McKenzie: Hockey fans will soon know the name Hanifin

The 2015 NHL Draft is billed as the Connor McDavid Draft. Or Connor McDavid vs. Jack Eichel.

Ekblad heads up TSN's Top 60 Final NHL Draft Rankings

The 2014 NHL draft class can be forgiven for feeling as though it has a case of middle-child syndrome. Which is to say, the top of this year's draft class is not as dynamic as the 2013 class or as promising as the 2015 class. That said, the scouts tell TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie it's rock solid. Barrie Colt defenceman Aaron Ekblad is No. 1 on TSN's Top 60 Final Rankings, a position he's owned or had a share of since last September. ...more

MacKinnon tops McKenzie's Final Draft Rankings

In an NHL season of wild momentum swings and dramatic finishes, perhaps we shouldn't be surprised the race for No. 1 in the NHL Draft has been a wild ride of its own, with a series of entertaining twists and turns. As TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie writes, Halifax Moosehead centre Nathan MacKinnon started the 2012-13 season as TSN's consensus top prospect and that is precisely where he'll finish it. ...more

McKenzie: Jones top prospect in TSN's NHL Draft Rankings

McKenzie: Maple Leafs could add veteran in net under right circumstances

With each passing day, the Toronto Maple Leafs are looking more and more like a playoff team, and with each passing hour towards Wednesday's 3pm et/Noon pt trade deadline, the Leafs look like a team that would, under the right circumstances, like to add a veteran goaltender with playoff experience. The key phrase there is "under the right circumstances." TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie has more. ...more

McKenzie: Underage players proving their worth around NHL
