The NHL Draft and draft lottery are still months away, but the Montreal Canadiens look more and more destined for best odds at the No. 1 pick after losing what many called the "disaster bowl" against the Arizona Coyotes, and NHL Central Scouting is starting to release lists ranking the available prospects.

With that in mind, here's an update on all things NHL prospects in my latest notebook:

Men of Steel

The 10th edition of the BioSteel All-American game took place Monday in Plymouth, Michigan and Team Blue defeated Team White 4-3 in overtime. It was the most tightly contested game in the history of the event as USA Hockey has tweaked the format over the last few years. The current format, where USNTDP team players and the top draft-eligible players from the USHL were pooled together and then divided into two teams, seems to provide the most competitive environment.

Green Bay’s Damien Carfagna scored the game-winner. Program players Cutter Gauthier and Rutger McGroarty, both of Team Blue, led the way with two points each. McGroarty was named the Player of the Game.

Draft Central

Last week, NHL Central Scouting released its first numbered rankings for the 2022 NHL Draft.
