CSS Preliminary Rankings Released - Big Surprise!
NHL Central Scouting has released the preliminary rankings today with a big surprise in the OHL rankings.
It's still early, with a long way to go before June's draft and so of course these rankings will be changing all year. Last season Tavares came in as the clear cut number one, but as the year progressed, Viktor Hedman made a strong point and there came a point in the year when many experts believed that Hedman would be taken 1st overall. But Tavares overtook Hedman as the season came to a close and was the best fit for the Islanders who held the first pick.
Here are the CSS North American Preliminary Rankings:
