Below is the list of all NCAA-bound players that appeared on NHL Central Scouting’s final rankings whose commitments (verbal or otherwise) to college programs have been verified. Players with an “N/A” appeared in the midterm rankings, but were not included in the final rankings (although they have been noted on it).

In addition, many of these players were chosen at the 2014 NHL Draft, with the NHL team designation included next to the player’s name.

Unless indicated otherwise, all players listed are expected to be with their respective programs this fall. Although every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, this listing may not be completely up to date.
