The seventh annual OHL Under-18 Priority Selection draft wrapped up Wednesday evening for players to be selected by OHL teams.
The top pick from the OMHA was Richmond Hill's Andrew Artenosi, chosen second overall by the Niagara IceDogs. He follows in a long line of high overall selections in this draft's history, including former first overall picks Kevin Henstock, Aidan Spooner, Mitchell Weeks and Victor Hadfield. In total there were four OMHA players selected in the first round.
The Ontario Minor Hockey Association had eight players from eight teams picked. Three forwards and three goalies were picked along with two defencemen. See a full list of all the OMHA players chosen at the bottom of the page.
The draft lasted two rounds with a team receiving a third round selection if they chose a goalie within their first two picks.
