NHL Central Scouting ready to roll
          Scout Greg Rajanen


So the scouts are in place and we're ready to roll here at the board offices in Toronto. The final meeting to determine the top 2013 draft-eligible prospects is under way.

Scouts in attendance are director Dan Marr, along with Chris Edwards (OHL), Greg Rajanen (U.S.), Al Jensen (U.S./Canada), B.J. MacDonald (WHL), Peter Sullivan (WHL), Chris Bordeleau (QMJHL) and David Gregory (U.S./Canada). Jensen is also responsible for ranking the top North American goaltenders.

Rajanen was hired this season by NHL Central Scouting to cover the mid-Western region of the United States, including the United States Hockey League, Minnesota high schools and colleges. To learn more about the "New Scout on the block," click here.

In case you missed it, NHL.com contacted two NHL scouts and asked for their projections for the opening round of the 2013 NHL Draft, slated for June 30 at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J.

The Eastern Conference scout's take can be accessed here.
