Peterborough Petes goaltender Hunter Jones ranks #2 for all goalies in November’s ISS Rankings. ISS Director of Scouting Dennis MacInnis has been very impressed with Jones’ progress, stating:

“Hunter Jones is a big goalie who takes up a lot of net. He sees the puck very well through traffic, has good reactions and strong rebound control and directs them well to the corners. Jones has shown a great amount of progress this season and has an imposing presence; he has future NHL starter written all over him.”
