'Previously regarded as an organization top-heavy in forwards, there are currently three defensive prospects placed in the top 10 for the first time since 2001. All in all, there are seven rearguards holding spots in the top 20 with forwards filling out the remaining 13 spots. What for years was a position with a quality prospect in the top five, not one goaltender made the cut this time around.'
