The QMJHL follows with ‘A’ ranked representatives in 2018 first overall CHL Import Draft selection Maxim Cajokovic (Saint John Sea Dogs) as well as fellow forwards Raphael Lavoie (Halifax Mooseheads) and Samuel Poulin (Sherbrooke Phoenix).

The OHL rounds out the CHL’s ‘A’ ranked players with forwards in former first overall pick Ryan Suzuki (Barrie Colts) and returning OHL champion Arthur Kaliyev (Hamilton Bulldogs).

20 skaters and three goaltenders received a ‘B’ rating which indicates second/third round candidates while 66 skaters and nine goaltenders received a ‘C rating’ which indicates fourth/fifth/sixth round candidates.
