Prospects

All about the young players preparing to enter the NHL.

A bit late to the party this time, but let's start the yearly thread, just because. A bit of an input from me: Top 20 + 18 other interesting names + 12 overagers, that's 50 total, looks fine for a start. 1. RW/LW Vasiliy Podkolzin (6'1", 190 lbs; SKA-1946 St. Petersburg, MHL) Not sure if I need to comment a lot here — Podkolzin has been showing some great things for quite some time now. And not just some flashy highlight reel stuff, but also quite an impressive 200ft game. 2. LHD Artemiy...
This draft is very talented...Charles Alexis Legault is a guy who could have went top 5 this year, he is hurt for the year and some are saying it could be career ending I personally do not know how bad the injury is right now but I put him 2nd round because some team is going to take him.
After a long year, it's finally time for my annual draft rankings. In order to avoid a nearly 10,000 word OP, I've included scouting reports for my top 31 on this post and the rest I've done can be viewed at my website at 2019 NHL Draft Final Rankings I've had at least one viewing of each of the players on this list throughout the year. Thanks for the continued support, here's my previous annual rankings for laughs - 2018 Final Rankings:...

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 1. Alexis Lafreniere - The easiest ranking in my list. His blend of smarts, skill, speed, shot, and work-ethic is very rare. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 2. Tim Stutzle - The gap between the players in this tier are razor-thin. That said, Stutzle's skating and vision along with the fact that he's proven...
Prospect rankings for the 2018 NHL Draft.
My annual preview of draft-eligible Russian prospects has arrived. At the beginning of the season I made a statement that this is a "boom or bust" year and actually I think I rarely have been as precise as that time.
September sees the start of leagues and the start of hockey again! Thankfully I've gotten my list in better order to start the season than the last few years. Defensemen have had their handedness added for convenience. 1. C Jack Hughes 2. RW Kaapo Kakko 3. C Alex Turcotte 4. LW Alex Newhook 5. C Dylan Cozens 6. C Kirby Dach 7. LD Bowen Byram 8. C Trevor Zegras 9. RW Vasili Podkolzin 10. LD Phillip Broberg 11. LW Peyton Krebs 12. C Raphae Lavoie 13. LW Danil Gutik 14. LD Matthew Robertson 15....

Final 2019 NHL Mock Draft 1. New Jersey Devils: Jack Hughes Although Kakko put on quite a show at the worlds, and played remarkable against men this season, the Devils still prefer Hughes to Kakko. Personally, Kakko is my choice and I could very well see Kakko going #1, but New Jersey has been dropping major hints with their social media and management. 2. New York Rangers: Kaapo Kakko Rangers make the easiest pick of the draft, even more so than #1, Kakko will fit in very nicely and come...
Here's my second to last draft rankings before the 2020 NHL draft. Skaters only. I'll keep it to the first 93 on the OP and if you have interest in checking out the rest check out my website for the rest; 2020 March Draft Rankings LW Alexis Lafreniere - Rimouski Oceanic, QMJHL C Quinton Byfield - Sudbury Wolves, OHL C Anton Lundell - HIFK, Liiga C/LW Tim Stutzle - Adler Mannheim, DEL RW Lucas Raymond - Frolunda, SHL LW Alexander Holtz - Djurgarden, SHL C Marco Rossi - Ottawa 67’s, OHL RD...
It's unusual to write the annual write-up on Russian draft-eligible prospects in the situation we all are in: a lot of uncertainties in the world of hockey (and not only hockey) and, obviously, in terms of the draft too, as we don't even know for sure when and how it will be held. No U18 WJC, no conclusion in league play-offs, no combine, no U20 NT camp — all of that makes it pretty complicated, as for me it's always been important to evaluate a prospect outside of his league and "comfort...
3 months away from draft time! This is when it starts to get exciting folks. The next edition should be May, and should also come with a mock draft post lottery! As always, let me know what you think, and who you think should be higher, after all, we’re all different people and therefore see different things. 1. D Rasmus Dahlin 2. LW/RW Andrei Svechnikov 3. LW/RW Filip Zadina 4. RW Oliver Wahlstrom 5. D Adam Boqvist 6. D Quinn Hughes 7. D Noah Dobson 8. D Evan Bouchard 9. LW Brady...

As I start to watch more games and evaluate more prospects, the lists will grow in size, much like previous years. This list will not be pinpoint accurate as I'm only in the beginning stages, so suggest some players you think I should watch more of! 1. C Jack Hughes 2. RW Kaapo Kakko 3. C Alex Turcotte 4. LW Alex Newhook 5. C Kirby Dach 6. C Dylan Cozens 7. D Bowen Byram 8. C Raphael Lavoie 9. D Matthew Robertson 10. C Ryan Suzuki 11. D Victor Soderstrom 12. LW Maxim Cajkovic 13. C Trevor...
At this point last year, my rankings were only 100 players long, so the progression in terms of evening out my viewings has been good. As always, open to any questions or comments.

These are my top 100 rankings. They are my own. I watch a lot of hockey. I read a lot(and I have certain people's opinions that I take into account), but these rankings are from my own observations. This is the order I would draft these guys in(as of the end of February) I just finished putting this together, so I will update at the conclusion of the Memorial Cup. Please feel free to comment....especially if you see a glaring omission(I may not have seen every player - and I also don't get...
