Prospects Analysis: Metropolitan Division

Prospects Analysis: Metropolitan Division

This article is part of our Prospects Analysis series.

This is the first of a four-part series that will cover, dissect, and rank the top prospects of each NHL organization. I covered 15 prospects for each club along with a potential sleeper. Some NHL organizations have considerably more than 15 players who project as potential assets down the line while other clubs barely made it to double digits. 

If a player has a number next to his name, it represents his overall ranking in our top-200. Scouting reports for the top-100 can be found here...

Part 2

Note: Players with 25 games or more of regular-season NHL experience are not eligible for this list. 

Overview: No team in the NHL had a better 2019 draft than the Hurricanes. They found value all over the place, and the end result was Carolina finishing with 11 players in my top-200 (tied with the Flyers), trailing only Los Angeles. Carolina's system is a tad light on defensive prospects, but that is an area of strength on their current NHL roster. The addition of Chase Priskie in August gave this group a much-needed boost on the back end.
