"Game Time" Prospect Sunday: THE '14 FILE, May 11, 2014

New, comments

Your "Game Time" Prospect Department compiled the results of seven different mock drafts to arrive at "consensus" rankings. Presented here are the players who are "consensus" choices for the last third of the first round, which is where the Blues will be picking... as long as they do not re-sign Ryan Miller, or trade his rights, before the draft.

======================================================================

For this week's edition of "The '14 File," we compiled the results of seven different mock drafts, and averaged out the draft positions of each player mentioned in each of the mocks. The mock drafts used for this analysis were:

-- NHL.com Eastern Conference Scout mock draft, published 03-25-14.

-- NHL.com Western Conference Scout mock draft, published 03-25-14.

-- NHL.com Adam Kimelman mock draft v.2, published 04-04-14.

-- NHL.com Mike Morreale mock draft v.2, published 04-04-14.

-- NHL.com Steven Hoffner mock draft v.2, published 04-04-14.

-- International Scouting Services' Top 30 for April, released 04-15-14.

-- Mock Draft at MyNHLDraft.com, updated 05-05-14.

The chart below lists every player who graded out at 20th overall or below, the player's highest and lowest ranking, the number of mocks in which the player was mentioned, and his average score.
