2020 NHL Draft Rankings

HockeyProspect.com has produced NHL Draft Rankings for eligible draft prospects for the NHL draft since 2004. Our NHL Draft Rankings are released monthly from September through February. We don’t release our rankings lists in March, April or May, but in early June we release our final ranking list which includes full seven round rankings of draft eligible prospects.

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