Two NHL Draft in Montreal in 2022?

Now that the 2020-2021 National Hockey League (NHL) season is underway, the Bettman Circuit is now working on its next draft.

Recruiters were hardly able to assess the hopes of the 2021 vintage, since they have played few – or no – matches due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to the Sportsnet network, several stakeholders would like the auction to be postponed to December 2021 or January 2022. The possibility of holding two repechage in June 2022 was also discussed. It is in Montreal that the event must take place, since the 2020 draft could not be held in the Quebec metropolis.

If ever the NHL chooses this option, the two auctions could take place a few days apart. This is what journalist Elliotte Friedman proposed in his text on Tuesday.

For this to become a reality, the NHL Players Association will have to give its approval.
