  • The table display approximately 30 of the prospects at a time; simply scroll down to view the other prospects.
  • Only a portion of the table displays by default; you can scroll over to see the rest of the player demographics and statistics or select “View full-size workbook” option, which is the icon in the bottom right hand corner, to view the full table.  The beauty of this option is that you can then download the file to your computer and play with it or adjust it anyway you like.
  • The 1st column (E-Mac) is Eldon MacDonald’s June rankings. (Not to be confused with THW’s official The Next Ones rankings {Chris’s List} which will be released at a later date).
  • The 3rd column on the left is rankings based on the combination of NHL Central Scouting Service’s four separate rankings (NR = player was not ranked by NHL-CS).
  • A link to Elite Prospects statistics for most of the players is also included (click on individual player name).
  • Prospects in the 6th round are listed alphabetically; that is, they are not ranked but rather grouped together as a 6th round graded prospect.
