Fantasy Ranking The 2021 Draftees

Now that the dust has settled on the NHL Entry Draft, it's time to take a quick spin around the block and see which players landed where and how it will affect their short and long-term fantasy prospects.

As we know, the developmental strength of the organization, the pipeline, the quality of teammates, the coaching systems, the strength of opposition and a whole host of other factors will come together to help form the prognosis for a young player entering the league and finding a way to their ceiling. 

For this exercise, I'll rank the top-10 prospects drafted in the 2021 Entry Draft. I'll weigh it mostly on the upside for points (and saves/wins/shutouts for goaltenders). But I'll make mention of the potential for periphery category filling as well.
