NHL Central Scouting announced its final rankings ahead of the 2020 NHL Draft on Wednesday, which included Oil Kings forwards Jake Neighbours and Josh Williams.
Neighbours, from Airdrie, AB, was ranked 26th among North American skaters, after being listed 30th on NHL Central Scoutings Midterm Rankings in January.
Williams, a Langley, BC native in his second year of NHL Draft eligibility, was ranked 210th among North American skaters, and was also featured in the Midterm Rankings (149th) earlier this year.
The final rankings feature the top 217 skaters and 31 goaltenders in North America, as well as the top 140 skaters and ten goaltenders internationally.
The 2020 NHL Draft, which was originally scheduled for June 26-27 in Montreal, has been postponed due to the ongoing uncertainty resulting from the coronavirus. The location, timing and format of the 2020 NHL Draft (and Draft Lottery) will be announced once details are finalized.
