We're back for the 2nd annual CDC Draft Rankings!

General Information

As per normal, the vote will be specific to the team drafting in that slot, you will have 10 players to choose from in the vote

(starting with the top 10 players ranked in the ISS Top 30 draft eligible players) . Make your choice not only by skill, but by team needs as well. Every couple of days I will create a new thread with the results of the vote, and a new vote for the next team. I will also post information about the next 5 players in the ISS top 30. Below the team's logo, you can click to see their current prospects over at Hockey's Future to have more organizational insight. Enjoy and make sure to come back for each vote!

(Remember that you're voting for what team will pick who in their position. Not just what team should draft what player.)

Congratulations to Daniel Sprong and Jake Debrusk for being selected 26th and 27th overall respectively by the Montreal Canadiens and the Anaheim Ducks!

Who will the Tampa Bay Lightning select 28th overall?


Current Lightning Prospects

According to the ISS Rankings, these are the next top 5 draft eligible players.


Brandon Carlo is an industrious, shift-by-shift defenceman who lets the game come to him rather than chasing the play; he is able to quickly adapt to the pace of the game on the fly. Through maneuvering his way around the ice and making high-percentage, skilled decisions in all three zones, he is able to shut opposition offense down before it begins to take shape. Carlo is a smooth skater who can control the puck very well and get into open areas for scoring chances; that being said, he does and will need help finding offense due to his natural defensive style of play. All-in-all, a towering, defensive d-man that has very few holes in his game and is physically ready to make the next step. Source

Jeremy Bracco

Age: 18

Birthplace: Freeport, NY, USA

Position: Centre/Right Wing

Height: 5'9

Weight: 172 lbs

Current League: NCAA: Boston College (2015-2016 Season)

Player Info: He's small, that's for sure. Coming in at 5'9" 172 lbs, he would be considered too small for the NHL by scouts, coaches, general managers, analysts, and the list goes on. With his lack of size, Jeremy Bracco nullifies it with his incredible offensive skill. Perhaps he is small, but he's hard to get off the puck due to his elite skating and stride. Once he gets going, it's difficult to catch up. He strikes me so much of what Patrick Kane was when he was at his age, but Bracco has found a bit more success oddly enough. Kane put up 68 points (33 goals, 35 assists) with the U.S. National U18 Team, while Bracco put up 94 points (30 goals, 64 assists.) Source

Noah Juulsen

Age: 18

Birthplace: Abbotsford, BC, CAN

Position: Defence

Height: 6'1

Weight: 176 lbs

Current League: WHL: Everett Silvertips

Player Info: A solid two-way defender, Noah Juulsen is able to force plays and always find ways to support his teammates. Juulsen is a smooth, yet not dynamic skater, and is mobile when he needs to be. Plays with a chip on his shoulder, and isn't afraid to take the hit to make the play. Sees the ice well and has the individual skills to carry out the possibilities he sees. Very poised with the puck; calm and controls the play with authority. Has good hands. Without the puck and in high-pressure situations, Juulsen tends to overthink things and can try to do a little too much; that will go away with time and maturity. All-in-all, an impactful presence on the ice that strives to be difficult to play against; given how hard he works and how smart he is with the puck, he can be a very difficult player to read with and without the puck.

Gabriel Carlsson

Age: 18

Birthplace: Örebro, SWE

Position: Defence

Height: 6'4

Weight: 183 lbs

Current League: SHL: Linköping (2015-2016 Season)

Player Info: The best part of Gabriel Carlsson's game, is his play in his own end of the rink. He has excellent positioning, and his hockey IQ is very high. He anticipates plays well, cutting down passing lanes witha long stick, and creating transitions with a good first pass. Carlsson's big body is an asset as he is willing to play a physical game, throwing its, fighting for loose pucks, and clearing the front of the net. Source

Jacob Larsson

Age: 18

Birthplace: Ljungby, SWE

Position: Defence

Height: 6'2

Weight: 190 lbs

Current League: SHL: Frölunda (2015-2016 Season)

Player Info: Jacob Larsson is a very good skater. He has a very smooth stride, which generates very good top end speed and strong acceleration in both directions. His edgework, pivots, and agility are all extremely good, making Larsson a very difficult defender to beat one-on-one off the rush. He is strong on his skates and has good balance, allowing him to be physical in puck battles and in clearing the crease. He is tough to knock off the puck when he has it on his stick. Source
