With the OHL season cancelled, the 2021 OHL Draft order will be determined by a draft lottery tonight.
The 2021 OHL Priority Selection itself will take place June 4-5, 2021 live online at ontariohockeyleague.com.
For the first time, the draft will be held over two days, with Rounds 1-3 on Friday, June 4 beginning at 7:00pm and Rounds 4-15 on Saturday, June 5 beginning at 9:00am.
“We’re very excited to welcome the next wave of promising young players to the Ontario Hockey League,” said Commissioner David Branch in an OHL news release. “On behalf of the League, I’d like to wish all players the best of success now and going forward as you pursue your hockey goals.”
The Draft Lottery will take place tonight at 7:00pm and will be livestreamed on the OHL YouTube channel.
All teams will have an equal chance at the first overall pick.
Following the first round, the draft order will reverse, alternating each round.
