Explosive. Dynamic. Dangerous…those are just some of the key indicators our elite ISS scouting staff have labelled on #1 ranked Connor McDavid. McDavid is an impressive skater with tremendous puck skills, these qualities compliment this smart hockey player. ISS #2 ranked Jack Eichel has creativity, skating edges and agility which make him lethal in the offensive rush. Rounding out the ISS top 3 is Boston College defenseman Noah Hanifin, who is a solid defender and a tough go around.

"Connor McDavid has incredible vision and playmaking ability,” says ISS Hockey Director of Scouting Dennis MacInnis. “Having the chance to scout Sidney Crosby at the same age, McDavid is even more impressive, true superstar potential.”
