Last week, I asked all of you readers to give me your top ten prospects for the 2013 NHL Draft once again. These are the results of all of your top tens, which reveals some kind of consensus as far as who will go where in the top ten.

Erik Bradford: 2013 NHL Draft Prospect Profile

With the 160th overall pick in the 2013 NHL Draft, should the Devils select Erik Bradford? He is a strong defensive forward who is reliable allover the ice - especially the penalty kill and the face-off circle.

Tyler Kelleher: 2013 NHL Draft Prospect Profile

Tyler Kelleher is a small winger who put up big numbers with the United Stated National Team Developmental Program for two seasons. He wasn't ranked by CSS or other services, but this profile explains why he shouldn't be ignored late in the draft.

J-S Dea: 2013 NHL Draft Prospect Profile

Jean-Sebastien Dea is a forward who, after being passed over in the 2012 draft, has made a lot of noise in the QMJHL. With his stock now risen, could he be someone the Devils grab in the late rounds of the draft?

Little Consensus Among Mock Drafts for NJ Pick

As the 2013 NHL Entry Draft comes closer, more mock drafts are coming out. I review the 32 latest ones per DC Pro Sports Report's list and determine that there really isn't a consensus player for the Devils at #9, but the pick was usually a forward.

Peter Cehlarik: 2013 NHL Draft Prospect Profile

Peter Cehlarik is a Slovakian winger who has been playing in Sweden and rapidly improving his draft stock the past year. Could he make it as high as the Devils pick in the second round?

Pavel Buchnevich: 2013 NHL Draft Prospect Profile

Pavel Buchnevich is an extremely skilled prospect that has shown both incredible talent and a lack of drive. This profile will take a look at whether his talent outweighs the risk that would come with taking the streaky winger.

Marko Dano: 2013 NHL Draft Prospect Profile

Marko Dano is a feisty Slovak forward who has a solid two-way game and good skating and passing skills. Could he be a fit for the Devils in the second round of the Draft?

Justin Bailey is big and has big potential to be a talented winger at the next level. In this prospect profile, read praise for his shot and most of his skating, learn he's still got a ways to go as a player, and realize a Metroid connection.

Eric Comrie: 2013 NHL Draft Prospect Profile

Eric Comrie is a 17 year old canadian goaltender from Edmonton, Alberta. He weighs in at 170 lbs and stands six feet tall. The 2012-13 season was his second season playing in the WHL and he has been very consist for the Tri-City Americans.

Jacob De La Rose: 2013 NHL Draft Prospect Profile

Jacob De La Rose is a fast-skating, physical player from the SEL-2. He could be an effective power forward in the NHL but does have some questions about his offensive ability. Could he be the right pick for the Devils in Round Two?

Curtis Lazar is a solid two way forward who is currently playing for the Edmonton Oil Kings of the WHL and will likely go in the second round in the upcoming NHL draft!

Max Domi: 2013 NHL Draft Prospect Profile

Morgan Klimchuk: 2013 NHL Draft Prospect Profile

Morgan Klimchuk is a forward for the Regina Pats who projects to go in the late first or early second round. He's a talented forward who could be a good pick for the Devils if he's available at number 39.

Anthony Duclair: 2013 Draft Prospect Profile

Anthony Duclair may not be big and he wasn't as productive in his second season with the Quebec Remparts after his first. He's got speed and a good shot among other skills to make him an offensive winger that could go in the 2nd round of the draft.

Shea Theodore: 2013 NHL Draft Prospect Profile

For those looking forward to the draft, this post will continue to look at the possible draft selection for the New Jersey Devils in the 2013 draft that is taking place in Newark.I look at a WHL prospect similar to Mike Green.

Rasmus Ristolainen 2013 NHL Draft Prospect Profile

Rasmus Ristolainen is a Finnish defensive prospect who projects to possibly be one of the better players left on the board for the Devils at #9 in the 2013 entry draft. He has good size and skills, but should the Devils use their pick on a d-man?

Hunter Shinkaruk: 2013 Draft Prospect Profile

Hunter Shinkaruk is the second highest ranked prospect to come out of the WHL. In this profile, much is made of his skating, his hands, his offensive skills, and his lack of size - almost all of which would make him a great pick at ninth overall.
