Consolidated 2019 NHL Draft Rankings – November 2018

A lot of independent scouts and scouting agencies have released updated rankings for the 2019 NHL Entry Draft, so now is a good time to put all those rankings together and see how things shake up.


All the rankings used for this are available for free. Here are the ones that were used:


Some popular scouting agencies were excluded because their freely available rankings aren’t deep enough for proper results.


Without further ado, let’s see the results.

All player data was taken from as usual.


Rankings were consolidated using a simple points system where first place gives you 110 points, 2nd place gives you 109 points, and so on. That also helps create a graph which reveals some tiers that are emerging. Total points on the left, rank number at the bottom.
