NHL Draft: Top 100 Prospects
By Eddy Jones
With the Ducks season over I’ve shifted my focus to the draft. In the first of two articles, I created a list of my Top 100 draft eligible prospects. Goalies were excluded from the rankings as I believe a lot of teams will pick goalies based of needs and their positioning is difficult to judge. The Top 100 Prospects list was compiled using data from seven different sources(Corey Pronman’s Top 100, Jeff Marek’s Top 100, Draftsite, The Draft Analyst, HF Boards, The Hockey News, and Future Considerations). An average ranking was calculated based on each player ranking from each source. This data was the basis in fairly ranking each prospect. From there, some personal judgement was made in reorganizing some prospects and out came my Top 100!
The list does not project which team will draft which player and doesn’t account for team needs and roster depth, it is simply a ranking of draft eligible prospects. I am by no means an expert but I had some fun compiling this list so enjoy! Feel free to comment on the players I choose or roast me on Twitter for forgetting someone obvious.
Players who just missed out: Tyler Inamoto, Yaroslav Alexeyev, Jonathan Smart, Jacob Paquette, Jack Rathbone, Kirill Slepets, Lane Zablocki, Adam Thilander, D’Artagnan Joly, Logan Cockerill, Macauley Carson
