It's been a little less than a month since our last Consolidated Rankings were published, but six of the eight list makers have put out new rankings, and there has been plenty of movement already. The World Junior Championships also took place in that time frame, and as that's one of the most important events of the season for draft eligible prospects, it factors heavily in the perception of many of the players.
Let's take a look at the potential first round of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, as it looks in mid-January.

I skipped another week, so it looks like this one is going to be another Weeks in Review article - I hope you're ready for that.
This one is going to be considerably more chipper than the last one, which covered a long and excruciating losing streak. This time around, the Comets are winning! They've won five of their last six games, thanks to fantastic goaltending and a super hot top line. Come read all about it!

We're doubling up the Midterm Rankings today - after Jackson gave you a review of the Canucks' 16th and 15th ranked prospects this morning, we're ready to jump into part four, in which we'll review Vancouver's 14th and 13th ranked prospects.
Once again, I'll quickly review the criteria for consideration for the rankings:
- The player must be 25 years or younger, and
- The player must be eligible for the Calder Trophy next season.
As a result, players that are considered to be "graduated" to the NHL (Brendan Gaunce, Nikita Tryamkin, Jake Virtanen, Anton Rodin) are not eligible.
Let's get into it.

I'm back with another weekly schedule, checking out what's to come in the week ahead for all the Canucks players, affiliates and prospects, as well as a few games to take note of that involve both Canucks prospects and players eligible for the 2017 NHL draft, for those looking to kill two or more birds with one stone in your viewings.
Lets jump right into it.

Yesterday, Jackson McDonald kicked off our Canucks Army Midterm Prospect Rankings, chronicling the progression of Michael Carcone and Ashton Sautner, which we have deemed the 20th and 19th best prospects in the Vancouver system, respectively.
Welcome to part two of the Midterm Rankings, in which we will look deeper into the Vancouver Canucks' 18th and 17th ranked prospects.
