QMJHL winger Alexis Lafrenière takes the #1 spot in the October ISS Rankings. Dennis MacInnis, Director of Scouting for ISS Hockey, observed Lafrenière’s skills, stating:
Alexis Lafrenière – “18/19 CHL Player of the Year, Lafreniere has an exceptionally high skill level and can-do things with a puck that not many players his age can do.
Skilled, playmaking type that makes everyone around him better. Very good one-on one skills, is creative with the puck and has a knack for the net”.
