Eight Manitobans have been named to NHL Central Scouting’s final rankings for the 2021 NHL Draft.

Winnipeg ICE defenceman Carson Lambos was the highest ranked Manitoban by NHL Central Scouting at 11th overall amongst North American skaters. The 18-year-old was limited to just two games with the ICE this year due to injury. Prior to the start of the 2020 – 2021 WHL Regular Season, Lambos played over in Finland for the JYP club in Jyväskylä. Lambos registered two goals and nine assists in 13 games for JYP’s Under-20 team. Lambos was the third-highest ranked player from the WHL.

Seattle Thunderbirds Forward Conner Roulette was the second highest ranked Manitoban by NHL Central Scouting at 36th overall. Roulette registered six goals and six assists in 11 games for the Thunderbirds this past season. Roulette also represented Team Canada at the 2021 IIHF U18 World Championship in Texas, winning a gold medal.
