2024 NHL Draft Final Rankings


By Warren Kozireski —

NHL Central Scouting released their final rankings for the 2024 NHL Entry Draft to be held in Las Vagas June 28-29 at The Sphere and three players hailing from New York State dot the lists of 224 North American skaters or 32 North American goaltenders.

U.S. National team Development Program goaltender John (Jack) Parsons is the 13th rated goaltender falling from sixth at midterm. The 6’4”, 185 lb. from Ithaca is committed to play at Providence in 2024 or 2025 and has played in a combined 27 games with 14 wins  as of mid-January. In 14 games he sports a 4.13 GAA during the USHL portion of the schedule with an .854 save percentage with better stas in 31 other games this past season. He is currently part of Team USA for the U-18 tournament taking place in Finland where he played in one of the first three games—an 8-2 victory over Norway.

Falling from 83rd at midterm to 140th among N.A. skaters is 5’11”, 185 lb. Providence University freshman forward Tanner Adams. The Northport native spent two seasons with Tri-City in the USHL and was a freshman with Providence this year where he finished second on the team in scoring with six goals and 15 assists in 35 games with the Friars.

Ranked 120th among N.A. skaters at midterm and 167th in the final is Rye’s Drew Dellasalla, a 6’0”, 170 lb. New York City native who is skating with Omaha in the USHL. The 2025 Harvard commit had 24 points over 57 games in his first year in the USHL with Omaha after he put up 44 points in 31 games with the Brunswick School last season.
