The number one ranked North American skater, Pierre-Luc Dubois is ranked fourth in our consensus 2016 NHL Entry Draft Rankings.

After spending the majority of the season ranked as the second best North American skater, Dubois leapfrogged Matthew Tkachuk and took over the number one spot after a fantastic and dominant second half to his season. That second half was with Dubois playing mostly centre, instead of his natural position of LW.

There are still questions around if Dubois can make the NHL as a centre, but that shouldn't take away from the fact that the Ste.-Agathe-des-Monts native is a fantastic prospect that can take over a game.

Nation Network Prospect Profile #5: Matthew Tkachuk

Matthew Tkachuk

There's a whole lot to like about Matthew Tkachuk, son of former NHLer Keith Tkachuk. He's big, he's tough, he's got a great shot and impressive vision and playmaking ability. As the fifth ranked prospect on our list, he falls right into the wheelhouse of some Canadian teams, making the locals pay even closer attention.

But Tkachuk hasn't been without his detractors, and while you certainly can't claim that he isn't incredibly talented, there is a case to be made that his numbers have been inflated a bit because of who he spent the 2015-16 season playing with. Read on to find out more.
