OAKVILLE, ONTARIO–HockeyProspect.com is pleased to release our final rankings for the 2014 NHL Draft. Along with the top 30 rankings release, we have released our 2014 NHL Draft Black Book.  Our NHL Draft Black Book features a full Top 210 prospects ranking for this years NHL Draft and much more! Our final top 30 NHL rankings we released today are our first rankings since February. We have several changes since that release. New at the top of our rankings is Kingston Frontenac, Sam Bennett. The Kingston star is making his debut at the op of our list. “It’s so close amongst the top 7 or 8 prospects.” HockeyProspect.com’s Director of Scouting, Mark Edwards noted. “Bennett brings an incredible work ethic and combines with high end skill, hockey sense and skating ability.”  Following Bennett is Sam Reinhart, who topped our previous list in February. Reinhart posted big point totals this season and flashed his smarts, scoring ability and play making skills.
