College Hockey:
Heavy NCAA flavor on final NHL Central Scouting rankings

The National Hockey League released its final Central Scouting rankings recently for the 2013 NHL Entry Draft that will be held June 30 in Newark, N.J.

Nearly 80 current college players or college-bound players made the final rankings of the North American skaters and goaltenders, including three that just completed their freshman seasons on campus.

The commitments are taken from Chris Heisenberg’s recruiting website.
