Prospects Rankings and Movement

With the college season essentially over (at least for Islanders prospects) I thought it would at their rankings both within the prospects pool and for their position*.

*Because forwards are split into LW-C-RW I’ve also split defensemen into LHD and RHD for positional rankings.

Collin Adams (C)
Overall: 16/27
Position: 4/8

The guys ranking above him in the prospect pool are Koivula, Iskhakov, and Bibeau. Based on an eye test Adams could jump above Bibeau for third in the center pool for the Isles. We’ll see when (and if) the Islanders sign him. They could wait until the season is done (they have till August 15) to avoid burning a year.

Logan Cockerill (C)
Overall: 23/27
Position: 7/8

The ranking is fair for Cockerill who hasn’t been particularly productive until just this year. I’d assume he becomes a winger at the AHL level.

Alex Jefferies (LW)
Overall: 14/27
Position: 3/6

Great freshman year for the Isles fourth-round pick in 2020. It was short but very productive for Jefferies. I’m excited for his sophomore year. Assuming the pandemic is over, he could play his first full collegiate season.

Jacob Pivonka (C)
Overall: 26/27
Position: 8/8

The production isn’t there for the junior, but he’s a dominant player in the faceoff dot. He’ll certainly return for his senior year where he’ll get more responsibilities for Notre Dame.

Christian Krygier (LHD)
Overall: 27/27
Position: 7/7

Good shutdown D. He doesn’t put up numbers so that ranking may not be fair to his skillset.

Ben Mirageas (LHD)
Overall: 20/27
Position: 5/7

It was another good year for Ben Mirageas. It wouldn’t surprise me to see him sign an AHL deal a bit later in the year.
