The Final TLN Consolidated Draft Rankings

Jon Steitzer

The Bob McKenzie draft rankings seem to be widely regarded as the definitive rankings, given the high success rate of identifying first round selections. They also have the benefit of being based on NHL scouting staff sources, which isn’t to say they are better, or more accurate, but will be more predictive for those wanting to know where a prospect is potentially going to be picked.
The full list of 100 prospects can be found at TSN. 
As for us, it’s the final time we’ll update our consolidated draft rankings that run off of McKenzie’s list, HockeyProspect.com, Future Considerations, Dobber Prospects, Elite Prospects, and of course, our own Nick Richard’s list.
Given that the lists are based off of the lists of others and not TLN, you’ll notice that Logan Mailloux is still listed. I was a bit shocked to see that Logan Mailloux was at 35 on Bob McKenzie’s final rankings, but I’d have to imagine those were submitted well in advance of the news coming to light, and he’s very likely to be added to a few “do not draft” lists.
With the update to our rankings, comes the update to the draft prospect player cards, where you can find some statistics on each prospect, their rankings, and also their Hunter Score, which gives each player a value based on their on ice outputs, as well as their GF/GA variance, weighted by their league. (A full breakdown of how the consolidated rankings and Hunter score work can be found here.)

From a Leafs fan perspective, it’s encouraging to see that names like Brett Harrison still show up when they pick, and with the draft having a history of players who slide, and GM’s who reach, the Leafs will likely walk away with a player from the top 50.
With the opening night for the draft coming up on Friday, and the Leafs with their marginally more busy day Saturday, consider this your crash course in who to watch for.
