Frontenacs' Samuel Bennett ranked No. 1 again by NHL Central Scouting

Samuel Bennett remained No. 1 among North American skaters in NHL Central Scouting's final rankings for June's draft.

The Kingston Frontenacs centre and Toronto native had 36 goals and 55 assists this season.

Barrie Colts defenceman Aaron Ekblad, from Belle River, Ont., came in second, while centre Sam Reinhart of the WHL's Kootenay Ice (North Vancouver, B.C.) was third.

Tops among European skaters was winger Kasperi Kapanen, son of former NHLer Sami Kapanen.

The NHL draft lottery, which determines who gets the No. 1 pick, is Tuesday, April 15. The Buffalo Sabres have already clinched the lowest point total in the league and the highest chance of selecting first.

The Florida Panthers are next (64 points with three games left), followed by the Edmonton Oilers (65 points with three games left), New York Islanders (73 points with four games left) and the Calgary Flames (75 points with three games left).
