Platinum Seat Ghosts Draft Tools

Hello everyone,

I have put together a top-150 aggregate draft rankings in preparation for Friday's draft. If you have never seen my rankings, they attempt to aggregate rankings from 10 of the more well-known scouting services and media outlets. Along with the rankings, I've prepared a couple tools to provide as much info about a prospect as possible. Both tools work the best if you full screen the web browser.

The first tableau visual is simply a table that has selectable columns/statistics, that can be subsequently sorted. The first box on the right hand side allows you to choose which columns to display. Once you have selected a column, if you would then like to sort the list using it, go to the top of the column and press the sort button. The second and third boxes allow you to filter prospects by position and league. The lists is long, and can be scrolled through. This tool contains 344 draft eligible prospects.

The second tableau tool visualizes the top-150 aggregate rankings, while still providing full profile if you scroll over, or click on the the player. The visual should be read as such: the left hand side of the green bar is the highest ranking, and the right hand side of the red bar is the lowest ranking. Where the red and the green meet is the prospect's average ranking. On the right hand side, you can filter to see only the segment of the rankings you'd like (the visual will re-format to best fit the # you choose), as well as filtering out by position and handedness. This tool contains only the top-150 prospects.

While I have played with both of these a little bit, there could very well still be errors or areas of improvement. If you find errors (not weight or height!), please let me know. If you have ideas to make these visual work better for you, send me a DM on Twitter. I'm not stubborn about the formatting.

I will also have a couple more additions to this page in the next couple days such as draft rankings over time for the top prospects, and a text version of the top-150 prospects if that floats your boat.

If you would like to play around with all the data I have collected, feel free to shoot me an e-mail at platinumseatghosts at gmail dot com. I can't give you everything, but almost.

None of this would've been possible if not for the following resources:


OHL, WHL, QMJHL, USHL primary points:

Height, weight, statistics, birthdates, birthplaces, position:
