The Next Generation: CTP’s November Top 31 for the 2019 NHL Entry Draft

November was an interesting month for the crop of 2019 NHL draft prospects. We saw some climb up the rankings and into our hearts (see: Philip Broberg), and others drop out of the radar entirely as first round potential picks (see: Maxim Cajkovic). To see exactly where these kids ranked last month, you can find our October draft rankings in two parts here, top 15 and bottom 16.

Again, the omnipresent and ambiguous ‘we’ is Ellie Green, and CTP’s capitalcorrespondent. We’re late this month, because November has one less day than we thought it did. Sit down, buckle in and get ready to read about the draft prospects we project to go in the first round.

Editors note: Grab a coffee… it’s a long one!

The Vegas Golden Knights May have had to wait until day two of the NHL draft, but just how well did they do this weekend in helping their team down the line?

Nobody expects you to find an NHL ready talent on day two, let alone outside the top 5 picks usually, so the Golden Knights will just have to keep pumping players into their prospect pool to try and make sure that the incredible inaugural season they’ve just had wasn’t one fuelled by hype, but more fuelled by an actually competitive team that will be just that for the foreseeable future.
