As is always the case, things have changed considerably since our Initial OHL Draft Ranking in early November. Some of the biggest events of the season such as The Battle of the Border and the Whitby Silver Stick Tournament, along with tournament stops in Brantford and Waterloo, and some league showcase weekends result in anyone who follows closely gaining a better feel for the overall talent pool.
Our Top 10 remains mostly the same with Quinton Byfield (York-Simcoe Express), Jamie Drysdale (Toronto Marlboros), Antonio Stranges (Little Caesars 16U), Dylan Peterson (CIHA), Cole Perfetti (Vaughan Kings), Cameron Tolnai (Oakville Rangers), and Lleyton Moore (Toronto Marlboros) all within the top seven spots again. They are joined by three newcomers in Cameron Peters (Toronto Marlboros), Stephen Halliday (Toronto Marlboros), and Owen Power (Mississauga Reps) who round out the Top 10.
You'll notice that four members of the Toronto Marlboros are in the Top 10 with a few others just on the outside looking in, evidence of how truly impressive of a squad they are. The Marlboros and players from other GTHL teams dominate the Top 40 and we expect that to be the case through the first two rounds on draft day.
In the next week, you can expect our first edition of “Inside the Scouting Notebook.” This feature piece polls our area scouts as they list top players from their regions who they feel deserve special recognition. We will also have coverage of the Toronto Marlboros Holiday Classic and a tournament report to follow.
