According to Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports, the draft lottery will take place on June 26th.
This announcement means the league would base the lottery off of current standings considering the playoffs won’t be completed at that date. This is great news for a team like Montreal who would receive a top ten pick in the draft and still qualify for a 24 team playoff. In such a strong draft, it would be a big disappointment for a weaker team to lose a high pick due to the new format.
More information will be released as it becomes available.
