2012-13 Top 300 NHL Prospects (Part III: The Goalies)

The goal of this list is to place a raw ranking or value on a given young player's ability to adapt and mature his game during those crucial first few seasons after he is drafted or signed by an NHL team.

Prospect Criteria: Players under 24 years of age who have appeared in less than 40 NHL games are considered prospects. A player's current ranking combines two grades; the first is his current state of NHL preparedness (60%) and the second measures his long-term potential (40%).
