2019 Under-18 Priority Selection Recap
Submitted By OHL on Friday, April 12, 2019
Toronto, ON - The Ontario Hockey League welcomed 54 new players on Saturday through the 2019 OHL Priority Selection process, with 8 selections arriving via ALLIANCE Hockey teams.  This was the third annual OHL Under-18 Priority Selection which targets the top 2001 and 2002-born Midget AAA players from programs across the province.

3 46 Sarnia Diamond, Ben C 5.10.5 155 5/16/2002 Lambton Jr. Sting MAAA


The Erie Otters selected defenceman Connor Olson of the Elgin Middlesex Chiefs at third overall. He earned tournament MVP honours in Clarington last week and put up 30 points (8-22—30) over 35 games this past season.

“I wish the tournament could have ended better,” said Olson, whose Chiefs lost in the bronze medal game, “but it was a good season for us and I’m really happy with being drafted by Erie.

“I’m looking forward to seeing the facility and meeting the coaching staff there. The Otters have had a lot of recent success and I want to be a part of more in the future.”

The 6-foot-1, 170Ib blueliner models his game after Tampa Bay Lightning defenceman Ryan McDonagh, citing his dependability as something he finds admirable.

“It was obviously disappointing not to be drafted last year,” said Olson, who spent the 2017-18 season with the London Jr. Knights. “It motivated me to work harder over the summer though and that paid off with getting drafted tonight.”

A total of 54 players from 35 different teams were selected on Wednesday. For a full recap of the third annual Under-18 Priority Selection, click here.
