2020 OHL Draft Ranking: February’s Top-150

With just two months before the 2020 OHL Draft commences, take a look at the top-150 eligible prospects. The top-end of this year’s ranking continues to be dominated by American-born players.

Just like that, Ontario’s top U16 minor hockey leagues are jumping into playoff action. After 30+ regular season games and numerous contests in tournament action, it’s time for the drive to the 2020 OHL Cup.

Heading into postseason action, it’s the perfect time to shout out this year’s top seed from each league. In the GTHL, the Toronto Jr. Canadiens captured the #1 seed with an impressive 28-3-2 record. In the ETA, it was the Quinte Red Devils who came out on top, riding a 28-5-3 record to the #1 seed. In the SCTA, the Southern Tier Admirals were at the top of the standings from start to finish, ending up with a 24-3-5 record to capture the #1 seed. Finally, the Elgin Middlesex Chiefs made history in the Alliance with an undefeated regular season, going 25-0-8 to grab the #1 seed.

February’s Top-150

With that said, here are the top-150 prospects, along with 10 honourable mentions, eligible for the 2020 OHL Draft as of February. A continuing trend within the 2019-20 U16 season has been the dominance of the American prospects and teams. This is showcased by the fact that 10 of the top-20 prospects are American-born, with a total of 12 of the top-20 playing hockey in the US this year. Due to that fact, this year’s draft day will be as wild and uncertain as ever. As the 2019-20 season progresses, we’ll continue to hyperlink personal player profiles to our monthly rankings, so be sure to follow along as the drive to the 2020 OHL Cup unwinds.
