2018 NHL Draft Rankings

HockeyProspect.com produces NHL Draft Rankings for eligible draft prospects for the current seasons draft. Our NHL Draft Rankings are released monthly from September through February. We don’t release our rankings lists to the public in March, April or May, but in early June we release our final rankings list which includes full seven round rankings of draft eligible prospects.

Our rankings lists are created after we combine scouting reports from multiple live viewings of prospects provided by our scouts who are located across Canada, USA and Europe.
