When discussing the highlights of the latest Top 50 list, Ken McKenna, Managing Editor of Hockey’s Future said,
“This ranking of the Top 50 NHL prospects for the Spring of 2015 features a top, two-way center in the form of Buffalo Sabres prospect Sam Reinhart as the top-ranked player. Ranked second is goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy, a big goaltender with good athletic ability, while third-ranked prospect Nikolaj Ehlers is an exciting forward with above-average offensive skills. Despite the graduation of some top prospects from the Fall list, the top group in this ranking is still a high-end group. “
