You can judge a fine wine by its vintage. For the next generation of NHL goaltenders, the second and third round of 2012 was a particularly fine year. The top five NHL-drafted netminders currently playing in the OHL were drafted within 52 picks of one another, and all are currently playing key roles in the playoff fortunes of their respective squads.
For decades, when you think of hockey, you don’t often think of visible minorities. But that’s slowly changing. From Willie O’Ree to Grant Fuhr to P.K. Subban, it’s been proven that talent knows no race, religion, or colour — and Owen Sound Attack forward Jaden Lindo hopes to be a role model for the next generation of hockey players.
The OHL has long been known for its ability to pump out marquee offensive talent, but don’t sell the league short on the blueline. This year’s elite draft-eligible defensemen, like Aaron Ekblad and Roland McKeown, have a number of role models within the league whose path they can follow to the draft podium and beyond.
