NHL to move up start of 2020 draft to October 6th and 7th, free agency to October 9th

Here’s some pertinent NHL offseason event information from The Athletic’s Corey Pronman and TSN’s Frank Seravalli:

Believe the 2020 NHL Draft will be moved up to October 6 and 7, from the original tentative dates of October 9 and 10.— Corey Pronman (@coreypronman) September 8, 2020

Adjust your calendars: #NHLDraft scheduled for Oct. 6-7, #FreeAgentFrenzy scheduled for Oct. 9.— Frank Seravalli (@frank_seravalli) September 8, 2020

Beginning of free agency (Oct. 9) fell on the same day as Day 1 of the draft, so one or the other had to be moved. As @coreypronman said, Oct. 6 and 7 it is. Evening of the 6th, during the day on the 7th. Free agency on the 9th. https://t.co/Rg1a2P3VNF— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) September 8, 2020
