PRIME PROSPECTS

as of 8/22/2017

The Prospect Ranking List is compiled taking into account the NHL readiness of the prospect.  The prospect's offensive ability along with the NHL team's needs are also a factor in determining the placement of the prospect.  Those prospects already in the NHL may get a better ranking while others ranked closer to the top are NHL ready and just waiting for the opportunity.  So, in essence, we are talking about a prospect's near-term contribution and not long-term overall potential.  

***Players must have played in less than 70 for skaters and 25 for goaltenders.
