Top 15 nhl draft prospects
and in some cases halted schedules for many junior and college teams.

For NHL scouts, it means a lot more video than usual and a lot more forecasting but those who know their regions inside-out still have a firm base to work off.

Having said that, expect the unexpected this year as teams will likely have drastically different draft boards when the virtual festivities get underway on July.

Travel has been different and sample sizes are smaller, so opinions will be quite varied.

With all of that as a backdrop, this year's World Under-18 Championship, which starts next week in Texas, will be even more crucial than ever when it comes to shaping final draft boards.

Some of Team Canada's OHL players haven't played at all since March of 2020, while some of Finland's kids from Helsinki haven't played since late November.

So it felt like the right time to drop some draft rankings.

What you'll find below is where I see thing stand right now, based on conversations I've had with NHL team scouts this season.

33 is minuscule; it just means the kid who went 32nd gets to sleep better that first night of the draft.

With all that being said, here is my early top 40 for the 2021 draft.

Owen Power, D, Michigan (BigTen The fact Power was able to step into a meaty role on good ncaa team at 18 is remarkable.
