Yogi should definitely be in the top 20. People soured on him because he was sent to the ECHL to start the season, but he's done well since he has gotten called back up. He doesn't have a lot of offensive creativity, but his size, shot and skating are on an NHL level. He isn't doing that well because he's lost playing against adults and needs to improve his hockey IQ and on-ice awareness. He also needs to work on his defensive play because his bread-and-butter will be on the bottom-6.

Depending on how teachable he is, Yogi can wind up anywhere from an NHL third liner to an AHL 4th liner.
