This month’s release outlines an unchanged pattern in the top rankings of the ISS Top 30. With one more final release to go, Sam Reinhart, Aaron Ekblad, Michael Dal Colle, Sam Bennett and William Nylander are locked into their respective top 5 rankings for May. Robby Fabbri is the biggest mover, jumping 8 spots from #16 to #8 by impressively leading the Guelph Storm to the OHL championship.

“Fabbri is an impact center, and anytime he has the puck inside the blue line, it’s a scoring chance”, comments ISS Hockey Director of Scouting Dennis MacInnis. “He showcased his growth as a player by scoring a bushel of important goals in the OHL playoffs, and he continues to draw lots of attention with his MVP award from the OHL playoffs.”

The full monthly ISS Hockey rankings are available within RinkNet, software technology tailored for the general manager, scout, coach, player agent or super fan 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
