Windsor’s right winger Joshua Ho-Sang rises 12 positions this month to #14 from #26. At the other end of the spectrum, North Bay’s center Blake Clarke drops 13 positions to #26 from #13 in October.

“Power forward Blake Clarke has unfortunately missed most of the season with shoulder injury, and others are starting to move ahead of him in our rankings”, says ISS Hockey Director of Scouting Dennis MacInnis. “On the other hand, Joshua Ho-Sang is rising for all the right reasons, his play on the ice. Ho-Sang has elite puck skills, exceptional play making ability and one on one skills, and is an explosive, quick, fast player. He is, however, a high risk, high reward player at times.”

The full monthly ISS Hockey rankings are available within RinkNet, software technology tailored for the general manager, scout, coach, player agent or superfan that wants in-depth information on prospects for the upcoming NHL and CHL drafts. They are published on the 15th of each month during the hockey season, along with detailed player scouting profiles and game reports. To find out more about RinkNet, please visit
