The prospects ranked 1-4 this month are the same names, and in the same order, as last month. Kootenay Ice center Sam Reinhart continues his hold on the top ranking, his third month in that position. Defenseman Aaron Ekblad of the Barrie Colts retains his runner-up status for the third month in a row, as well, while Oshawa Generals forward Michael Dal Colle holds steady at #3.
The highest-ranked player from Europe is center Willie Nylander, who plays for Rogle BK in Sweden's Allsvenskan league. Nylander also retained his hold on a top five position, remaining at #4 in November.
Kingston Frontenacs left winger Sam Bennett continued his climb up the rankings, moving into the fifth position from last month's #9 ranking. Another OHL forward making a significant jump, one that carried him into the top 10, is Niagara IceDogs left wing Brendan Perlini. The potential power forward moved from the 16th slot in October up to the eighth position in this month's ranking.
The player making the greatest jump in the first round from the October rankings is Windsor Spitfires right wing Josh Ho-Sang. He climbed 12 places in this month's rankings, from 26 to 14. The player falling furthest from October to November is injured potential power forward Blake Clarke of the North Bay Battalion, who fell from the 13th position to Ho-Sang's last ranking, #26.
According to ISS Hockey, the top goaltending prospect so far in the 2013-14 season is Kaapo Kahkonen, who plays for Espoo in the Finnish Junior A league. OHL goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic of the Plymouth Whalers is ranked behind Kahkonen, while Boston College netminder Thatcher Demko is ranked third.
