The 2022 NHL Entry Draft is nearly here. In just over a week, Montreal will host the first in-person draft in three years, setting up for an event to remember. Not only do the Canadiens hold the first overall pick, but there is also uncertainty as to who will be the first name off the board, in addition to plenty of intriguing storylines down the order.
22 rankings currently have been compiled for this consolidated ranking. Lists from the following outlets have been included, as well as rankings from individual scouts from these outlets:
  • Daily Faceoff
  • Dobber Prospects
  • Draft Prospects Hockey
  • Elite Prospects
  • Future Considerations
  • Hockey Prospecting
  • McKeen’s
  • Recruit Scouting
  • Smaht Scouting
  • Sportsnet
  • The Athletic
  • The Hockey News
  • The Hockey Writers
  • TSN
Also, note that all of the rankings included are exclusively those that are final lists from the respective outlet or scout. Rankings that are recent but not final, such as Corey Pronman’s, have not been included.
