CALGARY, AB – Connor McDavid of the Erie Otters tops Future Considerations’ March ranking for the 2015 NHL Draft, presented by FASTHockey.

McDavid has held the top spot at Future Considerations since the Preliminary ranking was released last May and hasn’t shown any desire to relinquish that role. The 18-year-old Erie Otters captain has been an Ontario Hockey League standout, posting 37 goals and 100 points in 38 games this season. Since coming back from the World Junior Championship in January, where he helped Canada to gold, McDavid has yet to be held without a point.

Boston University’s Jack Eichel continues to trail McDavid. He’s ranked second and has been since the Preliminary ranking, too. The North Chelmsford, MA native has enjoyed a standout year, recording 16 goals and 52 points in 31 games as a freshman.

Noah Hanifin of Boston College and Dylan Strome, McDavid teammate in Erie, are ranked third and fourth respectively. Mitchell Marner of the London Knights is fifth.
