2012 NHL Draft futures list out

One week after the 2011 NHL Entry Draft, the league's Central Scouting service turned its attention to the 2012 field, presenting its summer prospect futures grades.

Leading the pack of Massachusetts high schoolers were Robert Baillargeon (Cushing Academy) and Devin Tringale (Lawrence Academy) who each received 'A' grades.

Among those receiving 'B' grades were the first MIAA players to be recognized by a pair of wingers: Brendan Collier of Malden Catholic and Sam Kurker of St. John's Prep.

Also receiving 'A' grades were winger Brian Hart of Exeter (N.H.) High and center Cristoval Nieves of the The Kent School (Conn.).
