BLOG: Sam Reinhart remains top dog on Button’s list

by Chris Wescott / Edmonton Oilers

There were not many changes to TSN Director of Scouting Craig Button’s ‘Craig’s List’ this week. Button posts his rankings of the top draft-eligible players.

Once again, Kootenay centre Sam Reinhart tops the rankings for the seventh time. Barrie Colts defenceman Aaron Ekblad takes second while Kingston centre Sam Bennett and Prince Albert centre Leon Draisaitl round out the top four. The top four have remained the same from Button’s previous list.

Button had a couple of players shoot up his list from the previous rankings as Calgary Hitmen defenceman Travis Sanheim moved from 23 to eighth overall. Russian centre Vladislav Kamenev moved from 25 to 12.

The Oilers currently hold the third overall pick in the first round.
