Prospect Roundup: Draft Mailbag Edition

Steven Ellis/The Hockey News

This week I asked YOU for questions about NHL prospects or the 2022 NHL draft and you did not disappoint. I chose some of the best questions and I have come prepared with some answers! Without further ado, let’s answer some mail!

Steven Ellis (@StevenEllisTHN): Would love your overall thoughts on the goalie class this year.

Let’s be clear, I am only choosing to answer this question because Steven is my boss. There was favoritism shown here, no denying it. As for the question itself, the goalie class for the 2022 NHL draft is pretty underwhelming. There certainly isn’t a prospect of the caliber we’ve seen recently in Jesper Wallstedt, Sebastian Cossa, Yaroslav Askarov, or Spencer Knight. We’ve been spoiled in recent years but there isn’t a goalie worth selecting in the top round and in all honestly, I don’t know if there is a netminder I’d be looking at in the top two rounds.
