NORTH AMERICAN SKATERS
A look at where they rank in the '06 Draft


There are over 500 hopefuls in the NHL Entry Draft this year and only 210 picks scattered between the 30 clubs in the league. In an attempt to cut through the clutter, the NHL's Central Scouting Service ranks the top players eligible to be drafted in four different categories: European Goalies, European Skaters, North American Goalies and North American Skaters.

 

Here's Central Scouting's top-30 North American skaters:
