Detroit Red Wings general manager Steve Yzerman believes the 2021 NHL Draft should be delayed in order to give the eligible prospects who've had their seasons delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic an opportunity to play.

"I would hope they push it back, and give us a chance to watch these kids and give these kids a chance to play and put their best foot forward leading up to the draft," Yzerman said Monday, according to Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press.
