Seth Jones has separated himself from Nathan MacKinnon and Jonathan Drouin is closing in on MacKinnon. Meanwhile Aleksander Barkov is tearing up the Finnish leagues.

The sources for the consensus list are Bob McKenzie, Future Considerations, ISS, Ryan Kennedy, Craig Button, Corey Pronman of Hockey Prospectus, and The Scouting Report.  Their rankings are weight by their accuracy in ranking previous drafts: Bob McKenzie's rankings carry the most weight as he's the most accurate prognosticator in the group.

Rising:

  • Halifax's Jonathan Drouin's is moving up the charts every month.  He's now closer to Nathan MacKinnon than Aleksander Barkov is to Drouin.
  • Valeri Nichushkin is up 4 spots to #7 which seems great, until it's compared to Darnell Nurse, the big defenseman from Sault Ste. Marie who jumped 10 spots to #8.
  • Take a peek back to #66 - Jimmy Lodge.  He's up 58 spots this month and will end up in the first round when everything is said and done.

Trends:

  • Speaking of Barkov, he has 21 goals and 25 assists in 49 games.  That sounds nice, until you notice that's in the SM-Liiga - a professional league and a good one at that.  That translates to 19 goals and 23 assists in the NHL.  Oh, and Barkov doesn't turn 18 until September 2.
  • The QMJHL no longer has seven players in the top 30, but they have six, and that still makes this a tremendous draft class.
  • Kerby Rychel slides yet again to #22.  He began the year ranked #14, but has fallen in every one of our contributors' individual rankings.
