Games aren't the only events on the NHL calendar up in the air.

The NHL announced Thursday it has postponed the 2020 draft, scouting combine and its annual awards due to the ongoing uncertainty resulting from the coronavirus pandemic.

Originally, the combine was scheduled for June 1-6 in Buffalo, the awards show June 18 in Las Vegas and the draft June 26-27 in Montreal. The location, timing and format of the draft – and draft lottery – will be revealed when details are finalized.

Since 2009, Las Vegas has hosted the NHL Awards and the league said it looks forward to returning to Las Vegas in the future.

On March 12, the NHL paused its season amid the global outbreak of COVID-19 and it remains unclear how or when the league might resume play despite that being the NHL’s hope.
