INTRODUCING THE OHL’S DRAFT ELIGIBLE PLAYERS

In previous years of doing this, we have only looked at players eligible for the National Hockey League Entry draft for the first time. You don’t need reminding that the past 18 months have been nothing like we’ve ever seen before.

Because the Ontario Hockey League did not have a season, there weren’t a lot of eyes on OHL players. And that means that many of them will be re-entering the draft for 2022. Mind you, the majority won’t be selected by NHL teams, but they might just do enough to get camp invites and such.

We normally bring you player profiles on the players we feel will get drafted, or in our opinion those that should get drafted. While we can’t do it for every player on this list, we will endeavor to bring you that coverage throughout the season.

OHL teams had 230 players listed on their training camp rosters eligible for the NHL Entry Draft for the first time and re-entering the draft.

After the first week of regular season games, there are 208 players still remaining on rosters that are draft eligible. Of those 208 players, 113 of them are eligible for the first time while 95 of them re-enter the draft.

Also, of those 208 players, 23 are goaltenders, 64 are defensemen and 121 are forwards.

Here are the players eligible for the draft in order of teams:

  1. Without looking to indepth as a Sarnia Sting fan I see that one of our 04’s is missing from this list: Ryder McIntyre RW 15-Jul-04 6’3″ 216 First Time Eligible was our 3rd round pick 51st overall in 2020

    1. Thank you. I left him off because today he wasn’t listed on the Stings roster page. Once the Sting update their roster page, it will be updated. Thanks again.
