NHL Draft Black Book

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. Our book continues to gain more popularity each year. Once again this year we are only producing one Black Book. We are also producing an NHL Draft Guide which contains the Black Book’s 2019 Draft prospects profiles and rankings. You don’t need the Draft Guide if you purchase the Black book.
