OHL’s 2020 Draft Eligible Players to Watch

What a difference a year can make.

The 2019 National Hockey League Draft was one to forget for fans of the Ontario Hockey League as it turned out to be the worst draft in the history of the league.

But 2020 promises to be different, at least for now. The quality at the top of the class appears to be in better shape then 2019 and goes deeper as the rounds pass by.

We here at OHL Writers are taking a page out of NHL Central Scouting’s Players to Watch list and coming up with our own. While Central Scouting rates the players as A, B or C prospects, we take it a step further and added a D.

Here’s how we break it down:

A rating – first round potential

B rating – second or third round potential

C rating – forth or fifth round potential

D rating – sixth or seventh round potential
