OHL’s Draft Eligible Regular Season Statistical Leaders

As we’ve had to do many a times this season. Let us preface this by saying things would look very different if Barrie Colts’ Superstar Andrei Svechnikov had not missed 2 months of the regular season. But let’s not allow that to take away from the fine season some of the other players have had.

With the 2017-2018 season having ended, these are the final statistic for players eligible for the 2018 National Hockey League Draft for the first time.

One of those fine seasons belongs to London Knights star defenceman Evan Bouchard. Not only did he lead all draft eligible players in points, but he led the entire Ontario Hockey League in points by a defenceman and seventh in points among all players.

Svechnikov, the scoring star that he is, led all draft eligible players with 40 goals in 44 games. That averages out to .91 goals-per-game, almost twice as much as Aidan Dudas of the Owen Sound Attack who finished the season with 31 goals in 68 games or .46 goals-per-game.

Svechnikov finished second to Bouchard in game winning goals with Bouchard tallying 7 while Svechnikov had 6. Svechnikov finished second to three players in powerplay goals, with the trio notching 10 and Svechnikov popping in 9. He was also tied with Pavel Gogolev of the Peterborough Petes with 3 hat tricks on the season.

Here are the leaders in a variety of categories. The OHL column shows the player’s ranking in the entire OHL.
