2012 NHL Draft Consensus Top 100 - November Update

Colton Sissions is a name to remember for the 2012 NHL Draft. Since our last update in late September, Sissons has screamed up the consensus draft rankings, moving from 65th to 29th in six weeks on the back of his 10 goals and 16 points in 20 games for the Kelowna Rockets of the WHL. He was named Captain of the Rockets for the 2011-12 season and was recently named to Team WHL for the Subway Super Series against team Russia.

Sissons is an early reminder of how volatile even the consensus rankings can be, and he's not alone in that regard.

The sources for the consensus list are Bob McKenzie, Redline Report, Future Considerations, ISS, McKeens, Dan Sallows, Craig Button, Hockey Prospectus, and The Scouting Report.

  • Joining Sissons in his tear up the rankings were Dalton Thrower, the smooth-skating, but extremely scrappy, defenseman from Saskatoon, who went from 77th to 44th; and Philip Di Giuseppe, from Michigan in the NCAA, who was not ranked in the top 100 in September, yet now sits 59th. Di Giuseppe has 11 points in his first 12 games, a remarkable achievement for a such a young player in such a tough conference. If he can score as the Wolverines enter conference play, he'll move up into the first round.
  • A couple of players fell over the last six weeks, notably Emil Lundberg, the Swedish forward from Södertälje. He was 38th in September and sits 54th now.
  • Nick Ebert, the defenseman from Windsor has taken a big hit in the early season and the scouts I've talked to have mentioned work ethic and attitude as a concern. Ebert was 5th in September and sits 10th now and few people were confident he'd stay there. Also falling five spots was Matia Marcantuoni, the Kitchener forward.
  • Filip Forsberg, a 6'1" forward playing for Leksands in the Allsvenskan jumped from 8th to 4th and Matthew Dumba, Bob McKenzie's curious selection at #2 overall jumped from 9th into Ebert's vacated 5th spot.
