Puckoffeh.ca 2017 NHL Entry Draft Top 105 Skaters / Top 10 Goalies

This is my third annual NHL entry draft rankings. Like in past years I utilise multiple other lists which include TSN, Sportsnet, The Hockey News, Central Scouting, McKeens, Future Considerations, ISS Hockey and Hockeyprospects.com to form my rankings. This is the first year I have decided to separate the Skaters and the Goaltenders. The list is a totalling of these various lists and an averaging of them to get the players assigned ranking, a player had to be in a minimum of five of the nine lists to qualify to be ranked. If you click on a players name it will take you to their eliteprospects.com profile page which has a summary of some of the rankings used, player profiles and stats. At the bottom you will also find links to each one of the lists utilised to make these rankings.
