NHL Draft 2019: Final Top 75 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.

The good news for the Colorado Avalanche is that they have five high picks and it’s an odd number draft year. For me Kakko, Byram and Hughes are all franchise level players that three teams will be very lucky to have and hopefully the Avs get one of them. After the big the there are still plenty of high end forwards to build a team around in Dach, Krebs, Boldy, Dorofeyev, Turcotte and Cozens. Podkolzin and Zegras have big upsides as well but both carry a big risk factor. While Byram is in a league of his own there are still great defensemen in this draft with different styles to fit team needs. There are the safer two-way defensemen in Soderstrom, Robertson, Heinola, Korczak and Seider then the more aggressive offensive types in York, Harley, Broberg and Thomson. This year’s class is very deep and will infuse the NHL with impact talent for years to come. It’s also a extremely deep goalie class with Sogaard and Knight leading the way. Neither are worth 16th overall but they’re both worth moving up from 47th to get.

Many of these players are highlighted with shift-by-shift videos and profiles in our Draft Center.
