Canadian World Junior gold medalist Nico Daws of the Guelph Storm is North America’s top-ranked goaltender, one of seven OHL netminders included on the list.

The rankings also include three recent OHL commits listed in the International section of the edition including ninth-ranked Hamilton Bulldogs forward Jan Mysak, 35th-ranked Kingston Frontenacs forward Martin Chromiak and fifth-ranked Soo Greyhounds netminder Nick Malik.
