TSN's Bob McKenzie Releases Mid-Term Draft Rankings

Thatcher Demko came in at 32 on Bob McKenzie's mid-season list - Bruce Bennett

Four NCAA prospects crack the top 30

Bob McKenzie of TSN released his mid-term draft rankings on Thursday night for the upcoming 2014 NHL Draft. McKenzie's list is 100% based on a survey of scouts and other decision makers in the National Hockey League, and the end result is that his list usually looks the closest to what will actually happen on draft day.

No NCAA players were listed among the first 15 spots, but quite a few featured in the back half of the first round. Boston College had the two highest NCAA recruits on the list in Sonny Milano at 16th and Alex Tuch at 19th. Michigan recruit Dylan Larkin was right behind Tuch in the 20th spot, while North Dakota recruit Nick Schmaltz was 25th.

Boston College goalie Thatcher Demko came in at 32 on the list, Four NTDP defensemen fell into the 31-50 range: Wisconsin recruit Jack Dougherty was 33rd, Minnesota recruit Jack Glover was 44th, Boston University recruit Jon McLeod was 45th, and Minnesota recruit Ryan Collins was 47th. Uncommitted forward Ryan Donato, son of Harvard head coach Ted Donato, was ranked at 46th.

New Hampshire recruit Warren Foegele--drawing comparisons as this year's Mark Jankowski, a player that comes out of nowhere from a small Canadian prep school--and Providence commit Jake Walman, were both mentioned under players given 'Honourable Mention'.

Other Americans to make their way onto the list were: Anthony DeAngelo(26), Ryan MacInnis(36), Connor Chatham(40), Alex Nedeljkovic(42), Chase DeLeo(48), and Aaron Haydon(HM). One-time North Dakota commit Brendan Lemieux was also ranked 37th on the list.
