The QMJHL to hold its 2020 Draft Lottery tomorrow

The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League will hold its Draft Lottery tomorrow (Wednesday, May 6th) at 2:00 PM (ET) / 3:00 PM (AT) on the league’s YouTube Channel. The draw will determine the order for the first five selections of the 2020 Entry Draft that will take place on YouTube on Friday, June 5, 2020.

The lottery will be supervised by an independent third party. The probabilities of winning the draw are based by a team’s position in the overall standings as follows:

  • 18th position – Gatineau (from Bathurst) – 9 balls – 43%
  • 17th position – Gatineau (from Halifax) – 6 balls – 28%
  • 16th position – Gatineau – 3 balls – 14%
  • 15th position – Saint John (from Baie-Comeau) – 2 balls – 10%
  • 14th position – Quebec City – 1 ball – 5%

Once a team is drawn, they are removed from the process. This process is repeated following each draw. However, if the Gatineau Olympiques (draft pick from Bathurst) are not picked first or second, they will automatically be awarded the third overall selection. Moreover, the Gatineau Olympiques (draft pick from Halifax) cannot pick later than fourth overall due to their seventeenth place finish.
