Prospects within +/-5.0 rating points of each other should be considered equal and become just a matter of personal preference. o= offensive t=two-way p=power forward os=offensive small

  • CJM

    Where does Alex Debrincat rate? I have him above most of this list.

  • Dean Youngblood

    Dudes, Gotta get Jesper Bratt (NJD) on this list. He’s a gem and I’d have him Top 30. Kid can play. Kyrou should be further up this list as well. Robbie Thomas needs a healthy bump too

    • Dobber

      I have Bratt around 205 – too far out. Swede 2nd league? Thanks for tips Brendan

  • all-in

    No August & September updates? Need to buy the guide?

  • Kyle Snowdon

    Where is Chabot, Sergachev, etc? At first I thought maybe this list didn’t include those who have played at least one NHL game but if that were true Barzal, Puljujarvi, and Meier wouldn’t be here on the list.

    • dom coulombe

      This is top 200 Forwards.

  • Tyler

    I’m in a keeper league that drafts 1st rounders and rookies that played in their first NHL game(s) the previous season. I was able to obtain the 2nd and 3rd overall picks. I’m selecting best player available. How would you rank Hisch, Guentzel, Patrick and Aho in terms of long-terms upside? Hisch is likely gone with the 1st, so I’m looking at one of the other three, and leery on Patrick given his hernias. Thanks in advance!

  • toucansafari

    Hi Dobber. Thanks again for the rankings. So based on the prospect report, in my draft I took guys like Thomas, Poeling, Ratcliff over Chytil and Norris. Now the rankings come out and those guys don’t even crack the top 200 and Norris and Chytil are way up the list. Is that just a result of team they got drafted by? Did I make some bad draft day decisions?

  • Ville Pääkkö

    In the prospect guide you had tolvanen, mittelstadt, makar etc before glass. What made you change your mind about glass? Or is he closer to nhl but lower upside?

  • Pat Fraser

    Hi dobber, great job, I was sure Clayton Keller and Dylan Strome would be before Nico Hischier and Nolan Patrick in this list and I was right for Keller … there’s one guy missing I think Eeli Tolvanen (nas round 1 #30), he’s one of top goal scorer to come … keep me posted for that … thanks.

    • Dobber

      His rank is 220

      • Pat Fraser

        why ? he’s low for a guy with his potential … he should be in the top 100 don’t he ? … he’s better than 98-norris sjs, 102-chytil nyr and 108-haapala fla ….

      • Dobber

        Mainly, look at Nashville’s prospect track record. Most of them put up points at 23 or 24 or longer. You want to sit on him for 6 years?
        A San Jose guy is often up and helping fantasy teams at 21. Those two years make a big difference, you’re not wasting a roster spot for as long.

      • Pat Fraser

        thanks dobbs, that’s a good observation … though i’m sure you will move him up in a few months because he’s too good to pass on … we’ll see …

  • Wes

    Alex Tuch is VGK now, not MIN. Just a minor oversight.

  • John

    Just a reminder that Alex Tuch is now a LV. Golden Knight not MIN

    • Dobber

      Noted, thanks
      I had adjusted his ranking properly, but forgot to change his team

  • Marc-Olivier Fortier

    Hearing Kirill Kaprizov recently signed 3 yr extention in KHL. Shouldn’t this affect his ranking more?

    • Dobber

      I didn’t know

      • Marc-Olivier Fortier

        Yeah, pretty much confirmed on the internets…
