NHL Entry Draft – Ranking the RWs

By Bob Trask – While the Canadiens have been looking to strengthen the team at center for a long time, a quick look at the organizational depth chart (not including those on the NHL roster) it becomes apparent that there is a lack of right-handed shooting wingers. Once you get past Jesse Ylönen and Blake Biondi the cupboard is bare.

It’s true that a lot of left-handed shooting wingers play the right side but for the purposes of this list, we are only considering right-handed shooting wingers.

No general manager in his right mind will choose a mediocre right wing prospect over an exceptional player at any other position, however it is worth knowing who is available. As with our ranking of the centers available, the same caveat applies. We may have overlooked one or two and we may have also unintentionally listed a winger as a center in this table.
