This article is part of our Prospects Analysis series.
With the 2015-16 NHL season at its halfway point, it is time to update our list of the top 100 prospects in hockey.
(Notes: Players with 25 games or more of NHL regular season experience are not included and while Connor McDavid is yet to reach that total due to the injury he suffered early in the season, he has been "graduated" from the list. He would be the number one prospect by a mile if he were still included.)
1. Mitch Marner (F-TOR) - Marner's ceiling is higher than any other player on this list. His performance in the third period of Canada's quarterfinal loss to Finland at the World Juniors was simply dominant. He has been unstoppable for London (OHL) with 24 goals and 61 points in just 27 games this season.
2. Dylan Strome (F-ARI) - A ton of players graduated from the list that we put out at the start of the season, but Strome is clearly one of the best players still eligible. He's tall and lanky, but his hands are elite and he is an extremely smart player. He isn't the best skater in the world, but his hockey IQ more than makes up for it. No one has been able to stop Strome at the junior level. He has 55 points in 27 games for Erie (OHL).
3. William Nylander (F-TOR) - It's a real shame that a dirty hit in Sweden's opening game knocked Nylander out for the remainder of the World
