The NHL Draft doesn’t get as much love as its counterparts in the NBA or NFL. That’s because we see those draftees play in college, in the NFL’s case for a few years, while the NHL Draft features a lot of kids coming from junior teams and Europe. However, a great draft pick can help an NHL team right off the bat. Rasmus Dahlin was the first pick for the Buffalo Sabres in 2018, and while they didn’t make the playoffs, the Swedish defenseman was a huge boon on the blue line. You think that the Capitals and Penguins would be where they are without Alex Ovechkin or Sidney Crosby, respectively? You don't even need the top pick to get a great prospect, especially in this draft.

This is a little video about my top 15 picks for the 2019 nhl draft in june. These picks may change, but these are the current one before world cup and u18.

A look at the prospects projected to be drafted in the first round of the 2019 NHL Entry Draft . They are able to spend the winter cheering for a team that is pushing towards the playoffs while simultaneously keeping an eye on the top of the 2019 draft rankings.

Here’s our first look at the top 10 prospects for the 2019 NHL Draft, set for June, which is headlined by a one-two punch that is starting to cause debate.

1. Jack Hughes, C, US U18 NTDP

While there are murmurs about Hughes not being the top pick in this draft, we aren’t biting on that just yet. Sure, at 5-foot-10 and 170 pounds, he’s not giant. There’s a chance that in the NHL he will move to the wing. You know who is another American forward with a ton of skill who ended up on the wing in part because of his size? Patrick Kane. And Hughes could be that caliber of player at the next level with his elite speed and talent. He put up 112 points in 50 games for the U.S. under-18 team, breaking records left and right. Yes, it’s a little dull when a prospect goes wire to wire as the clear top guy in the draft, but don’t overthink it. Hughes is the best player in this draft class.

NBA Draft 2019: Knicks prefer Ja Morant over RJ Barrett, report says

NBA Draft 2019: Knicks prefer Ja Morant over RJ Barrett, report says Knicks team president Steve Mills doesn't appear to have ruled out trading their top pick, as he dodged a question about the option Friday. “We’re here to evaluate the players that are here and we’ll keep moving along in our process,’’ Mills said. Memphis is reportedly leaning toward selecting Morant with the No. 2 pick though, so the Knicks are making sure they evaluate and interview top talent thoroughly. "It’s been a good week for us,’’ Mills told reporters Friday. “As a group, we have a lot of guys here meeting the young players. We probably have interviewed 30 different guys over the course of time here.

2. Kaapo Kakko, RW, TPS

That being said, Kakko would make a wonderful consolation prize and would be the best prospect in several past draft classes. The Finn notched 38 points in 45 games in his home country’s top league. Only two players his age, Aleksander Barkov and Mikael Granlund, have managed more. While you would perhaps be a smidge disappointed to get a Granlund with your top pick, everybody would love a Barkov. Kakko also has impressed at the World Championships, which is helping to fuel the argument that he belongs above Hughes.

3. Kirby Dach, C, Saskatoon Blades

You want that prototype big center? Dach is your guy. He stands 6-foot-4 and weighs a hair under 200 pounds, but despite his size he has deft hands and is a sharp passer. That calls to mind Joe Thornton, though that comparison would be a bit of a stretch. Still, the kid is the kind of pivot you can build around, and he should get even bigger and stronger as he fills out.

NBA Draft 2019: North Carolina's Nassir Little wants to showcase his full skillset

NBA Draft 2019: North Carolina's Nassir Little wants to showcase his full skillset "I think I shoot better than I showcased at UNC," Little told 247Sports on Friday when asked about his collegiate struggles. "I can handle the ball better. That’s pretty much it — everything else you guys already know." The 6-6 forward shot just 26.9 percent from behind the arc in his lone season with the Tar Heels. He averaged 9.8 points and 4.6 rebounds in 2018-19 and couldn't quite crack the starting lineup, despite being ranked the nation's No. 2 recruit in the class of 2018, according to 247Sports.

4. Bowen Byram, D, Vancouver Giants

Byram is the consensus best defenseman in this year’s class. His stock has been on the rise because he led the WHL in playoff scoring by putting up 26 points in 22 games in Vancouver’s effort to win the title. It fell one game short, losing in overtime to Prince Albert in Game 7, but being a top-five pick would be a nice consolation prize.

5. Alex Turcotte, C, US U18 NTDP

This is a huge year for America’s developmental program. As many as six of its players could be drafted in the first half of the first round. It was an injury-marred year for Turcotte, but he was able to turn heads at the U18 World Championship. There are some concerns that he might be a product of his teammates, but he also averaged 1.68 points per game this season when healthy.

6. Cole Caufield, RW, US U18 NTDP

Caufield is destined to be the most polarizing prospect in this class, as all he does is score. He netted 72 goals in 64 games this season for his team. When playing for the American squad at the U18 World Championships, he scored a whopping 14 more goals, tying Alex Ovechkin for the most ever in one tournament. These are great numbers, but here is a concerning one: 67. That’s Caufield’s height in inches. He’s only 5-foot-7, which is strikingly short for the NHL. (He’s shorter than Martin St. Louis.) Only two players his height have ever been drafted in the first round. Caufield will have to break a trend, but the league has gotten more speed-based and less physicality-based. In the modern era, a prospect like Caufield can make it work.

Regardless of order, the top two picks are predetermined, though there’s plenty of debate remaining as to which name is called first: Jack Hughes Here’s the lottery edition of the 2019 NHL Draft Rankings. 1.

2 Top prospects . 3 Draft lottery. 4 Traded picks. Ice hockey players born between January 1, 1999, and September 15, 2001, are eligible for selection in the 2019 NHL Entry Draft .

7. Dylan Cozens, C, Lethbridge Hurricanes

Cozens is basically the opposite kind of prospect compared to Caufield. He didn’t put up gaudy numbers, but he is a center who stands 6-foot-3 and weighs 180 pounds. Cozens can also skate like the wind. He didn’t have great teammates around him on Lethbridge, but he still managed 84 points, which was the most of any under-18 player in the WHL. Put him on the right roster, and the numbers should be there.

8. Vasili Podkolzin, RW, Neva St. Petersburg

Podkolzin had a weird season. He played across three levels in Russia, including a three-game cup of coffee with the KHL’s SKA St. Petersburg in which the Russian failed to register a point. He had three points in seven games at the World Junior Championship. So why the intrigue? Because Podkolzin doesn’t even turn 18 until June 24. He played in the KHL as a 17-year-old. Imagine how hyped you’d be if there were a 17-year-old in Triple-A baseball. It’s kind of like that.

9. Trevor Zegras, C, US U18 NTDP

Zegras is one of those players who could stickhandle in a phone booth, although there’s a chance the 18-year-old has never seen an actual phone booth. We’re all getting old. He has great hands and real skill as a passer. That helped him pick up nine assists at the World U18 tourney.

10. Philip Broberg, D, AIK

If Broberg were a baseball prospect, they’d say he was “tooled up.” Some consider him the best skater among defensemen in this draft class, even though he’s 6-foot-3 and 200 pounds. The Swede was named the best defenseman at the U18 championships. If Broberg lives up to his potential, he’ll be a real star. This is partially a bet on physical skill, but the results have been there as well.
