Here is a quick update to my pre-season prospects rankings which now includes goaltender Frederik Dichow and defenseman Kieran Ruscheinski both of whom were not ranked last time. This ranking was initially released on Twitter for the end of October.
Noah Juulsen, Jesperi Kotkaniemi, Michael McCarron and Gustav Olofsson have not been included as they have played in at least 40 NHL games and will all likely graduate by the end of the 2019-20 season. Arvid Henrikson remains as the only current eligible prospect to have not been included as I don’t believe the Habs will retain his rights which are set to expire on August 15th, 2020.
If you would like to know more about my criteria and how I put these rankings together please see the last ranking here.
Below is a table of the full ranking which now includes an additional column called “CHNG” which is the number of spots each player has changed since the last ranking. Now just to clarify some prospects may receive a negative value in change but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are on a cold streak.
