Kyle Clifford will be joining the Toronto Maple Leafs for his second stint with the team after a trade from the St. Louis Blues. Clifford was traded to the Maple Leafs originally at the trade deadline in 2020. Now in his second season with Toronto, he will hopefully find more success than the first time around. The best part about this deal for the Leafs is that he was essentially traded for free. All they have to do to acquire him is pay his salary. Clifford carries a cap hit of $1 million.

The Detroit Red Wings are facing uncertainty after losing captain Dylan Larkin to COVID-19 protocol.  They packed up and headed to Vegas without Larkin after Tuesday's 5-2 loss against the Stars, which Larkin did not finish because he was removed after the second period.  Coach Jeff Blashill had few answers in the immediate aftermath at American Airlines Center, but said there would be a "sequence of things. Right now he's out for COVID protocol."

  1.(1)  Shane Wright, C, Kingston Frontenacs (OHL): Don’t be concerned about point totals (eight points in eight games), focus on the details, and you see a first overall pick all day long.

  2.(5)  Logan Cooley, C, USNTDP: Nice little six-game goal streak featured markers against both USHL and NCAA competition.

  3.(4)  Joakim Kemell, LW, JYP (Liiga): Is on pace to put forth one of the best U18 seasons in the history of Finland’s top pro league.

  4.(3)  Juraj Slafkovsky, LW, TPS Turku (Liiga): Has a number of weapons he can use to score, be it off the rush, with the one-timer or getting to the net front.

  5.(8)  Matthew Savoie, C, Winnipeg Ice (WHL): No denying the puck skills and amazing playmaking ability. Creativity is what will allow him to overcome size (5-foot-9).

  6.      Simon Nemec    D, Nitra (NVK)

  7.(9)  Danila Yurov, RW, Magnitogorsk (KHL): A new-aged Russian player who competes hard all over the ice and doesn’t sacrifice offence to do so.

  8.(2)  Ivan Miroshnichenko, LW, Omsk (VHL): Extremely strong and powerful skater who possesses a deadly shot and the know-how to get into position to use it.

  9.      Jonathon Lakkerimaki RW, Djurgardens (SWE J-20)

10.      Ty Nelson     D, North Bay (OHL)

11.(7). Conor Geekie, C, Winnipeg Ice (WHL): Even when not producing, can still impact the game by either playing physically or matching up against the opposition’s best.

12.      Liam Ohgren   LW, Djurgardens (SWE J-20)

13(6)   David Jiricek, D, HC Plzen (Extraliiga): As a defenceman, he will have added value in this draft class that’s full of high-end forwards.

28(10) Isaac Howard, LW, USNTDP: Has ability to find open ice to utilize his array of finishing skills.

I just kept the original 10 & filled in the gaps.

Brackets were previous ranking.
