Prospects Analysis: Preseason Top Prospects: 51-100

This article is part of our Prospects Analysis series.

With the 2016-17 season fast approaching, this is the first of a two-part series that will cover the top 100 prospects in the game. In addition, we will also have a four-part series, broken down by division, covering the top 10 prospects in each organization.

(Note: Players with 25 games or more of NHL regular-season experience are not eligible for this list.)

51. Kevin Fiala, LW, Predators: Despite a solid season in the AHL (50 points in 66 games), Fiala's stock is plummeting. He was expected to spent virtually all of last season in the NHL, but amid questions regarding his attitude, he was limited to just five games with Nashville. If these ranking were based upon pure offensive ability alone, Fiala would be ranked in the top five. He's severely undersized at 5-foot-10, 190 pounds, but the 2014 No. 11 pick is a magician with the puck who rarely gets hit. He may be a defensive liability for his entire career, but he can do a ridiculous amount of damage on the offensive end if deployed correctly. If the Preds have no desire to give him a realistic opportunity, they should trade him. He trade value must be immense even though he's unproven at the highest level.

52. Juuse Saros, G, Predators: Following two seasons in which he was the best goaltender in Finland's top league, Saros arrived stateside this past season and continued his dominance with a 2.24 GAA and .920 save percentage in 38 games
