Pereira & Teglia Make Final NHL Draft Rankings

The final rankings for the NHL Draft were released today by Central Scouting and incoming recruits Mike Pereira and Jeff Teglia made the list.  Pereira is ranked as the 63rd best North American skater, up from 77th in the Mid-Term rankings.  The improvement was enough to get Pereira and invite to the NHL Scouting Combine.

Jeff Teglia is ranked as the 24th best North American goaltender, up from 26th at the mid-term.  For those interested, Thomas Pöck’s little brother is the 88th best European skater in the rankings.


New England Hockey Journal writer Andrew Merritt reported on his Twitter page that Greg Mauldin has been recalled by the Islanders and will play for them tomorrow against the Penguins.  Mauldin hasn’t appeared in the NHL since the six games he played for the Blue Jackets in 2004 after leaving UMass.

Casey Wellman mentioned his dramatic overtime game-winner against Boston College in this feature on the Wild’s college players.
