With the World Junior Hockey Championship just days away, International Scouting Services released their December draft rankings with no change in the top five prospects.

In order, Nathan MacKinnon of the Halifax Mooseheads, Portland's Seth Jones, Aleksander Barkov of Tappara in the Finnish Elite League, Jonathan Drouin of Halifax and Ottawa's Sean Monahan remain as the top prospects for this summer's NHL Draft.

Two Russian players made big moves in the last month with Valery Nichushkin of Chelyabinsk earning a spot in the top 10, going from 12th position to seventh and Nikita Zadorov of the OHL's London Knights moving from 19th to 11th.

Curtis Lazar of the WHL's Edmonton Oil Kings dropped out of the top 10, going from sixth position down to 12th.

Joining the top 30 are Madison Bowey of the Kelowna Rockets, Kitchener's Justin Bailey and Samuel Morin of Rimouski.

Dropping out of the top 30 are Linkoping's Viktor Crus-Rydberg, J.T. Compher from the USA Under-18 Team and Ian McCoshen, who plays for Waterloo in the USHL.
