The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League Commissioner’s Office wants to apologize to its fans, players and media who were watching the 2020 QMJHL Entry Draft Lottery on the League’s YouTube channel this afternoon.
The main objective was to offer the best possible broadcast to those who were watching the live draw. The three General Managers involved in the lottery were participating in a Skype conference with the QMJHL Director of Communications in order to get instant reactions and analysis. However, we faced technical issues that forced us to abandon the production. Thereafter, we issued a press release that contained the results, and we shared it on our website and social media channels a few minutes later.
The lottery determined the order of the first five selections for the entry draft that will take place on YouTube on Friday, June 5, 2020. Here is the final order:
- Gatineau Olympiques (from Halifax)
- Gatineau Olympiques (from Acadie-Bathurst)
- Saint John Sea Dogs (from Baie-Comeau)
- Gatineau Olympiques
- Quebec Remparts
