U18 Draft Takes Place Tonight

April 10, 2019 - Ontario Hockey League (OHL) - Owen Sound Attack News Release

The Owen Sound Attack are picking 9th overall in the selection process, as well as a pick in the 2nd round, 29th overall. If the Attack pick a goalie in the first two rounds, they will also have a 3rd selection, 49th overall.

Announced in January, 2017, the concept of the OHL Under-18 Priority Selection was developed with full support from Hockey Canada's three Ontario Branches including the Ontario Hockey Federation (OHF), Hockey Eastern Ontario (HEO), and Hockey Northwestern Ontario (HNO).

Eligibility for the 2019 OHL Under-18 Priority Selection included all Midget players (2001 and 2002 birth years) not currently on an OHL Member Team Protected List who were carded with an Ontario based Midget AAA Hockey Club within the Ontario Hockey Federation, Hockey Eastern Ontario, or Hockey Northwestern Ontario in the current season.

Owen Sound has had success with the draft, selecting Griffin Wilson last year, and acquiring Kaleb Pearson from the Flint Firebirds after being selected in 2017.
