Here’s a look at our top 10 prospects from the Western Hockey League for the 2013 NHL Draft, a group that includes a very top-heavy batch of elite defensemen. All players in our ranking attended the NHL Combine last month.
There is a definite Canadian presence in our ranking. There are four players who have honed their skills through minor hockey in Calgary, Alberta. Two players hail from both Manitoba and British Columbia, while one each from the United States and Switzerland add international flavor to our ranking.
