Top Prospects: The Forwards

Below are the top 50 current U24 forward prospects that are not regular NHL players. There is not set limit for NHL games played, but in general if a prospect 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 700+ forward prospects.

 

Note: As an added reference, here is a chart of the prospect scores for players ranked 1 to 75. Notice that the shape of the curve flattens out quickly after about pick 35, meaning that the relative rank becomes less consequential from about 35 to 75. So, as a rule of thumb, there is not a huge disparity between these ranks.
