*Please note prospects playing in the NCAA, Prep Schools, USHL and KHL are unavailable since these leagues aren’t in NHL 15. 


Once again, the game’s evaluation of players are clearly inaccurate. Here are a few obvious examples:

– Michael McCarron is on the Knights’ fourth line, but is rated as one of their best players;
– I have seen Daniel Audette play close to 100 times, and him being classified as a two-way forward is a nonsense. He is a natural born playmaker. If I had to compare him to a current Habs player, his closest model would be David Desharnais.

As a conclusion, I strongly suggest you not to rely on these in-game stats to evaluate a player in real life. If you consider EA Sports even struggles at giving an accurate rating and play style to most of NHL players, imagine how poorly accurate their evaluation of prospects can be. Also, another reason not to base yourself on EA Sports NHL 15’s evaluations is that 16-to-20-year old hockey players are a lot harder to evaluate than professional players, because even if they are dominant in junior leagues, they may never be able to adapt to the professional level.
