Top five prospects remain unchanged in ISS Hockey’s release of its November ISS Top 30 – Auston Matthews (#1), Jakob Chychrun (#2), Max Jones (#3), Matthew Tkachuk (#4) and Jesse Puljujarvi (#5). Right defender, Dante Fabbro, of the Penticton Vees in the BCHL and left winger, Vitalii Abramov, of the Gatineau Olympique of the QMJHL, both ball five positions to #13 and #28, respectively.

“Consistency is key with these top five prospects”, says ISS Hockey Director of Scouting Dennis MacInnis. “Whether its Matthew’s creation of plays, Chychrun’s elite defensive leadership, Jone’s speed, Thachuk’s shot or Puljujarvi’s goal  scoring ability. Each have an elite pro potential that keeps them holding onto our top rankings.”
