Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that 143 CHL players have been listed by NHL Central Scouting in their Final Rankings for the 2018 NHL Draft which takes place June 22-23 in Dallas, TX.

The 143 players includes 127 skaters of the 217 ranked by NHL Central Scouting in North America while 16 of the 31 goaltenders ranked are also from the CHL.  In total, 58% of all players ranked by NHL Central Scouting are currently competing in the CHL.

21 of the top 31 ranked North American prospects are from the CHL led by forward Andrei Svechnikov (Barrie Colts). Third, fourth and fifth-ranked skaters Filip Zadina (Halifax Mooseheads), Evan Bouchard (London Knights) and Noah Dobson (Acadie-Bathurst Titan) trail close behind while eighth-ranked Joe Veleno (Drummondville Voltigeurs), ninth-ranked Barrett Hayton (Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds) and tenth-ranked Serron Noel (Oshawa Generals) round out CHL players in the top-10.

Other highly ranked defencemen following Bouchard and Dobson include 11th ranked Rasmus Sandin (Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds), 13th-ranked Jared McIsaac (Halifax Mooseheads) and 14th-ranked Ty Smith (Spokane Chiefs).

The QMJHL has produced North America’s top three goaltending prospects including top-ranked Olivier Rodrigue (Drummondville Voltigeurs) followed by Kevin Mandolese (Cape Breton Screaming Eagles) and Alexis Gravel (Halifax Mooseheads).

The Ontario Hockey League has a total of 61 players ranked, followed by the Western Hockey League with 45 players, and the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League with 37 players.

The Drummondville Voltigeurs lead the CHL with eight players ranked followed by the Ottawa 67’s with seven and the London Knights with six. 54 of the CHL’s 60 clubs have at least one player included in the rankings.

Fourteen of the top 20 ranked skaters plus each of the top-three ranked goaltenders competed in the 2018 Sherwin-Williams CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game.

140 CHL players were listed in NHL Central Scouting’s Midterm Rankings released in January, while 89 players from the CHL were selected in the 2017 NHL Draft including 14 players selected in the first round.
