Top Draft Prospects

(#1 ranked prospect Ryan-Nugent Hopkins)

This list should cover most of the first round picks. It includes 27F and 11D. It also specifies the players that are likely to make up the top-10. (Though Beaulieu could sneak in ahead of Bartschi). After the top-10, the remaining prospects are only somewhat in order, with ‘rank’ becoming more arbitrary as you go down the list.

I’ll take an in-depth look at the top-10ish players later this week.
