Question regarding NHL draft this year

Was just wondering what is the process for determining the team selection for NHL draft this year assuming that the entire year is lost due to a lock out?

(sorry if this question has already been asked in this forum)

Wikipedia article


As a lockout cancelled the games of the 2004–05 NHL season, the draft order was determined by lottery on July 22, 2005. Teams were assigned 1 to 3 balls based on their playoff appearances and first overall draft picks from the past three years. According to the draft order, the selection worked its way up to 30 as usual; then instead of repeating the order as in past years, the draft "snaked" back down to the team with the first pick. Therefore the team with the first pick overall would not pick again until the 60th pick. The team with the 30th pick would also get the 31st pick. The new CBA reduced the draft to seven rounds in length, compared to nine rounds in years past

Of course, this is only if the NHL decides to adapt the same rules as they had in 2005. Once a CBA is settled, some rules could be different.

How many times do people have to ask this question before we sticky the main thread?
