The draft lottery determined the first 15 picks. Selections 16-27 belong to teams that lost in the first two rounds of the playoffs, in inverse order of the clubs' regular-season points percentage.

The No. 28 and 29 picks have been given to the teams that were knocked out in the conference finals (though the New York Islanders' selection belongs to the Ottawa Senators), again in inverse order of the points percentage during the regular season. The 30th and 31st overall selections will go to the Stanley Cup Final loser and winner, respectively.

Unlike previous years, the NHL didn't take division winners into account. As a result, the Washington Capitals and Colorado Avalanche were flipped at No. 24 and 25.

In rounds two through seven, selections one to seven go to teams that didn't qualify for the 24-team return-to-play format, and Nos. 8 through 15 belong to clubs that were bounced out of the qualifying round. All 15 of those picks over the final six rounds are slotted in inverse order based on regular-season points percentage.

The Arizona Coyotes forfeited the 49th overall pick and their 2021 first-rounder after violating the NHL's combine testing policy during the 2019-20 campaign.

View the order for all seven rounds here. The draft will be conducted over video conferencing on Oct. 6 and 7.
