Dobber’s DraftCast Episode 9: Draft Rankings Top-100 Scouting Meeting

Jokke Nevalainen



On this episode of Dobber’s DraftCast, hosts Tony Ferrari and Jokke Nevalainen are joined by the majority of the DobberProspects’ scouting team to sort out the teams top-100 2020 NHL Draft rankings! This behind the scenes look gives a bit of an idea of what a scouting meeting is like, our evaluations of over 100 players, and the reasoning behind why we have players where we have them. The meeting was edited down from its original length to include just the discussion relevant to the draft and the prospects.
