Prospects Ramblings: The Best of DobberProspects and World Championship Scouting

Peter Harling


There is lot’s happening in the hockey world right now, with the NHL Draft lottery resolved, CHL Finals about to begin, AHL playoffs heading into round two, the U18 all done and the World Championship about to begin, how does it all relate to fantasy hockey, and in particular prospects?

Today’s prospects are tomorrow’s fantasy performers. You can watch top prospects compete in these late season tournaments against elite competition to get a glimpse of who is poised to make the jump from prospect to player.

Let’s start at the Draft Lottery. First, in case you missed it we have been all over the entry draft this year. Here is what you want to go back and review if you missed any of it.

The Draft prospects with profiles can be found on the Undrafted – Under 20 page. There are a handful posted already and more to come, so check back often.

We posted our Fantasy Ranking the Draft Eligible Prospects with a consensus ranking back in January with contributions from several DobberProspects writers and guest writers such as Steve Kournianos, Scott Wheeler, Mark Seidel, Ryan Wagman, Anthony Mauro, and Brock Otten. We will be updating this closer to the draft.

For another look, the DobberProspects staff ran a Mock Draft where a number of the writers selected on behalf of the teams they cover. It is the highest viewed post all-time on our site so give it a read. As I write this we are currently drafting for the Mock Draft 2.0 post draft lottery, so look for that on our Feature Page.

Still want more? No problem, I have posted the first DobberProspects Top 31NHL Draft Rankings with a short note on each player. This will be updated again before the draft so check back soon.
