FCHockey releases preliminary ranking for 2024 NHL Draft

Macklin Celebrini of Boston University and Cole Eiserman of the US National Team Development Program, two top prospects for the 2024 NHL Draft, have received ‘A’ grades as potential first-round picks in FCHockey’s Preliminary ranking released Tuesday.

In all, 32 skaters have received an ‘A’ grade  in FCHockey’s preliminary ranking, while 59 skaters received a ‘B’ grade as potential second or third-round picks. An additional 48 players received a ‘C’ grade as potential fourth or fifth-round picks, and 91 skaters received a ‘D’ grade as sixth or seventh-round picks.

The list is a compilation of draft-eligible prospects from all regions gathered by FCHockey’s regional and video scouts. FCHockey’s Winter ranking for the 2023 draft will consist of a top-100 ranking.

FCHOCKEY’S PRELIMINARY RANKING FOR THE 2024 NHL DRAFT

Celebrini, who had 15 points (six goals, nine assists) for Canada as a 16-year-old at the 2023 IIHF World Under-18 Championship in April, led the United States Hockey League in scoring in 2022-23 with 86 points (46 goals, 40 assists) in 50 games with the Chicago Steel. He will play the 2023-24 season with Boston University in the NCAA.

Eiserman, who scored nine goals in seven games at the Under-18s for Team USA, netted 69 goals in 62 games with the NTDP last season — second in program history behind the 72 goals scored by Cole Caufield in 2018-19.

Also included as ‘A’ ranked skaters is Russian forward Ivan Demidov, Belarussian defenseman Artyom Levshunov, Canadians Sam Dickinson and Berkly Catton, Finnish forward Konsta Helenius, and Czech defenseman Adam Jiricek.
