    The 2019 NHL Draft is shaping up to be one of the strongest and deepest in recent history. And, with that being said, we thought it'd be a good idea to create a thread within which we can discuss this year's prospect class at large.

    So, if there's a particular player you'd like to talk about and debate regardless of age or league, feel free to do so here. Over the course of the 2018-19 season, we'll also be posting links to our (Prospect Pipeline) NHL Prospect Profiles in order to generate a few talking points.

    To start this thread off, let's take a look at Tobias Björnfot of Djurgardens IF.

    Although he's just 17-years of age, Björnfot has already appeared in the SHL and could force his way into the 2019 NHL Draft's top-10 overall as the current campaign progresses. Although he might not be on the same level as Bowen Byram, he could very well overtake Philip Broberg as the second-best defender available.

    Up next is Thomas Harley of the OHL's Mississauga Steelheads. A smooth and polished skater with an offensive mindset, Harley is quickly developing into a sound two-way defender defined by his confidence and poise with the puck.

    The 2019 NHL Draft features a loaded prospect class, and one that is quickly overshadowing a number of this year's top players. In the OHL in particular, there are a handful of excellent young players who have flown largely under the radar, until now:

    Today we're profiling Albin Grewe of Djurgardens IF in the SuperElit. An incredibly competitive and physical winger, Grewe pairs high-end skill and bruising physicality into a dominant offensive game. Although projected by many to be chosen in the second round of the 2019 NHL Draft, Grewe could easily ascend into the first if able to play with consistency this season.

    Nils Höglander of Rogle BK is a pint-sized power-forward who brings talent and tenacity to the ice on a nightly basis.

    Although just 17-years old, Höglander is already competing and succeeding in the Swedish Hockey League — making him a top 2019 NHL Draft prospect.

    Up next is Kaeden Korczak of the WHL's Kelowna Rockets.

    Of stellar size and strength given his 6-foot-3, 195-pound frame, Korczak is a highly intelligent and competent defender who can play a responsible yet tactile game at both ends of the ice. Although his offensive game remains a work in progress, Korczak boasts immense upside and the ability to be utilized in all situations.

    Meet Spencer Knight of the U.S U18 Team.

    Of impressive size and unparalleled intelligence in-goal, Knight could very well be the first goaltender chosen in the 2019 NHL Draft. In fact, his explosive skill set could see Knight chosen in the opening round of the event -- his game is that strong.

    Exactly. IMO 2018 was stronger, as was 2016 and 2015.

    Then you have 2017 which multiple draft services ranked as terrible, and it looks good now.

    The claims two years out are ridiculous.

    One NHL prospect worth keeping an eye on is Bobby Brink of the USHL's Sioux City Musketeers -- a youngster who has improved drastically over the course of the 2018-19 hockey season and now stands as a potential first-round choice ahead of the 2019 NHL Draft. A purposeful skater who can pass the puck as well as shoot it, Brink brings a stable and consistent game to the ice on a nightly basis and is as lethal as they come in the offensive zone.

    Our latest 2019 NHL Draft profile examines the surging play of London Knights centreman Connor McMichael. Despite beginning the 2018-19 season as a prospect projected to be selected in the second-round, McMichael's explosive and consistent play has lifted him well into the first round -- where the Ajax, Ontario native could be selected within the top-15 overall. A lightning quick skater with hands to match who plays a strong 200-foot game, McMichael could prove to be one of the most under-appreciated prospects available for the upcoming NHL Draft.

    After being placed on waivers by the London Knights earlier this season, Flint Firebirds prospect Vladislav Kolyachonok has developed into a premier two-way defenceman. A fluid skater who loves to rush the puck and generate offensive opportunities, Kolyachonok's ability to dictate the pace of play at both ends of the ice has amplified his stock ahead of the 2019 NHL Draft.
