I believe it's true, yes.


Though Pittsburgh wouldn't automatically get the first pick. It would be the same lottery system as this year, with the same percent chance of a lower-placed team getting the #1 pick as this year.


So basically, if no hockey is played next season, next year's draft lottery would be conducted the same way as if a full season was played, and every team finished exactly the same as they did this year.


Er, hope that's not confusing. But with the lottery system, even if the Penguins get the #1 pick this year, there's no guarantee they won't next year, and vice-versa.
