Prospects

All about the young players preparing to enter the NHL.

PROSPECT RANKING WRITE-UP 1. LW William EklundDjurgårdens IF, SHL [5’10”. 172lbs. Born on October 12, 2002.] There isn’t a unanimous #1 in this draft, but Eklund is the most elite player available. He’s one of the best scorers in the draft. Just really good shot selection. His sharp offensive awareness makes him a shrewd playmaker as well. He’s a player that is constantly generating offense. He can create his own shot and opportunities for his linemates out of nothing. When Eklund is on the...

Hi everyone, I always remember that I am French language first, and to write these words it is difficult for me, so be indulgent How I proceed for my list: I'm little bit different from other scout. A lot of scout will look habit of each player(How he play defensively, short shift, hard, go to the net etc) and it a very big big part of the game. You want these info when you make a selection but these thing its not my thing. I'm not as good as other to evaluate that. I'm more concentrated on...

Alexis Lafrenière LW – 6’1, 194 lbs What can we say about Lafrenière that hasn’t already been said? He is an elite prospect with a similar playing style to Jonathan Huberdeau who possesses elite skill,...
I know I said it was final when I last posted my ranking a month-and-a-half ago, but I couldn't help but continue to watch these prospects. My rankings have changed a fair bit since then, and I also decided to try something new with this set of rankings: I gave each prospect a number grade and a letter grade. The number grade, 10 being the highest possible, is the prospect's ceiling, which I describe. The letter grade, A being the highest, is how likely they are to reach that ceiling....
PROSPECT RANKING WRITE-UP 1. LW Alexis Lafrenière Rimouski Océanic, QMJHL [6’1”. 192lbs. Born on October 11, 2001.] Strong and fast playmaker. Always creating chances whenever he’s on the ice. Lafrenière is a playmaking power forward that plays with grit. He’s not a runaway McDavid level talent, but still worthy of going 1st overall. He’s ready for the NHL. What more needs to be said about him? Lafrenière has been the consensus top pick for quite some time, and I see no reason to dispute...
1. Alexis Lafreniere - The easiest ranking in my list. His blend of smarts, skill, speed, shot, and work-ethic is very rare. I don't think his potential is that much higher than the players than those ranked from 2-6, but I think he's almost a guarantee to hit his upside. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 2. Tim Stutzle - The gap between the players in this tier are razor-thin. That said, Stutzle's skating and vision...
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...

Regular season has concluded in Russian leagues, so it might make sense to start looking at the prospects and RFAs, who might decide to move to NA this offseason. And by the offseason I mean mostly the time after the 30th of April, as the KHL has changed the rules regarding contract terminations that allowed Gavrikov and Gusev to go overseas early and burn down a year of the ELC. Although I should note that every rule has an exception, as Blackhawks' prospect Ivan Nalimov has already signed...

I know its early and this will change and get longer and longer as the season goes on but for now these are my top 55 guys I've watched and read up on of about 75. The other 20 I didn't like enough to put in this ranking yet as I don't see them going in the first three rounds come draft day. It is OHL heavy as a) it's a very strong OHL class and b) I have watched the OHL the most. In my opinion this will be one of the deepest classes in recent memory, especially at the top. 1Alexis...
Let's start discussing the rankings for 2021. IMO Stankoven has all the tools to be the 1st overall pick ; Logan is a very fast skater, strong edges, quick hands, heavy wrist shot, and an extremely hard worker. Stankoven is comparable to Nathan MacKinnon with his amazing puck skills at high speed. Let's dissect this you animals.:popcorn: 1. Logan Stankoven, C (WHL) 2. Aatu Raty, LW (Finland) 3. Matthew Beniers, C (NTDP) 4. Luke Hughes, D (NTDP) 5. Zach L'Heureux, F (QMJHL) 6. Carson...
Criteria: -Under 27 years old -Maximum 25 NHL GP 2018 Top 150 NHL Affiliated Prospects: [URL="https://hfboards.mandatory.com/threads/tryamkins-pre-season-top-150-nhl-affiliated-prospects.2537947/"]Tryamkin's Pre-Season Top 150 NHL Affiliated Prospects[/URL] Off of my own viewings, here's my long awaited top 250 NHL affiliated prospect rankings. Before commenting, you could say for example; hey why is Pavel Dorofeyev ahead of my favorite prospect from my favorite team? He was drafted in the 3rd round! My 2019 draft prospect rankings are also linked with...
I told myself it would be unfair to criticize others in their attempts to make a top 50 NHL prospect list if I did not try to do it myself, so there it is! It is based, like for most people here, on my limited viewings of the players online and my incredible ability to statwatch on the interwebs… Enjoy! 1. Jack Hughes (NJ) 2. Kaapo Kakko (NYR) 3. Cale Makar (COL) 4. Alex Turcotte (LA) 5. Vitali Kravtsov (NYR) 6. Bowen Byram (COL) 7. Quinton Hughes (VAN) 8. Cody Glass (VEG) 9. Erik...
Here are the top-100 NHL prospects today. Top-25 by position below Criteria: Each player had to be under-25, selected in an NHL draft (or signed by NHL club) and played less than 1/2 season at NHL level. Positions: Keep in mind that some of the positions change (ie, C to wing, RW to LW). I had to pick one for the positional lists, so don't kill me on that. Methodology: I use a 0-100 scale to rate players. It is largely based on combination of factors, mostly on (a) highest peak...
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:...
These are my top 217 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 without considering need, tendencies, etc. Please feel free to comment(I may not have seen every player - and I also don't get to watch every player multiple times, so if they have a poor game when I see them, it's unlikely they'll have a high...
