As noted by Gare Joyce in Insider's latest Top 50 NHL Draft Prospect Rankings, Swedish center Victor Rask has dropped drastically. Since Insider's first Top 50 list, he's dropped 25 slots from No. 7 to No. 32.

Across the Atlantic, the picture isn't much better for the Leksand Jr. skater. Scouts who have seen him this season think his development might have come to a halt, at least for the moment.
