The only 2013 draft pick to make our list is first-rounder Curtis Lazar, and his debut has him pretty high up--the organization is optimistic about Lazar's future, and so are the authors here at Silver Seven.
The 19-year-old Swedish defenceman has moved up one spot since our last prospect ranking, but there are still a lot of questions about whether or not Mikael Wikstrand will be able to transition to North American pro hockey.
Two years ago, Corey Cowick didn't make a likely candidate for this list. But then again, five years ago, he wasn't a likely candidate for the NHL draft, either. A strong season in Binghamton has boosted his stock, with more room to grow.
Gone but certainly not forgotten, Jared Cowen won't suit up for the Ottawa Senators this season and he will be sorely missed. He is already one of the best defencemen on this team, and he just turned 22.
