With the World Juniors and CHL Top Prospects game behind us, we’ve had a chance to see a lot of the prospects playing against their peers and it’s helped to get a better grasp on some of this year’s draft prospects.
My top-5 remains the same but I’ve made some big moves since January with Dubois and Keller moving up into the top-10. Alex Debrincat has looked out of sorts in Erie the past little while and he’s no longer playing like he should be a top-20 pick. At the bottom of the first round are a couple of new additions. It may be proximity bias but I have been incredibly impressed with what I have seen from both Nathan Bastian and Adam Mascherin this season.
