Just under half the players competing at Hockey Canada’s under-18 selection camp are coming from the Ontario Hockey League.
21 OHLers heading to development camp were selected in the first round of the OHL draft.
Hosts Jake Jeffrey and Mike Stubbs chat with a pair of OHL coaches as Trevor Letowski (Windsor Spitfires) and Cory Stillman (Sudbury Wolves) join the show. The guys also talk about the trade that sent Michael DiPietro and check in with Alex Formenton as he heads off to Canada’s World Junior Selection Camp.
Jake Jeffrey and Mike Stubbs talk about the importance of the tournament for young players entering the league, and how scouts use it as a measuring stick as they prepare for upcoming NHL drafts.
