In the scouting world, there's no distance that will keep scouts from travelling to view a must-see prospect. Back in late January, Head Scout Brendan Ross was visiting family in beautiful Kenora, Ontario on the frozen banks of the Lake of the Woods and had heard about their AAA team playing. After his plane landed in Winnipeg and he and his wife travelled two-and-a-half hours east to Kenora, they made a pit-stop at the local rink. Ross had heard buzz earlier in the year about a 2001-born prospect that was flying under the radar so he felt it was the perfect opportunity to check this team out. Fortunately, the Thistles coaching staff were more than happy to sit down and talk about some of their players and the one player that came up frequently was a kid by the name of Carter Tresoor.

With the OHL Playoffs set to kick off this evening, we’re here to provide an updated OHL Mock Draft. The four non-playoff teams have been confirmed and it’s Barrie who will officially hold the 1st overall selection, one that has received endless debate this season. Jack Hughes has yet to confirm his preferred route of development - OHL or NTDP - and it places the Barrie Colts’ staff in a very difficult decision on how to use the 1st overall selection.
Hughes’ decision will ultimately affect how the dominoes fall on draft day. As the consensus top ranked player, Hughes will be headed to the USA NTDP Evaluation Camp this upcoming weekend to perform alongside 40 other top American skaters. The rumour mill will surely be buzzing.
The Guelph Storm, who have yet to officially announce who will take over the vacant GM role, but they sit with the 2nd overall selection. North Bay and Saginaw round out the top four spots, respectively.
