Edmonton has until the start of the third round in the 2020 NHL draft to decide which pick it will send to Calgary.
When the trade was confirmed last July, Calgary was set to receive a conditional third-round pick in the 2020 draft, with Edmonton retaining 12.5 per cent of Lucic’s remaining contract.
The Maple Leafs would owe the Kings a 2021 second-round pick if they win their qualifying-round series against the Columbus Blue Jackets, and Jack Campbell gets two or more wins, or if they re-sign Kyle Clifford for next season.
In a third, more complicated ruling, the NHL ironed out the trade between the Carolina Hurricanes and New Jersey Devils involving Sami Vatanen — who was acquired from the Devils for defenceman Fredrik Claesson, forward prospect Janne Kuokkanen and conditional fourth-round pick in the 2020 NHL Draft.
That fourth-round pick can change in three ways, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman:
• If Carolina beats the New York Rangers, and Vatanen plays in 70 per cent of the Hurricane’s playoff games (not including the play-in round), New Jersey gets Carolina’s third-round pick this year.
• If Vatanen plays in less than 70 per cent of Carolina’s playoff games, then the pick is dependent on how many appearances Vatanen makes against the Rangers. If he appears twice and Carolina wins the series, New Jersey gets Carolina’s fourth rounder this year. If he appears twice and the Rangers win, the Hurricanes get the choice of a fourth-round pick this year or next year. If he doesn’t play twice against the Rangers, no pick goes to New Jersey.
