Where will Luke Green be drafted?

Next weekend in Buffalo, Sea Dogs defenseman Luke Green will be selected in the NHL Draft.

There’s not much debate on whether or not he will be drafted. Where in the draft he’ll be taken is the big question.

With some help from Elite Prospects, here’s a look at where the major draft publications have Green ranked:

No. 47 – Future Considerations
No. 51 – The Hockey News
No. 60 – McKeen’s Hockey
No. 63 - TSN (Craig Button)
No. 71 –
No. 88 – ISS Hockey

Green was also ranked 40th amongst North American skaters in NHL Central Scouting’s final listings.

Sea Dogs forward Nathan Noel and defenseman Oliver Felixson are also candidates to have their names called next Saturday. Noel, passed over in last year’s draft, was ranked 171st by NHL Central Scouting while Felixson was 189th.

Defenseman Marshall Rifai (123rd), a Harvard commit, and forward Jamie Armstrong (124th), a Northeastern commit, could also be selected. Both players have their CHL rights owned by Saint John.

The 2016 NHL Draft takes place Friday and Saturday in Buffalo. Sportsnet will have live coverage.
