2019 NHL Draft: Consolidated Industry Rankings for May 2019

It’s been quite a while since I last released a consolidated industry rankings in this space, and I apologize for that – I’ve been a bit preoccupied setting up a new prospect-driven entity over at NextGen Hockey.

Immediately after the Canucks selected Quinn Hughes with the sixth-overall pick in the 2018 draft, the fantasizing about the Hughes Boys being the new set of superstar brothers in Vancouver began.
