This month’s release shuffles the top rankings of the ISS Top 30. With the season winding down, Sam Reinhart overtakes Aaron Ekblad for the #1 ranking, where Reinhart started the season. Michael Dal Colle has gone above and beyond with his recent play to surpass Sam Bennett for the #3 ranking.

“A spectacular start to the playoffs has helped both Sam Reinhart and Michael Dal Colle move up the ISS rankings”, comments ISS Hockey Director of Scouting Dennis MacInnis. “With their last chance to show their development before the draft, both are averaging close to two points per game, while leading their respective clubs towards championship titles.”
