The NHL announced Thursday that it will move forward with the final phase of its draft lottery on Monday, Aug. 10 at 6 p.m. ET.

In the initial draft lottery in June, a placeholder team won the first overall selection. The second phase of the lottery will be a draw involving the eight teams that are eliminated during the qualifying play-in round to determine which team gets the top pick.

The only team that has been eliminated from the qualifying round as of Thursday morning is the New York Rangers.

Each team will have an equal 12.5% chance at the No. 1 selection.

The seven teams that do not win the top pick will be assigned 2020 NHL Draft positions 9-15 in inverse order of their points percentages at the time the regular season was paused.

The projected top pick of the draft is QMJHL phenom Alexis Lafreniere.
