Welcome to my 2021 NHL Draft!

This Top 100 ranking (plus his 70 honorable mentions) is my final list for this draft class and follows the September preseason top 32, December preliminary top 64 and March mid-season top 64. .

As always, this project includes comprehensive player reviews for each ranked prospect and quotes from industry sources on many. It will be followed this week by scouting reports on 10 prospects who missed the cut and a live Q&A to answer any outstanding questions you may have.

Getting here has been more difficult than in any of the previous eight years that I have done this. Instead of spending much of the hockey season on the road, I spent most of it, with the exception of my trip to Edmonton for the 2021 World Junior Championships, quarantined in Toronto (which also included the missing U18 world championships for my son’s birth).

All in all, though, I’m really comfortable with where I am in this draft class. Less time on the road meant a lot more time on the phone or watching a tape. And while most leagues have faced some form of delay or cancellation – or in OHL’s case, a full-season stoppage – nearly every player ranked here (with the exception of Connor Lockhart and Ty Voit!) Have played hockey this season, and the vast majority have played up close. to a full schedule.
