A trio of Storm players have been listed among NHL Central Scouting’s November ‘Players to Watch’ list for the 2019 NHL Draft which takes place June 21-22 in Vancouver, BC. 47 Ontario Hockey League players in total are listed.

The 47 Ontario Hockey League players are part of a greater Canadian Hockey League total of 128, which includes 48 players from the Western Hockey League and 33 from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Three OHL skaters were assigned an ‘A’ rating by NHL Central Scouting which identifies first round candidates including forwards Arthur Kaliyev of the Hamilton Bulldogs and Ryan Suzuki of the Barrie Colts.  Defenceman Vladislav Kolyachonok of the Flint Firebirds also finds himself in this group rising up from a ‘B’ rating in October.

A total of 14 OHL skaters and two goaltenders were included as ‘B’ rated prospects, while 25 skaters and three goaltenders were assigned a ‘C’ rating, indicating fourth/fifth/sixth round candidates.

Leading the way with representation on the list are the Guelph Storm, London Knights, Ottawa 67’s, and Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds each with four players.  The Barrie Colts, Flint Firebirds, Mississauga Steelheads, Oshawa Generals, and Peterborough Petes follow with three players each.

35 OHL players were selected in the 2018 NHL Draft including seven players chosen in the first round.
