Why not!?

Being exactly one week out from the 2016 NHL Draft is the perfect time to start thinking about the 2017 NHL Draft, right? Why not!

We've released our preliminary top-30 for the 2017 NHL Draft.

Always a pile of movement between preliminary and final rankings, but never too early to have a little fun with what will immediately become the next wave in eight day's time.

But for now, all eyes will be on Brandon Wheat Kings center Nolan Patrick.

Patrick, the early favorite to go first overall, plays a mature, heady two-way game and has some strong bloodlines. He’s already put the Western Hockey League on notice, too, with 41 goals and 102 points as a 17-year-old. It followed up a 30-goal, 56-point campaign at just 16.

“He’s the guy to beat right now,” said Future Considerations scout Justin Froese, who is located in Brandon. “Patrick has been tearing up the WHL while playing a Ryan Getzlaf-type of game. He’s big, driven and a highly intelligent passer and raises his level of play to take over games.”
