TSN Director of Scouting Craig Button produces rankings (September through June) this season featuring the top players eligible for the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. Craig's rankings represent his individual assessment of where players are slotted in the NHL draft. They will be posted in addition to Bob McKenzie's consensus NHL rankings, which is compiled four times a year. Bob's rankings represent the consensus NHL team view of where players are slotted in the NHL draft.

You can follow Craig on Twitter at @CraigJButton and Bob at @TSNBobMcKenzie.

Goaltending statistics are as follows: games, wins, goals-against average, save percentage and shutouts. The shot header applies to the goaltender's glove hand.

Note: The 'Last' column represents their Craig's List ranking from the previous month. October's ranking was the first of the season which ranked the Top 60 players. September ranked the Top 30. The remaining 30 players round up a Top 90, which will be formally ranked in the next edition. For now, they appear in alphabetical order.
