2022 NHL Draft

EOTP’s 2022 NHL Draft Rankings

We used 15 sources to come up with an ultimate ranking of the prospects.

Draft profile: Julian Lutz could become a solid workhorse in the NHL

The German got his draft season spoiled by injury, but that does not negate his interesting qualities.

Draft profile: Cutter Gauthier has a bit of everything that scouts like

A look at what makes Gauthier one of the most coveted prospects in the 2022 NHL Draft.

Draft profile: Adam Sýkora brings a lot of intensity

This hard-working, feisty winger could be an underrated option near the beginning of the second round.

Draft profile: Elias Salomonsson is still figuring out his game

The pieces are there, but he’s having issues putting the puzzle together.

2022 NHL Mock Draft: Canadiens select Jagger Firkus 26th overall

There will be 225 players selected in the NHL Draft, but not one of them shoots like Jagger.

Draft profile: Sam Rinzel is a dark horse at the end of Round One

The Minnesotan is this year’s top rated U.S. high-school player.

Draft profile: Jonathan Lekkerimäki is one of the draft’s best shooters

The winger has few peers in terms is his shot power, but that’s his only true ability.

Draft profile: Noah Õstlund’s offence showed up at the right time

An incredible turnaround at the end to his season put the centreman back in first-round contention.

Draft profile: Ryan Chesley’s main qualities are in his defensive display

Is there more to the game of this development program graduate than just being a solid-floor type of prospect?

Draft profile: Filip Mešár is the prototypical high-risk, high-reward player

Can this young Slovak put all the tools at his disposal together and become a potential first-round steal?

Draft profile: Samuel Savoie brings excellent late-round value

Savoie’s name won’t be called early in the draft, but his play style should make him a fan favourite wherever he goes.

Draft profile: Is Seamus Casey’s high-wire act worth the risk?

A gifted puck-handler, is there more to the small defenceman’s game?

2022 NHL Mock Draft: Canadiens select Shane Wright first overall

There has been a lot of debate in recent weeks, but the choice at first overall is clear.

Draft profile: Is Tristan Luneau worth a first-round pick?

With the Canadiens selecting 26th overall using the Calgary Flames’ pick, we take a look at Luneau’s profile to see if he’s worth a swing in that range.

Draft profile: Calle Odelius has defence as his calling card

Analysts seem to be split on the fast-skating defenceman.

Draft profile: Danila Yurov is a top talent in professional limbo

Stuck between two leagues, Yurov should be the first Russian forward off the board.

Draft profile: Jani Nyman has both intriguing tools and scary flaws

Nyman’s impressive season in the Finnish second division has made him skyrocket up many draft boards.

Draft profile: Lane Hutson has great skills and concerning flaws

The defenceman is one of the most exciting players in the draft class, but there’s no guarantee he gets to the NHL to show off those abilities.

Draft profile: Jack Hughes has made a name for himself

As the youngest player in the NCAA, he is firmly on the first-round bubble.

Draft profile: Brad Lambert is one year removed from being a top-three prospect

For the third year in a row, a prospective top selection out of Finland has fallen down the pecking order. Why are scouts suddenly doubting Brad Lambert?

Draft profile: Owen Beck does all the little things well to help teams win

A delayed OHL debut season has put him in the first round conversation.

Draft profile: Lian Bichsel’s size will always be his calling card

If Montreal wants to go for a big defenceman with a first-round pick for the third year in a row, then look no further than former Biel big boy Bichsel.

Draft profile: Jordan Dumais could be the steal of the year

An undersized yet elite playmaker will be available on day two.

Draft profile: Pavel Mintyukov brings an aggressive playstyle to the blue line

When it comes to high-risk, high-reward players, there may be none who fits the description better than Pavel Mintyukov.

Draft profile: Has Alexander Perevalov shown enough to be a first-rounder?

The Russian winger is the epitome of a divisive prospect, and it all depends on how you choose to look at him.

Draft profile: David Goyette brings highlight-reel skills

A great skater with even better puck-handling skills, Goyette is a highlight machine.

Draft profile: Rutger McGroarty is both a leader and a scorer

If his skating stride were to develop, the sky could be the limit of this young power forward.

Draft profile: Mats Lindgren, offensive defenceman

Mats Lindgren is one of the flashiest offensive defensemen in the entire CHL.

Draft profile: Luca Del Bel Belluz has high-end offensive tools

Luca Del Bel Belluz is one of the most improved players in the OHL, and has risen on some draft boards as a result.

Draft profile: Frank Nazar’s vision makes him a dangerous dual-threat centre

Part of an elite development program, Nazar is among the best coming out of the USNTDP.

Draft profile: Marco Kasper’s low production shouldn’t be a concern

He didn’t feature regularly on the scoresheet, but he was a key part of his teams’ success in 2021-22.
