For many years, ISS Hockey (International Scouting Services) has released the ISS Top 30, the monthly ranking of the top prospects for the NHL Draft. The inclusion of 30 players coincided with the 30 NHL teams. With the addition of a 31st NHL team for next season in Las Vegas, which will be included in the upcoming NHL Draft, the ISS Top 30 will now become the ISS Top 31.
We at ISS Hockey and our parent company HockeyTech are very proud to have the still-to-be-named Las Vegas team as our newest NHL customer, joining all 30 current teams who rely upon our technology, analytics and information services to build their teams.
The ISS Top 31 will continue to be released on the first Wednesday of each month leading up to the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.
