Complete 2020 NHL draft order, including Flyers' 7 picks


After a long wait with the unprecedented stoppage because of the coronavirus pandemic, the 2020 NHL draft has now quickly approached.

The first round will be held Tuesday, Oct. 6, at 7 p.m. ET, while Rounds 2-7 follow on Wednesday, Oct. 7, starting at 11:30 a.m. ET. You can watch the first round of the draft on NBCSN.

The draft will be held virtually.

With the first overall selection, the Rangers are expected to draft consensus No. 1 pick Alexis Lafreniere.

The Flyers hold seven picks and their first-round selection comes at No. 23 overall. The club has a first, second, fourth, fifth, sixth and two seventh-rounders (more here).

"I think every year, the first round we typically go with the best player," Flyers assistant general manager Brent Flahr said Tuesday in a video interview. "After that, sometimes you go with maybe more positional needs if the players are equal.

"Obviously with our depth chart, you can take a look at it: left defense, we have some players coming. Right-shot defensemen, we’re getting a little thinner, we can maybe address that if it makes sense. Sometimes there’s just not players available when you're picking. Obviously up front, scoring would be something to address but it’s something you'd like to address every year, I don’t think it changes much.

"We’ll see how it plays out. We have guys targeted at each tier of the draft and we’ll try to do the best we can based on that."
