With many junior leagues shut down throughout the world and playing time being limited for up-and-coming draft prospects due to the pandemic, there is talk of making some changes to the upcoming draft format.

According to Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston, there is talk that the NHL may be considering having a prospect showcase tournament in which 2021 draft prospects from around the world could play in several games in order to showcase their skills.

“They’re looking for ideas for what you do with all these draft-eligible players, many of whom haven’t played at all this season anywhere that NHL teams can see,” Johnston said Saturday during Hockey Night in Canada’s Headlines segment.
