ISS Hockey has released its new monthly rankings of the top prospects eligible for the 2014 NHL Draft. This month's rankings include the top 200 skaters, along with the top 15 goaltenders, as evaluated and ranked by ISS Hockey’s worldwide network of scouts.

Below is the ISS Top 30, highlighting the rankings for the top 30 prospects. An interactive page where the ISS Top 30 can be viewed, sorted, commented on, and where users can interact with our scouts can be viewed at:

The December release of the ISS Top 30 show a consistent outcome of the month’s release of the Top 5 holding their rankings; Sam Reinhart (#1), Aaron Ekblad (#2), Michael Dal Colle (#3), Willie Nylander (#4) and Sam Bennett (#5).

“Reinhart has been at the top of our lists all season. The World Juniors will be an excellent opportunity for him to continue his upward climb but Ekblad has been trending in the same direction, “ comments ISS Hockey Director of Scouting Dennis MacInnis. “Taking the World Juniors with a grain of salt when looking at the big picture but seeing how both Ekblad and Reinhart react playing at the highest level for Canada could give them an extra boost to lock up the #1 spot come June.”
