NextGen Hockey’s Final 2019 NHL Draft Rankings

It’s crunch time. The 2019 NHL Entry Draft is just two days away, and teams are making their final adjustments to their draft boards, readying themselves for the annual reaping of talent that is the Draft.

Here at NextGen Hockey, we’ve been pumping out deep dive-style prospect reports on dozens of draft eligible prospects. It’s only natural that a website dedicated to evaluating prospect have a list of its own. Honestly, it’s well past due – we intended to have one out weeks ago, but such is life when it comes to draft season.

I won’t do a lengthy preamble here, as plenty of digital ink has been spilled on these prospects already. I’ll just make a couple of notes.

  1. As the co-founders of the site, Ryan Biech and I have each done lists of 100 prospects and merged those lists to form a site rankings. I have also included the ranking the we each gave to the individual prospects, so you can get a better idea of we were higher on and who we were lower on.
  2. Where applicable, links have been embedded to published prospect profiles.
  3. A bevy of stats have been included with this table, replacing the presently-out-of-date Profile Stats page. Definitions of the various metrics used are given below.
  4. We are fully cognizant of the fact that it would be much more convenient if the table had frozen columns on its left side – it’s something that we’re continuing to look into.

A Rundown of the Statistical Measures Used

What follows is a brief description of each of the stats referenced in the tables below.

  • Age: Exact age to two decimal points, calculated as of September 15th, 2018. That date is used for draft purposes – anyone with an exact age greater than or equal to 17.00 and less than 18.00 as of that date will be eligible for the first time at the 2019 draft.

Production Measures

  • Box Cars: GP, G, A, P stand for the standard Games Played, Goals, Assists, and Points, during the 2018-19 regular season.
  • INV%: Involvement Percentage, or the percentage of team goals that the player had a point on. This has been a pretty standard prospect measurement for a while (I even use a variation of it within my pGPS model), but I particularly like this title for the metric, which was coined by @scouching.
  • 5v5 PrINV%: Similar to INV%, but this metric considers only 5-on-5 team goals that the player had a primary point (a goal or first assist) on.
  • ePrP60: Estimated primary points per 60 at 5-on-5. Estimated in conjunction with the eTOI metric described below.
  • SEAL: The SEAL adjusted scoring value. SEAL stands for Situational, Era, Age, and League. Here’s a rundown of the current iteration of SEAL, which evolved from a technique that Garret Hohl pioneered for the 2015 draft.
  • Sh/GP: Shots on goal per games played.
  • Sh%: Shooting percentage.

On-Ice Measures

  • eTOI: Estimated 5-on-5 Time on Ice. I have switched over to using Hayden Speak’s method of estimating time-on-ice (the on-ice goals version), described here on prospect-stats.com.
  • GF%: Percentage of 5-on-5 on-ice goals scored in favour of the player’s team.
  • GF%rel: The difference between the player’s on-ice GF% relative to the team’s GF% when the player is off the ice.
  • GD60rel: Relative goal differential per 60 minutes, based on eTOI. This differs from GF%rel above by taking into account ice time. When there are two players with the same GF%rel, the one that gets more ice time will be of greater benefit or detriment to his team. GD60rel accounts for this.

Cohort Measures

pGPS is an ever-evolving metric, and while the principles of the model stay roughly the same, the formulations and terminology change from time to time. The following are the definitions of the statistics used in the latest version, which is described in detail here.

  • XLS is Expected Likelihood of Success for the player, based on how similar players performed at the NHL level. Rather than the likelihood of simply playing games in the lineup, this number purports to measure the likelihood of being a regular fixture on the top four lines or top three defence pairs.
  • Top XLS is the Expected Likelihood of Top 6/Top 4 Success. Similar to the XLS percentage above, this version predicts the likelihood of the player being a top six forward or top four defenceman.
  • XPR is Expected Production Rate, the weighted average prime production rate per 82 games of statistical matches that played at least 100 NHL games.

Availability of Metrics

Certain metrics are only available for certain leagues, depending on how easily available the data is to the public. I spent a good portion of my spare time over the past several months developing scrapers for new leagues, meaning that we have more information at our fingertips than ever before. Here’s a run down on which metrics are available in which leagues.

  • pGPS: I can run pGPS data on about 20 leagues right now, so at the top of the draft, it’s easier just to say which leagues it doesn’t do. For the purposes of this list, the missing leagues are: the VHL (Russian tier 2 league), MHL (Russian Junior), SM-Liiga Nuorten (Finnish Junior), and the US High School circuit.
  • SEAL: Dependent on availability of situational scoring data. SEAL adjustments are currently available for all CHL leagues (WHL, OHL, QMJHL), BCHL, USHL, NCAA, SHL, Allsvenskan, VHL, MHL, Finnish SM-Liiga, Czech Extraliga, and J20 Superelit.
  • INV%, GF% and GF%rel: Dependent on availability of on-ice records for goals on game sheets. Currently available for all the leagues listed above under SEAL, with the exception of the BCHL, where on-ice players are not included recorded for goals on the game sheets.

  1. I’m sure you can’t do player profiles on everybody but I was hoping to see an article on Moritz Seider.

    1. We intended to get one out on Seider before the draft – didn’t get to it unfortunately. We will have one up soon for him.

  2. Thanks for this. Any plans to do profiles for everyone drafted in the first round?

    1. I think that we’ll be revisiting at least a few missing ones. Some of them are nearly done, others not so close. In any case, we intend to do reviews of the draft from team perspectives as well.
