There is a battle down the stretch to be the NHL's top-ranked draft prospect, according to International Scouting Services.

ISS has released their mid-season rankings for the month of March and Plymouth Whalers forward Tyler Seguin is the new top dog on the list.

Seguin, 18, was ranked No. 1 overall among North American skaters by NHL Central Scouting in their preliminary list last year. The 6'1" 172-pound centre led the Ontario Hockey League in scoring this season with 48 goals and 106 points. 

Taylor Hall of the OHL's Windsor Spitfires dropped one spot to second on the list. Though he also tallied 106 points, Hall finished second in OHL scoring with 40 goals scored and six less games played because of his stint with Canada's national junior team.

Hall led a dominant Spitfire club has posted the OHL's second best record and is gunning for its second straight OHL Championship and Memorial Cup.

Hall's Windsor teammate Cam Fowler is rated third on the list and is the top-ranked defenceman.

Joining Hall, Seguin and Fowler in the Top 5 are forward Vladimir Tarasenko of Sibir Novosibirsk in the KHL and blueliner Brandon Gormley of the QMJHL's Moncton Wildcats.

Peterborough Petes winger Austin Watson, who was acquired in a trade from Windsor late in the season, saw the biggest jump over the last month going from 14th on the list to eighth. He scored 20 goals and 54 points in 52 games, with 20 points in 10 games in his stint with the Petes.

Rounding out the Top 10 is Moncton forward Kirill Kabanov at No. 7, Portland Winter Hawks winger Nino Niederreiter at No. 9 and American defenceman Derek Forbort at 10th.

The 2010 NHL Entry Draft will be held at Staples Center in Los Angeles on TSN on June 25 and 26.
