Shane Wright, a center with Kingston of the Ontario Hockey League, is No. 1 in NHL Central Scouting's final ranking of North American skaters for the 2022 Upper Deck NHL Draft.

Central Scouting on Thursday revealed its final list of the top North American skaters and goalies, and the top International skaters and goalies.

Left wing Juraj Slafkovsky of TPS of Liiga, Finland's top professional league, is No. 1 among International skaters.

Central Scouting conducted its final meetings with a five-day in-person meeting in Toronto in early April and two follow-up video conferences later in the month to finalize their lists.

The 2022 draft is scheduled to be held at Bell Centre in Montreal, with the first round July 7 and Rounds 2-7 on July 8. The NHL Draft Lottery to determine the first 16 picks in the draft will be May 10 at NHL Network studios in Secaucus, New Jersey (6:30 p.m. ET; ESPN, ESPN+, SN, SN NOW, TVAS).

Wright (6-foot, 191 pounds) was eighth in the OHL with 94 points (32 goals, 62 assists), and scored 28 power-play points (eight goals, 20 assists) in 63 regular-season games. The 18-year-old has scored eight points (two goals, six assists) in six OHL playoff games.

He was playing with the Don Mills Flyers Minor Midget AAA team when he was granted exceptional-player status by Hockey Canada in March 2019, and he was selected by Kingston with the No. 1 pick in the 2019 OHL draft as a 15-year-old. He was named rookie of the year in the Canadian Hockey League after scoring 66 points (39 goals, 27 assists) in 58 games in 2019-20.
