Attacking you with draft stats in this Sunday's Ramblings…


I don't have much of a prelude to this Sunday's Ramblings. The 2016 NHL Entry Draft happened on Friday and Saturday and teams re-stocked their prospect cupboards. Here is a look at various prospect numbers that hopefully you find just as interesting as I did, of not for evaluating propscts yourself then to simply gain a better insight into how the league as a whole seems to value various factors. Here you go:

On a completely unrelated note: Adam Henrique of the New Jersey Devils did a fun "Ask Me Anything" Reddit post (here's the link). Always great to see players and fans having a fun time.
