OHL Writer’s Draft Eligible Player of the Month for November

It’s now December, most folk’s favorite month of the year. The holidays are fast approaching, the World Junior Championships are around the corner, and the Ontario Hockey League season is past the one-third point.

But before we look forward, let’s look back at the month of November and our pick for the draft eligible player of the month.

Each month, we select one player eligible for the National Hockey League Draft for the first time he stood out just a little bit more then the rest of the draft class. And for November, our choice is Philip Tomasino of the Niagara IceDogs.

On the season, Tomasino has appeared in 26 games and has contributed 11 goals and 13 helpers while also being very good defensively with a plus-17 to show for it.

Also considered were Arthur Kaliyev of the Hamilton Bulldogs and Thomas Harley of the Mississauga Steelheads.
