It’s early Sunday morning and the men of NHL Central Scouting have returned to the hotel conference room here in Vaughan, Ont., to continue ranking the top North American prospects eligible for the 2012 NHL Draft.
The scouts currently are 50 players deep and into the heart of the second round. We’re at a point now where it could be time to find those diamonds in the rough. That’s precisely what Central Scouting is paid to do.
As promised, here are the top 10 players Central Scouting ranked in each league. In order to maintain some level of confidentiality, the players are listed in alphabetical order.
Keep in mind, this is the closest thing you’ll get to a finalized list until the actual release of the “Big Chart”, tentatively scheduled for April 9. The number beside each league represents the projected amount of first-round picks from that league’s top 10.
