The Spring edition of the Hockey’s Future ranking of the Top 50 NHL prospects begins with the prospects ranked 41 thru 50. This section of the ranking features prospects at various levels of their development, including a few who saw some time in the NHL during the 2014-15 season.
This first group of 10 prospects includes seven forwards, two defensemen, and one goaltender. Five of the prospects played most or all of the season in junior hockey, two played NCAA hockey, two played pro hockey, and one played in Europe.
None of the included players in this group were ranked in the Fall edition of the Top 50, but several have been honorable mentions in the past. If a player from this Top 50 list was ranked in the Fall rankings, that ranking will be shown in parentheses next to the player’s name.
