Draft picks officially set for Calgary Flames in 2020 NHL draft

The draft order has been set, and the Calgary Flames officially know where they’ll be picking.

Calgary’s first pick comes in the first round, 19th overall with their second coming in round two, 50th overall.

Things get hairy in the third round. The Flames own 81st overall, and may get the 76th overall selection from the Edmonton Oilers from the Milan Lucic deal. If Edmonton doesn’t give their 2020 3rd round pick, the Flames will receive the Oilers’ 2021 3rd round pick. Either way, the Flames have to forfeit a third-round pick to Chicago in the Erik Gustafsson trade.

Their last pick comes 205th overall in the 7th round.
