from Sam Cosentino of Sportsnet,

So, with some players on the ice playing and others waiting to get started, here is our first look at the Top 32 prospects for the 2021 NHL Draft.

1. Owen Power, D, U of Michigan (NCAA): Playing big minutes in all situations in a great program as a freshman is a rarity, especially for a defenceman.

2. Carson Lambos, D, Winnipeg Ice (WHL): Impressive WHL point totals (32 in 57 games) last season considering he was tasked with the toughest match-ups defensively as a rookie.

3. Simon Edvinsson, D, Frolunda Jr. (SWE): Confident avoiding the first wave of the forecheck before effectively moving the puck. Gets around the ice with ease.

4. Dylan Guenther, RW, Edmonton Oil Kings (WHL): The 2019-20 WHL Rookie of the Year is highly skilled and a point-producing machine.

5. Brandt Clarke, D, Barrie Colts (OHL): Assertive defenceman who is never afraid to join and stay in the rush.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
