There was no shortage of drama in the first round of the 2020 draft, with Columbus taking little-known Russian Yegor Chinakhov and Washington getting a potential steal in Hendrix Lapierre, but the first fork in the road came very early.

The whole world knew the New York Rangers would select left winger Alexis Lafreniere with the first pick overall, but the Los Angeles Kings had a real decision on their hands between center Quinton Byfield and German forward Tim Stuetzle. Ultimately, they went with Byfield, the massive pivot from the OHL’s Sudbury Wolves.
