ISS May 2016

This month’s release outlines an unchanged pattern in the top three rankings of the ISS Top 30. With one more final release to go, Auston Matthews, Jesse Puljujarvi and Patrik Laine are locked into their respective top three rankings for May. Dante Fabbro is the biggest mover, jumping drastically into #19 based upon an outstanding showing at the 2016 World Under-18 Championship.

“He stood out and was well liked by our scouts at the World U18’s,” says ISS Hockey Director of Scouting Dennis MacInnis. “Fabbro showed patience and composure with the puck in all situations. He has the ability to create offence from anywhere on the ice.”
