OHL Writers Final Draft Rankings

Over 100 preseason, regular season and playoff games in arenas, countless others on video, and the 2019 National Hockey League Draft begins this Friday in Vancouver British Columbia.

We’ve compiled the top 40 players and top 6 goaltenders from the Ontario Hockey League and Ontario Junior Hockey League that we believe could hear their names called – although we don’t believe all of them will.

Three players (*) are re-entering the draft and three players (**) are re-entering the draft for the second time. Not included on our list are players that were not signed by their drafting club from the 2017 draft that may have been eligible to re-enter.

Players are ranked in the order that we believe they should be drafted. You will also see where NHL Central Scouting ranked the Ontario players. That ranking doesn’t show overall rankings but among Ontario players only.
