OHL's Draft Eligible Rankings: November

by Dominic Tiano (@DominicTiano)

October was the first full month of the 2013-2014 Ontario Hockey League season and that means it’s time for our first updated rankings. Today, we rank the top 20 skaters eligible for the 2014 NHL Draft for the first time. Players passed over in previous drafts are not ranked, except when it comes to the goaltenders, where we rank the top 5 eligible despite draft year eligibility.

Injuries (and a couple of suspensions) have hit some of the players, although not quite like the 2011 draft year that swept through the draft class. We have included stats from last season as well as stats as of the end of October along with their previous rank: where we had them ranked coming into the season.
