2022 NHL Consensus Draft Rankings

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports


Another year and another set of draft rankings. 5th one now for me. Back then I could find one outlet doing what I was doing at more than a 1st round set of results. Now I can find a half dozen such as myself. Many of our results close. As for the framework; nothing has changed from last year really.

1. I used 24 sources this year which seems to be the most out there. No mocks. No random people on twitter. Every one used is either a major outlet that most people interested in such things would know or people working for those outlets in the scouting world.

2. I like to give the average, mode, and median as it was suggested I do so at one point. I also put the high and low ranking

3. The sources this year are 18 that give 3rd roundish (90) or more. For those I give the actual number and then stop around 105-125 depending on what's provided by the source. Everyone not ranked by then gets the next round number past 10 (ie 115) so you will see a bunch of players who's "low" is 105, 115, and 125. That just means they were not on at least one list. Omitting those unranked players reduces accuracy (ie drives their average down) so I feel it's important to have some number there. The other 6 rankings include 4 first round only and a couple at 50 and 75. For those I do not assign a number to the ones not on those lists as that again would reduce accuracy by giving for too many players way lower numbers then they could have all gotten had the list kept going.

4. I was tracking about 175 players that these sources put out there and trimmed the final list down to 125. Nobody that was trimmed had more than 1 second round ranking. Many I kept didn't as well but around 125 is when players were not just on one or two lists but started being on a bunch of them.

Anyway. Here is this years consensus rankings.
