The NHL Draft Black Book was a new product that made it’s debut in May of 2012. The first edition of the book proved to be a huge success. The 2013, 2014 and 2015 Black Books expanded on the first version of the book and gain more popularity each year.
2016 NHL Draft Black Book
Looking ahead to the Buffalo draft, the 2016 NHL Draft Black Book will be released in early June. Buyers can expect individual game reports from our scouts and we will also include a large number of prospect scouting reports (profiles) on players eligible for the 2016 NHL Draft as well as the 2017 & 2018 NHL Drafts. As always in our publications, a full ranking of the top 210 prospects for the 2016 NHL Draft will be included.
This year we are also releasing the 2016 NHL Draft Black Book Team Edition. The team edition adds more content for individuals who want even more NHL Draft prospects information than we already provide in our regular edition of our Black Book.
While we don’t know the exact page counts yet for the 2016 editions, last year’s Black Book was packed with NHL Draft Prospect reports and individual game reports. You can expect it again in 2016. The 2016 NHL Draft Black Book will be priced at $39.99 for the INSTANT DOWNLOAD PDF version. The print version will be available a few days after the PDF release in June. The price for the paperback will be determined at print time. The Team Edition of the Black Book is only available in PDF Format.

Our draft book always includes our popular ‘quotables’ feature, with quotes from our scouts and NHL scouts.
