NHL Draft 2020: Final Top 62 Ranking

As an ongoing special to Burgundy Review, Nathan Chapman (@ncchapman15) has provided the final installment of his rankings for the upcoming 2020 NHL draft.

The 2020 draft is highlighted by Alexis Lafreniere who is the best wing since Alex Ovechkin and is justifiably at the top of the class. What follows is a deep first round with plenty of talent especially at forward but falls off fast near the late first. The defense and goaltending are a weaker bunch with the exception of Yaroslav Askarov, who is a top ten talent in net. Only four defensemen project as sure first rounders with a lot of others in the mix
