29 Canadian Sport School Hockey League (CSSHL) alumni have made the Preliminary Players to Watch List for the 2022 NHL Entry Draft.
The players on the list were sourced by NHL Central Scouting and categorized based on an A-to-C rating scale. A-rated players were classified as potential first-round picks, B-rated players are forecasted to be selected in the second or third round while C-rated players are projected to be drafted in the fourth, fifth or sixth round.
