2021 OHL Under-18 Priority Selection

The 2021 OHL Under-18 Priority Selection took place Wednesday, June 9 at 12:00pm. It was streamed live on the OHL’s YouTube channel and the OHL Results page, with further coverage on this page, as well as our draft page.

The OHL facilitated a U18 Priority Selection Draft Lottery to determine the order of selection, with each of the League’s 20 member teams having an equal opportunity to draw the first overall pick. Results were determined by a computerized random number generator, with the lottery process overseen by Mr. Robert Bayne, partner with the law firm Filion Wakely Thorup Angeletti LLP.

Established in 2017, the OHL U18 Priority Selection is a two-round process save and except for the allowance for an additional selection by a team in the third round if they’ve chosen a goaltender with one of their first two selections. Players eligible to be selected are those 2003 or 2004-born U18 AAA players not currently on a CHL member team protected list who were registered within the OHF, HNO or HEO during the 2020-21 playing season. This year’s selection will be structured in a serpentine arrangement, with the order of selection in the second round in inverse order from that of the first.

The Kitchener Rangers selected:

 1 (12th) Mitchell Ferras C 178cm 149lbs  January. 16, 2004  Brantford 99ers U18 AAA Brantford, ON
