Happy New Year everyone! Here’s to hoping for a fantastic 2022 and hockey everywhere will be able to continue their seasons.

As you know, the Ontario Hockey League had to postpone a large number of games due to the COVID-19 pandemic as over half the league is in COVID protocol. As much as I hate to admit it, I hope that the OHL follows the lead of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League and suspends all action for a couple of weeks.

That said, there were games played in the month of December, and as is always the case, we look at players eligible for the National Hockey League Entry Draft and the statistical leaders in a variety of different categories. Some players have obviously played more games than others due to the postponement of games, but eventually, those games will be made up.

In past years, we’ve always looked at first time draft eligible players. But, because of the lost OHL season a year ago, there are too many players re-entering the draft this time around and we are including them. There are some third-time eligible players re-entering the draft, but we are not including them here with the exception of Brett Brochu of the London Knights as he only made the 2020 NHL Entry Draft by 5 days. If an NHL team is interested in those players, they are more likely to sign a professional contract as free agents rather than a team using a draft pick on them.

One of those players re-entering the draft is Tucker Robertson of the Peterborough Petes. Robertson leads all draft eligible players in points, goals and goals, sits second in assists and third in faceoff winning percentage. A pair of Hamilton Bulldogs are also on the list. Avery Hayes is second to Robertson in goals and fourth in points, while Gavin White is second among defencemen in points and assists.

While we take great care in compiling stats, always refer to the OHL website for official statistics.
