This is the final week leading up to the 2011 NHL entry draft taking place in Minnesota this weekend.

Central Scouting's final rankings are set, with Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Adam Larsson topping the lists of skaters for North America and Europe, respectively. Now, we sit back and wait to see which one (or if someone else) is drafted first overall.

The combine has passed, giving prospects only skates for teams to prove themselves and try to get picked higher in the draft.

The draft order is set. Now we'll just wait and see if teams make trades in the order this week.
