The final stretch is upon us for the 2023 NHL Draft.
After watching most of these kids develop for over two years now the last big events of their pre-draft scouting seasons are in full swing with the IIHF U18 World Championships ongoing over in Switzerland, and CHL playoffs also happening with the Memorial Cup yet to come. The USHL playoffs are just starting on route to the Clarke Cup as well. But many other leagues around the world have already wrapped up for the season.
The U18’s become our last chance to see many of these prospects live before we have to rely strictly on film from previous games to finish the season. So each viewing becomes that much more valuable.
Three weeks ago our also evaluators met up to discuss the DraftPro Spring Rankings, our second last ranking offering of the season, and saw quite a few names to move around based on our evaluators most recent views. As names were discussed, some tumbled down the list while a few also enjoyed a late season jump up the board. For a deep dive into each prospect and where we see them as pros make sure to pick up the comprehensive 2023 DraftPro NHL Entry Draft Guide.
Below is the Draft Prospects Hockey Spring Top 100 Ranking for the 2023 NHL Draft.
