Some big news dropped from TSN’s Pierre LeBrun: Former Golden Knights coach Gerard Gallant has interviewed for the Devils coaching job. LeBrun also said Alain Nasreddine is a legitimate candidate and that Tom Fitzgerald has spoken to a few candidates for the job. [TSN] [The Athletic ($)]

One option the NHL is looking at:
Among the many possibilities Bill Daly says the NHL has discussed for the draft, one is to hold the draft in June before the potential season resuming. There are some obvious complications with that, draft order and conditional picks, etc, but it’s being discussed as an option— Pierre LeBrun (@PierreVLeBrun) April 21, 2020
Elliotte Friedman fleshes out that idea here and, on a separate note, says that the neutral-site idea the league was looking at is a no-go. Instead, the league is considering a one-city-per-divison idea, he says. [Sportsnet]
