April's draft rankings from International Scouting Services shuffled the top rankings of the Top 30, seeing Sam Reinhart of the Kootenay Ice overtake Aaron Ekblad of the OHL's Barrie Colts for the No. 1 spot.

Also, Michael Dal Colle of the Oshawa Generals has gone above and beyond with his recent play to surpass Sam Bennett of the OHL's Kingston Frontenacs for the No. 3 position.

"A spectacular start to the playoffs has helped both Sam Reinhart and Michael Dal Colle move up the ISS rankings", comments ISS Hockey Director of Scouting Dennis MacInnis. "With their last chance to show their development before the draft, both are averaging close to two points per game, while leading their respective clubs towards championship titles."

Falling eight spots is Windsor Spitfires forward Josh Ho-Sang, who was recently suspended for 15 games for his hit from behind on London Knights defenceman Zach Bell.

Making an appearance in the Top 30 is forward Nick Schmaltz of the Green Bay Gamblers in the USHL, going into the 21st spot, while Ryan MacInnis of the Kitchener Rangers moves into the 22nd spot.

The top two goaltenders remained the same with Thatcher Demko of Boston College and Alex Nedeljkovic of the Plymouth Whalers, respectively. Rounding out the Top 3 netminders is Mason McDonald from the Charlottetown Islanders in the QMJHL, edging out Brent Moran of the Niagara IceDogs in the OHL.
