OHL talent ready for 2018 NHL Draft

 

The stage is set for Ontario Hockey League stars to make the next step towards their National Hockey League dreams at the 2018 NHL Draft in Dallas, Texas, with first round selections beginning Friday night followed by rounds two through seven on Saturday.

61 OHL players are listed in NHL Central Scouting’s Final Draft Rankings including top North American skater Andrei Svechnikov of the Barrie Colts, top defenceman Evan Bouchard of the London Knights at number four, and forward Barrett Hayton of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds and Serron Noel of the Oshawa Generals rounding out the top-10 at nine and 10 respectively.

Since 1969, a total of 2,319 OHL players have been selected in the NHL Draft representing close to 21% of all players chosen by clubs and a figure higher than any other league solidifying the OHL as the number one supplier of NHL talent.

One year ago the OHL enjoyed another strong showing at the 2017 NHL Draft in Chicago with 42 players selected including five first round picks.

Since 2000, 250 OHL players have been selected in the first and second rounds with more than 85 already competing in over 300 career NHL games.

Best of luck to all players and their families at the 2018 NHL Draft!
