Three players out of the Ontario Junior Hockey League hope to hear their name called during the NHL Draft in Vancouver this weekend.
Eric Ciccolini of the Toronto Jr. Canadiens is the top-ranked player in the OJHL for the 2019 NHL Draft.
National Hockey League Central Scouting released its final draft rankings in April.
Ciccolini is slotted in the fourth round among North American skaters, at 108. Ciccolini, who was honoured as Top Prospect of the year in the OJHL and OHA, is committed to Michigan.
Zach Uens of the Wellington Dukes is ranked 130, in the fifth round. The Belleville product is a Merrimack commit.
Ty Glover of the Buffalo Jr. Sabres is at 215, in the seventh round. The native of Great Britain, who lives in London, Ont, is committed to Western Michigan.
All three players starred in the OJHL during the 2018-19 season.
Players born between January 1, 1999, and September 15, 2001, are eligible for selection. Twenty-four Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL) skaters and goaltenders were among those listed.
