As we start to approach the middle of the second round for rankings, things start to get interesting. The grouping of 51st to 47th has four defenceman and a winger who could conceivably go much earlier in June.

As we get to the middle of the second round, the ranked players become more and more intriguing. This grouping includes a former first overall pick in the QMJHL draft, a defenceman who put up 59 points, a standout at the U18's, the younger brother of a former 4th overall pick in the NHL and defenceman from the USDP with a high offensive ceiling. 


We will reference the Prospect Graduation Probabilities System (pGPS) throughout this piece, a more indepth explanation can be found here. But simply put, the system is used to see how often statistically similar players graduate into the NHL. It isn't used as the only point of reference or analysis, but is a complimenting tool to give us another angle to analyze these draft hopefuls.
