Episode 489: Ty Smith and the NHL Prospects Landscape

When we saw Scott Wheeler of The Athletic’s recent top prospects list, we didn’t agree with Ty Smith’s placement. So we went through his list and debated the names ahead of Ty to see where the 2018 17th overall pick should truly fit.


  1. Tony

    Tough to downgrade players skating in the AHL as 20-year-olds like Kyrou. Coming off 100+ points in final year of juniors and then almost point-per-game and leading scorer amongst forwards despite missing significant time.

    Smith was great among players but jump is big.

  2. Tony

    Always difficult gauging purely on stats – 4-7-11 for York at the WJC u18. Smith was 0-3-3 at that tournament.
