The NHL Combine in Buffalo, NHL Awards in Las Vegas and NHL Draft in Montreal were all postponed Wednesday.
In a release, the NHL adds it is still working on when and how the NHL Draft Lottery will take place.
With the NHL season on pause since March 12, the postponement of these events did not come as a surprise. The league is still working on scenarios of what hockey would look like if it is able to resume this season.
