OHL Draft – The Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection
The OHL Draft ( OHL Priority Selection) made it’s debut before the 1969–70 OHA season. It has taken place on a yearly basis since then.
Prior to 2001, the OHL held the OHL Draft (OHL Priority Selection) in public venues. The OHL Draft’s were attended by players and family. Since 2001, the OHL has held the OHL Draft online. The online version of the OHL Draft has reduced stress on players who sat in the venue hoping to be selected by an OHL team.
