After a lost season to the COVID-19 Pandemic – It’s great to be back talking Ontario Hockey League hockey.
We begin our coverage of the 2022 National Hockey League Draft by looking at each OHL team and players eligible for that draft. Now, most teams have already made cuts so this isn’t a comprehensive list.
