Jack Hughes and Kaapo Kakko lock in the #1 and #2 spots respectively after holding the top spots all season. Dennis MacInnis, Director of Scouting for ISS Hockey, noted their talents, stating:

“Both Kakko and Hughes will be impact players; it will be tough choice for the Devils. The Rangers are in a win situation no matter which of these top two “falls” into their hands. Hughes is crafty playmaker centerman with tremendous upside and Kakko is sniper who held his own playing against NHL players at IIHF World Championships”.
