With less than two months until the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, our friends at ISS Hockey have released their latest Top 30 prospects. Not much has changed since many players haven’t seen the ice since the end of junior hockey season, but many are seeing time in the Canadian Hockey League playoffs and even Jack Eichel is participating in the World Championship for Team USA.
As it’s been said multiple times, this is a generational draft. So, even if a team doesn’t have a pick in the top 10, or even the first round, they will still be able to pick a player with extremely high potential. Many players picked late in the first round would potentially be in the top 10 in almost any other year.
A noted move is Colin White jumping eight spots in the latest rankings, which you can see below. Be on the lookout for prospect scouting reports on a few of the high ranking players as we get closer to the draft.
