In advance of next week's U18 World Championships and the final rounds of playoffs in North America, NHL Central Scouting has released their final set of draft rankings for this summer's NHL Draft.

The full list is here.

Of note, Quebec forward Pierre Luc-Dubois has overtaken American Matt Tkachuk as the top-ranked North American skater, though the top three European skaters likely out-rank both on any combined list.

The top-ranked player with NCAA ties is Boston University's Charlie McAvoy, who jumped from ninth to sixth on the NA skaters list. Others with NCAA ties to make the top 30 were: 9. Clayton Keller 10. Kieffer Bellows 11. Luke Kunin 16. Tyson Jost 17. Riley Tufte 18.Dante Fabbro 20. Tage Thompson 23. Dennis Cholowski

The only NCAA goalie to make the top-10 on the goalie list was Boston College commit Joseph Woll.

This year's NHL Draft will be held June 24-25 in Buffalo, New York.
