Four more teams remain in the hunt for the Stanley Cup. While they remain focused on the ultimate goal in the playoffs, the other 26 teams are preparing for next season.
They're looking at potential free agents they would like to sign, exploring trades that would improve their roster and scouting prospects for the upcoming draft. One thing they're also doing is evaluating their own prospects and seeing if any of them could make the jump to the NHL.
Some teams have big-name prospects that are ready to take their game to the next level. Others are relying on role player-type prospects to come in and help their team in a different way.
Big name or not, you can expect to see all 30 of these prospects playing in the NHL next season.
