Rangers win NHL draft lottery, shot at Lafreniere with No. 1 pick
The New York Rangers won the second phase of the NHL draft lottery, giving them a shot at selecting Alexis Lafreniere.
The Rangers were among eight teams that lost in the qualifying round of the playoffs with a chance to claim quite a consolation prize Monday night. The Rangers have the No. 1 overall pick for the first time since 1965 when they selected Andre Veilleux.
The league was forced to make a lot of changes after the COVID-19 pandemic paused the season. The league’s bottom seven teams ended up not winning the first phase of the lottery in June.
