The NHL's top prospects are showcased on TSN as Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie unveils his draft ranking in the 30-minute live special Bob McKenzie's NHL Draft Prospect Rankings, tonight at 10:30pm et/7:30pm pt on TSN.
Host James Duthie joins McKenzie in the TSN studio as they count down the list of the consensus Top 30 draft prospects - the definitive measuring stick on where players rank in the run-up to the 2013 NHL Draft. TSN Scout Craig Button makes his picks for the best in the draft class in five key categories: Ice Q, hands, skating, shooting, and competitiveness. Bob McKenzie's NHL Draft Prospect Rankings also features a live intermission interview with top prospect Seth Jones, a defenceman with the Portland Winterhawks, who are facing off against the Kamloops Blazers on Wednesday.
Jones was ranked No. 2 in McKenzie's pre-season draft rankings back in September and has racked up nine goals and 25 assists this season in the Western Hockey League. Jones won a gold medal as a member of Team USA at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship.
The 30-minute live special also includes a feature on Jonathan Drouin of the Halifax Mooseheads, who played for Team Canada at the 2013 IIHF World Junior Championship and is averaging two points per game in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League this season.
