Top Prospects: The Defensemen

Below are the Top 50 Under-24 defensemen prospects that are not regular NHL players. There is no set limit for NHL games played before a player is no longer condsidered a prospect, but in general if he has played more than half of a season on an NHL roster he will graduate from this list.

Premium members have access to the full list of 500+ defensemen prospects.

 

Note: As an added reference, here is a chart of the prospect scores for players ranked 1 to 75. Various tiers of prospects can be loosely grouped by noticeable drops in scores.For example, players four through eight form a basic tier. Also, notice that the shape of the curve flattens out quickly after about pick 30 or so, meaning that the relative rank becomes less consequential from about 30 to 75. So, as a rule of thumb, there is not a huge disparity between these ranks.
