After a season with only a few high-end prospects in their system, the St. Louis Blues will enjoy a  deeper prospect pipeline heading into the 2014-15 season. A major help in replenishing the prospect pool was the 2014 NHL Draft, where the Blues made 10 picks, including six in the first four rounds. With the current depth on the Blues’ roster, many of their prospects will spend time at other levels of hockey to improve their overall game.
