NHL Draft 2019: Spring Top 62 Ranking

As an ongoing special to Bugundy Rainbow, Nathan Chapman (@ncchapman15) has provided the latest installment of his rankings for the upcoming 2019 NHL draft.

As the 2018-19 the season begins to wrap up and head to the post season, draft season is rapidly approaching with the draft lottery set for April 9th and the Under 18 World Championship later that month on the horizon. This draft is shaping up to forward heavy up top with good defense options in the mid to late first. It is a deep draft for depth and holding five top ~80 picks should bring the Avalanche some impact talent.
