With the 2014 NHL draft in the books, all 30 NHL teams have a prospect list freshly bolstered with new players. 

But how do these fresh draftees fit into the mix of more established prospects?

To answer that question, we've compiled a ranking of the top 50 prospects in the NHL. To qualify, a player must still be eligible for the Calder Trophy (i.e. under the age of 25 and with 25 or fewer games played in a single season). 

Our rankings are based on a combination of factors: long-term upside, the amount of risk inherent in that projection and NHL readiness. Obviously, the best prospects are those with a good chance of being impact players in short order and with little risk attached to those projections. 

Read on for our view of the NHL's 50 best prospects.
