Local Prospects Hoping To Hear Their Names At This Weekend’s OHL Draft
Local hockey players will be hoping to hear their names called at this Saturday’s OHL Draft.
Blenheim’s Brady Stonehouse will be the first name from Chatham-Kent called in the draft. Stonehouse starred for the Elgin-Middlesex Chiefs this season, sitting amongst the top scorers and performers in the Alliance. He is expected to go in the first or second round.
Ridgetown’s Zander Veccia, who also played for the Elgin-Middlesex Chiefs will be next off the board from Chatham-Kent. Expected to be a mid-round pick, Veccia was also one of the top scorers from the Alliance.
After Stonehouse and Veccia, a group of hopefuls from the Chatham-Kent Cyclones.
Ryan Gagner is a prospect who could potentially hear his name called in the later rounds, as is Jacob Julien. The duo were the top scorers for the Cyclones this season. While neither is a sure thing, they have solid mid-to-late round potential.
Other names to watch include Ayden Blain, Alec Webster, Cameron Gardiner, Cameron Graham, and Noah Szabo who could all fall into the final rounds of the draft.
Spencer Sova who played in Michigan this season and is a Windsor product has ties to Chatham-Kent. He’s expected to go in the first 4 rounds.
The OHL Draft takes place online on April 4.
