson and got a little help from Peril! host Alex Trebek.
