by Evan Sporer / Minnesota Wild

Leading up to the 2016 NHL Entry Draft, Wild.com will take a look at the top 30 ranked skaters according to the International Scouting Service. The Minnesota Wild owns the 15th pick in the first round, which will take place Friday, June 24 at First Niagara Center in Buffalo, N.Y.

Final ISS Ranking:
5
Mock Draft Projections:
NHL.com (6, 5); Hockey Prospect (4); ESPN (6); TSN (5); USA Today (5)
Scout Analysis:
"Dubois is a highly-skilled power forward who is unique in that he can play all three forward positions. He excels at utilizing his size and strength to his advantage and can play with an edge. A strong skater with deceptive speed and quickness, Dubois is a gifted playmaker with elite hockey sense and puck skills." – Dan Marr, Director of NHL Central Scouting

Alexander Nylander, Forward

2015-16 Team: Mississauga Steelheads (Ontario Hockey League)
2015-16 Statistics:
57 games played, 28 goals, 47 assists, 75 points, 18 penalty minutes
Final ISS Ranking:
6
Mock Draft Projections:
NHL.com (9, 9); Hockey Prospect (12); ESPN (7); TSN (7); USA Today (8)
Scout Analysis:
"Nylander is a dynamic player who is an elite skater with a creative skill-set. He has very good offensive hockey sense allowing him to create scoring chances in a variety of ways while making plays at top speed. His offensive instincts make him extremely dangerous in one-on-one situations and a scoring threat every time he is on the ice." – Dan Marr, Director of NHL Central Scouting

Logan Brown, Forward

2015-16 Team: Windsor Spitfires (Ontario Hockey League)
2015-16 Statistics:
59 games played, 21 goals, 53 assists, 74 points, 40 penalty minutes
Final ISS Ranking:
7
Mock Draft Projections:
NHL.com (7, 6); Hockey Prospect (7); ESPN (13); TSN (9); USA Today (12)
Scout Analysis:
"He's still growing, which is amazing because he's already big as it is. His skating has developed and I just think it will take a little more time for the rest of it to catch up to his body. When he has the confidence and assertiveness to play to his size and play a little more selfishly, then his numbers will rise and good things will begin to happen." – Dan Marr, Director of NHL Central Scouting

Key: NR – Not Ranked; NHL.com has two mock drafts, completed by Adam Kimelman and Mike G. Morreale. Their respective predictions appear in that order.
