The NHL's proposed draft lottery changes received formal approval from the Board of Governors after a vote on Tuesday, according to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun.

Starting this year, only the top two spots in the draft will be determined by the lottery, down from the previous number of three.

Starting in 2022, a team can move up a maximum of 10 spots, making only 11 of the 16 teams who miss the playoffs eligible for the first overall pick.
