The National Hockey League has released its final rankings for the 2014 Draft, with centre Samuel Bennett of the Ontario Hockey League's Kingston Frontenacs leading the list of North American skaters once again.
Bennett, who tallied 36 goals and 91 points this season, was also the top-ranked North American skater in the league's mid-term rankings in January.
Barrie Colts defenceman Aaron Ekblad and Kootenay Ice centre Sam Reinhart are ranked second and third respectively, just ahead of German-born Leon Draisaitl of the WHL's Prince Albert Raiders.
Kasperi Kapanen and William Nylander are the top-ranked skaters among European players, while Boston College's Thatcher Demko is the No. 1-rated goaltender in North America.
The 2014 NHL Draft will be held in Philadelphia on June 27 and June 28.
