OHL’s Draft Eligible Statistical Leaders: November

A pair of premier Ontario Hockey League defencemen lead the way among players eligible for the 2018 National Hockey League Draft.

Ryan Merkley of the Guelph Storm and Evan Bouchard of the London Knights sit one-two among draft eligible players in points with 31 and 30 respectively. They are followed by Aidan Dudas of the Owen Sound Attack and Allan McShane of the Oshawa Generals with 27 apiece. A trio comes next with 26 points followed by another trio at 22 points apiece in what is shaping up to be a tight race.

The Dynamic Duo blueliners also lead draft eligible players in assists with Merkley leading the way with 24 while Bouchard has 22 helpers on the season. Naturally, the pair lead all draft eligible defencemen in scoring with each having more goals, assists and points than any other two defencemen combined.

Interesting in the goal scoring department is that consensus top two pick in the draft, Andrei Svechnikov of the Barrie Colts, is still in the top ten despite having played in just 10 games because of a wrist injury. Svechnikov had 10 goals in 10 games before the injury and trails leader Serron Noel of the Oshawa Generals by just 4 goals.

Listed are the leaders in a variety of statistical categories and include players eligible for the NHL Draft for the first time only. Always refer to the OHL website for official stats.
