Hockey Writers January Ranking

The Ranking: January Edition Well, here it is, my first ranking of the new year. With six months remaining until the draft, expect to see a ton of movement within this list in the coming months, and especially as prospects continue to make their case as elite young players. Of course, each and every ranking is simply opinion, so feel free to agree or disagree with my ranking in the comments section below.
