NHL Draft

Consolidated final 2022 NHL Draft rankings

The NHL released their final draft rankings this week along with several other notable junior hockey experts. Unlike the 2021 draft, this year’s draft will feature players who actually played hockey this season, and that has allowed the list of draft eligible players to sort itself out in a much more consistent way.

As was the case at the midterm, the 2022 draft has a clear cut number one player in Shane Wright, with a decent crop of players rounding out the first round. The Montreal Canadiens won the draft lottery and the right to select Wright first overall, and there is no doubt that they will select him.

One of the most notable observations from this year’s final rankings is the lack of Russian players in the first round. There is a healthy mix of prospects playing in Canada, USA, and Sweden; and even Finland, Czechia, and Slovakia in the first round. There are only three draft eligibles who are currently playing in Russia. One of those players is Ivan Miroshnichenko, who was recently diagnosed with Hodgkin Lymphoma.

This will be forever known as the Shane Wright draft. He was the number one ranked player in all but one rankings list. Juraj Slafkovský was the only other player to receive a first place vote. Five players received second place votes, nine players received at least one top-five vote, 22 players received at least one top-10 vote, and 51 players received at least one vote in the top 32.

Our rankings include those from Dobber, Smaht Scouting, Sam Cosentino, Future Considerations, Yahoo, THW’s Peter Baracchini, THW’s Ryan Kennedy, Montreal Hockey Now’s Marco D’Amico , Last Word On Sports, The Athletic’s Scott Wheeler, The Athletic’s Corey Pronman, Craig Button, EliteProspects, Recruit Scouting, and Draft Pro. If any notable rankings were missed, please let us know and we will adjust our consolidated rankings accordingly.

Without further ado, here’s the top 100.
