Below is a complete list of our 2018 Priority Selection players joining Gens Nation.
Round 1, 11th Overall
Previous Team: Vaughan Kings AAA
OHL Central Scouting says: Ty is a competitive player that would do almost anything to score a goal or win a hockey game. He is a good skater that can beat defenders wide and win loose puck battles all over the ice. He possesses a junior-level shot already. It's hard, accurate and he gets it on net very quickly. Tyler competes very hard each shift and isn't shy to battle against the bigger defender and usually comes out with the puck. He is a 'gamer' and the type of player you win with.
Round 2, 28th Overall
Previous Team: Toronto Jr. Canadiens
OHL Central Scouting says: Dylan is a big, skilled center that is a presence every time he is on the ice. He is a tall, lengthy skater that has deceiving speed in open ice. He has elite puck skills and is a threat whenever he has the puck on his stick. Dylan has good vision and makes the simple easy play when distributing the puck. He will challenge anyone offensively and isn't afraid to take it to the dirty areas to create offense for himself or his teammates. He has a high hockey sense and always seems to be in the right spot.
