Prospects Analysis: Atlantic Division

This article is part of our Prospects Analysis series.

This is the second of a four-part series that will cover, dissect, and rank the top prospects of each NHL organization. I covered 15 prospects for each club along with a potential sleeper.

Sleeper: Pavel Shen (C)
