By Tony Saxon, Guelph

The Guelph Storm chose three players in Wednesday’s OHL U18 Priority Selection, all of them players they consider late bloomers.

The draft is for 2001 and 2002 birth years playing midget hockey who are not on any team’s protected list.

A total of 54 players were chosen in the third-annual U18 draft.
