TheScout.ca presents our Final 2019 OHL Draft Ranking.
Leading the way is Exceptional Status 2004 birthdate Shane Wright, who despite being a year younger than his peers, has gone wire-to-wire as the top ranked player. Shane won’t have to look far for his teammates as fellow Don Mills Flyers stars hold the second, third and ninth spot in our rankings. The sharp-shooting and multi-faceted Brennan Othmann comes in at #2, the consensus pick as the top defenseman in the age group Brandt Clarke comes in at #3, and towering rearguard Roman Schmidt is our 9th ranked skater.
Mason McTavish and Connor Lockhart, two stars from the Ottawa area that we have gone back and forth on all year, hold down the 4th and 7th spots respectively.
The fifth and eighth spots sees another pair of teammates with Sasha Pastujov and Dylan Duke of the Compuware 16U team being our top two ranked American players in this year’s OHL Draft class.
Rounding out the top 10 is Jeremy Wilmer, an offensive dynamo from the North Jersey Avalanche.
In our Top 10 Goalie ranking, a difficult season-long process has culminated in North Bay Trappers netminder Ben Gaudreau taking the top spot as the best goalie prospect in the 2003 age group.
Area Scouts Ryan Stacey, Ryan Ferizovic, Brent Craswell, Jason Gray, Trevor Revoy, Enrico Caruso, and Spencer Elsby have joined Director of Scouting Andrew Sykes in contributing to this ranking.
