The lists get updated at various points through the upcoming months, but here is one article focusing on some touted players:

Not even two months after the 2013 NHL entry draft, player rankings are already popping up for the 2014 draft class.

Barrie Colts defender Aaron Ekblad topped International Scouting Service’s preliminary ranking. Past the OHL rearguard, Kootenay Ice centre Sam Reinhart, Sweden’s Anton Karlsson and William Nylander, and Calgary Hitmen winger Jake Virtanen closed out the top five in that respective order.

Mckeen’s Hockey preliminary top-30 ranking looks a lot different from ISS’s list. They have Nylander leading the way with Reinhart behind him and Ekblad all the way down at seventh overall. In addition, they have Kingston Frontenacs defenceman Ronald McKeown, who wasn’t in ISS’s top 15, ranked fifth and NTDP forward Ryan MacInnis, who wasn’t ranked by ISS either, pegged sixth overall.

Here is a look at BTN’s preliminary 2014 draft list. This ranking is based on a compilation of Mckeen’s Hockey and International Scouting Service’s draft lists.
  • Sam Reinhart, centre, Kootenay Ice (WHL)
  • William Nylander, centre, Rogle (Allsvenskan)
  • Aaron Ekblad, defence, Barrie Colts (OHL)
  • Anton Karlsson, wing, Frolunda (SuperElit)
