When debating the rankings for the Spring release our team soon came to the consensus understanding of the 2021 NHL Draft class. Top 1-10 are pretty much interchangeable at this point depending on the type of prospect the selecting team is interested in. Meaning if you want a potential top four blueliner there are four to pick from, if you are looking for an offensive spark at forward there are three good choices there as well, if you are looking for hard working two-way forwards there are a couple and even a potential NHL starting goaltender if the need is there.

Unlike previous years where one or two prospects set themselves apart as premier, can’t miss, franchise defining talents, the 2021 Draft is full of a bunch of highly skilled wildcards at the top end. It would not surprise us to see any one of these ten slip into the top three of the draft when NHL teams make their picks in July.

Below is our spring rankings for the 2021 NHL Draft, our second last ranking release of the season.
