Red Deer’s center/right winger Conner Bleackley is the biggest mover this month, rising 12 positions from #27 in September to #15.
"Conner Bleackley is Red Deer's most dangerous offensive player and has clear leadership qualities,” says ISS Hockey Director of Scouting Dennis MacInnis. “He has a great pure release on his shot and knows how to place shots dangerously, but he can also be a good playmaker and a strong skater with good balance and shifty edge usage.”
