2019 NHL Draft: Fisher’s Top 217 for January

Kaapo Kakko got the golden goal, but Jack Hughes did enough to stay one step ahead, while Vasili Podkolzin solidified his status as the third-best prospect for this year’s NHL draft with his performance at the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Those three have been 1-2-3 in the same order — Hughes, Kakko, Podkolzin — in each of my five rankings to date, including January, and I don’t foresee that changing between now and June when the draft takes place in Vancouver.

Not even with Kakko netting the winner in the gold-medal game there, nor with his recent shift to centre back in Finland. He’s a stud prospect drawing comparisons to Auston Matthews — more so than fellow Finn Patrik Laine, who went second behind Matthews in 2016 — but Hughes is looking like he’ll be the wire-to-wire favourite to go first overall as a faster version of Patrick Kane with a dash of Connor McDavid.

Jack Hughes is still the No. 1 prospect for the 2019 NHL Entry Draft and it’s debatable how close of a challenger Kaapo Kakko is at No. 2.

Podkolzin has a real edge to his game, a feisty yet clutch scorer who rises to the occasion and who earned a bigger role for Russia than last year’s No. 2 pick Andrei Svechnikov. Podkolzin emerged as a go-to guy, taking a regular shift late in games — a rarity under Valeri Bragin — and coming close to getting the equalizer as the extra attacker in a semifinal loss to the Americans.

Podkolzin was a dominant force at the under-18 Hlinka Gretzky Cup in August and a standout again at the World Junior A Challenge in December, shining at the three biggest international scouting showcases and managing to separate himself from the rest of the pack despite the Russian factor. There is a slight concern since he didn’t report to WHL Medicine Hat as an import draft pick, but that shouldn’t scare off the NHL team picking third overall and certainly won’t impact his spot at No. 3 in my draft rankings.

As for fourth overall, that’s where the debating really begins for me. There are at least five prospects with a legitimate chance of being taken No. 4. The rest of the top 10 is wide open right now and will become the focus — or one of the main focuses — for me in the second half.

Bowen Byram continues to make a case for himself as the top defenceman in the 2019 draft class and a potential top-five pick.

Expect some more movement in that range — from No. 4 to No. 10 — and throughout the remainder of the first round as the draft year continues to play out.

Next week’s CHL Top Prospects Game could shuffle that order to some degree, as could playoff performances and the April under-18 tournament. Those decisions won’t be finalized until after the draft combine, but I’m feeling like my top three are already locked in.

The further down you go in my draft rankings, the more they remain a work in progress, and I still haven’t incorporated any overagers despite deciding to go the full seven rounds for January. I’m working on a separate list of overagers that I may publish later this month before working them into my draft rankings, perhaps as soon as February.

I’m noncommittal on that front — on that timeline — but here are my top 217 first-time eligible prospects for January:
