Changes to the NHL Draft Lottery were voted in on Thursday by the league's Board of Governors.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Pierre LeBrun, the league still needs to confer with the National Hockey League Players' Association before they become official.

The league has proposed smoothing or compressing the odds among the 14 non-playoff teams for the 2015 draft and then increasing the number of selections determined by the lottery in 2016.

The NHL's general managers met in New York during the Stanley Cup Final and at that time, Sabres general manager Tim Murray told LeBrun that potential new changes would not take effect in time for next year's highly anticipated 2015 Draft that will feature Connor McDavid.
