ISS Hockey (International Scouting Services) is the world’s leading independent scouting service and information provider on hockey prospects. Founded in 2002, ISS Hockey independently scouts, evaluates, analyzes and ranks players worldwide. ISS Hockey rankings, evaluations, game reports, player reports, player profiles, and more are exclusively available to hockey professionals through the HockeyTech Scouting & Player Management System. ISS makes its annual NHL Draft Guide available to hockey fans and sports media. The ISS NHL Draft Guide is widely recognized as the de facto draft reference guide.
Through the online viewing platform at FASTHockey.com, hockey’s leading provider of live hockey games online, HockeyTech will continue to provide viewing access to all NAHL, NAPHL, NA3HL and NA3EHL games.
