Our first ever Blue Dispatch draft guide was released here: www.draftineu.com
Provides Top 80 and Top 20 rankings of prospects playing in Europe for the 2017 and 2018 Entry Drafts, along with in-depth scouting reports.
All top 60 prospects for this year's draft have their dedicated page with, among other things, ratings on 7 categories we consider when projecting a player and statistics from the last couple of seasons, including time on ice.
Thursday, June 8, 2017
With the free preview in April we anticipated the look of the player's profile pages in our upcoming draft guide, but as we move (not fast enough!) closer to the release it’s time to provide a little update on that.
What follows is the enhanced final version that will be available for the top 60 prospects, to form the core of the publication.
For each player that earned his dedicated page, along with his profile and
in-Europe final ranking you will get (all in one place):
- a season rankings table to see how the player has been trending throughout his draft year
- our overall ranking assessment and draft day expectations
- info on the amount of viewings
- a small NHL projection sector
- the ratings we think he deserves in seven categories that we consider relevant when projecting a prospect's future success. Each category is comprehensive of different elements that go into it and is defined inside the guide
- the player’s stats from the last two seasons, including a comparative (in-league) rank and time on ice whenever available
