Connor Bedard has consumed much of the oxygen surrounding this year's draft and rightfully so. He is a special player coming off of one of the most spectacular pre-draft seasons in recent memory. While Bedard is a special player and will likely change the long-term fortunes of the Chicago Blackhawks, who own the top pick in this year's draft, there is a wide array of players available for selection that will become impact prospects for their team.

Top players Adam Fantilli, Leo Carlsson and Matvei Michkov have often been mentioned in the same sentence as the next tier of player following Bedard, each of whom could become stars for their respective teams. Others like Will Smith, Ryan Leonard and David Reinbacher have also generated significant buzz over the course of the season.
