@TheScoutDotCa - 2017 U18 OHL Priority Selection Ranking

U18 Priority SelectionThe Ontario Hockey League is set to conduct it's first U18 Priority Selection Draft on Wednesday, April 12th whereby Ontario Midget skaters across the province have a chance to be selected in the four round draft. If teams opt to select a goaltender in one of those four rounds, they will be rewarded with an additional selection in a fifth round. The U18 Priority Selection is a new intiative aimed at improving Midget hockey across Ontario and giving players a second chance at being selected into the Ontario Hockey League. 

Throughout the season, Midget scouts Dermot Anderson (ETA/GTHL), Trevoy Revoy (ETA/GTHL), Mat Milberry (HEO U18) and Andrew Sykes (ALLIANCE), Matt Barbara (ETA), along with Brendan Ross (Director of Scouting) have been watching closely in order to identify potential targets. The following is the list compiled by our team's scouts including a Top 40 2000-born prospect list with subsequent tiers of players and a Top 10 prospect list of 1999-born propects (with additional tiers of same aged peers).
