The New York Rangers finally have some clarity on their other first-round draft selection, which was acquired from the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for Brady Skjei. With the Hurricanes losing to the Boston Bruins in the first round of the playoffs, the Rangers needed some help from the lower seeded teams remaining in the playoffs.

After several weeks of question marks, the only two lower seeded teams to prevail in the second round were the New York Islanders and Dallas Stars. As a result, the Rangers bump up two spots in the draft order, and will be selecting 22nd overall in the 2020 NHL Draft. The draft is currently scheduled for Oct. 9-10, and will be conducted virtually rather than in Montreal.

With the Conference finalists officially set in stone, the updated draft order is as follows:

  1. New York Rangers
  2. Los Angeles Kings
  3. Ottawa Senators (via San Jose)
  4. Detroit Red Wings
  5. Ottawa Senators
  6. Anaheim Ducks
  7. New Jersey Devils
  8. Buffalo Sabres
  9. Minnesota Wild
  10. Winnipeg Jets
  11. Nashville Predators
  12. Florida Panthers
  13. Carolina Hurricanes (via Toronto)
  14. Edmonton Oilers
  15. Toronto Maple Leafs (via Pittsburgh)
  16. Montreal Canadiens
  17. Chicago Blackhawks
  18. New Jersey Devils (via Arizona)
  19. Calgary Flames
  20. New Jersey Devils (via Vancouver)
  21. Columbus Blue Jackets
  22. New York Rangers (via Carolina)
  23. Philadelphia Flyers
  24. Colorado Avalanche
  25. Washington Capitals
  26. St. Louis Blues
  27. Anaheim Ducks (via Boston)
  28. Conference Final loser
  29. Conference Final loser
  30. Stanley Cup finalist
  31. Stanley Cup winner
