With the Tampa Bay Lightning officially crowned the 2020 Stanley Cup Champions, the NHL shifts focus towards the last major event of the 2019-20 season — the NHL Entry Draft.

Capping off what was an unprecedented season, the 2020 NHL Entry Draft figures to hold plenty of drama and intrigue. From flashy names like Alexis Lafreniere and Quinton Byfield to potential late-round steals like Marat Khusnutdinov, there are plenty of names that can potentially become impact players in this league for years to come.

Aside from the picks themselves, this year should also feature a bevy of trades and chatter (at least via Zoom chat) between general managers as teams attempt to bolster their roster or clear up cap space before free agency kicks off on Friday. We’ve already heard names like Patrik Laine, Shayne Gostisbehere, Marc-Andre Fleury and Johnny Gaudreau floating around the trade block, and who knows else may be available.

With all that being said, you probably don’t want to miss out on this year’s draft action. So here is how you can watch Round 1 of the NHL Draft on Tuesday night on NBC Sports Network if you’re in the U.S. and how you can watch on Sportsnet if you’re in Canada. Plus, live stream information is provided for those who prefer to watch the 2020 NHL Draft online.
