With the 2020 Stanley Cup Conference Finals now underway, the Flames 2020 NHL Draft selection numbers have been set.
Calgary currently holds six picks this year, with the possibility of a seventh being added due to the stipulations on the Milan Lucic - James Neal trade with the Edmonton Oilers.
The draft is scheduled to be held virtually on Oct. 6 and 7.
First Round: 19th overall
Second Round: 50th overall*
Third Round: No pick**
Fourth Round: 96th overall***
Fifth Round: 143rd overall
Sixth Round: 174th overall
Seventh Round: 205th overall
* The Arizona Coyotes hold the 49th pick and will forfeit that selection as per the sanctions handed out by the NHL earlier this year. More details can be found HERE.
** The Flames may acquire the Oilers 2020 third round pick after the NHL ruled Edmonton will transfer their own third round pick in either the 2020 or 2021 NHL Draft to Calgary. The Oilers have until the beginning of the third round in the 2020 NHL Draft to make the decision on which year the pick will be transferred. Currently, the Oilers have the 76th overall selection in this round. In addition, the Flames have sent their earliest third round pick to the Chicago Blackhawks as a part of the trade that brought defenceman Erik Gustafsson to Calgary, which is currently the 81st overall pick this year, so if the Oilers opt to keep their pick this year, that is the pick that will go to Chicago.
*** The Flames acquired the 96th overall selection from the Buffalo Sabres in the Michael Frolik trade. This is well-traveled pick, with the Sabres acquiring it from the Montreal Canadiens in the Marco Scandella trade. Prior to that, the Canadiens acquired it from the San Jose Sharks in a trade that involved swapping picks. The Flames' original fourth round pick was sent to the LA Kings in the Oscar Fantenberg trade in the 2018-19 season.
