The 2024 NHL Entry Draft is set to begin tomorrow night in Las Vegas, with the San Jose Sharks picking 1st overall. It’s no surprise Macklin Celebrini is my number one prospect in the draft, but as soon as we get to the Chicago Blackhawks, who pick at second overall, things can get pretty crazy with the top half of the first round being so tight between prospects.

After travelling to numerous arenas throughout the season and watching lots of film leading up to the draft, here is my Top 100 Prospects for the 2024 NHL Entry-Draft.

Despite this draft class being labelled as “not as strong” as previous year’s prior to the season, I must say I was extremely impressed throughout the year with how much talent will be available tomorrow evening. I’d say picks ranging from 2-20 are higher calibre prospects, but there certainly are lots of names to watch for throughout the second and third rounds.
