Postby Green Hornet on Sun Apr 02, 2017 5:56 pm

So the OHL Draft is this Coming Saturday,any Rumors Floating Around as to who Knights Might Be Going after in this Draft?

I see in One Mock Draft that the Knights Might Grab Centre Alex Turcotte from the Chicago Mission.

Also How many Picks Do we Have in this Draft?

Thoughts Gang on Draft this Saturday Morning?

From what I've seen, Turcotte is the consensus 2nd overall pick. Would take a little bit of finagling for London to grab him way down where they're picking

I thought that this was Brady Tkachuk's draft year into the O, am I wrong about that? Thought maybe Matthew would talk him into reporting if he ended up needing any convincing. Certainly worked for Matthew

Into the NHL?

He was born on September 16th, so he missed out on the NHL draft for this year by one day. He is eligible for the NHL draft in 2018.

Thanks KnightHawk, do you know if he's already committed anywhere for next season? Any chance London signs him as FA? Does any OHL team hold his rights?

Haven't heard.

Nope. See below:

Does any OHL team hold his rights?


Yep. WE do!

4 67 London Brady Tkachuk 5.09.5 146 1999-09-16 C St. Louis, MO St. Louis Blues AAA 16U Other NA

This is from the 2015 OHL draft. For some reason, the site won't let me put in just the 2015 OHL draft. So, I pulled up the results for the 2016 draft, and there was a drop down menu that allowed me to select the 2015 draft.

Committed to BU where his dad played. I think he probably goes to BU although I am hoping we are still talking to him and have a chance. Great player. Plays very similar to Matt. Absolute beast along the wall. Real strong kid. Good offensive tools as well. Point per game player right away if he comes here.

Cool! Thank you for that link, attackisback. :)

Meanwhile, on twitter, Bob McKenzie has stated that the Colts will make London native Ryan Suzuki the #1 overall pick. From twitter:

Bob McKenzie‏Verified account @TSNBobMcKenzie 8h8 hours ago

Barrie Colts are expected to make Ryan Suzuki of London the first overall pick in Saturday's OHL draft.


I was hoping he would be still available to play for his hometown team. Oh well.
