If it is the same as last year, all registered AAA minor midget players in Ontaro receive it.

Not every AAA player gets it. On my son's GTHL team only 7 of the players received it. 3 received it about 4 weeks ago (they are highly ranked players), the balance received it this week.

Not sure if same as last year but every player received the questionaire. Same with "draft list"...in previous years a draft list was posted on the ohl site a day or 2 before the draft...it contained approx 400 kids, it was good in a way because if you were not on that list you were not going to get drafted. That way you wouldnt sit in front of the screen and refresh every 10 seconds. Last year every minor midget player made the list they posted just before the draft...while it was nice to see your kids name on the OHL priority selection site alot of kids (and parents) were crushed when the name didn't show as selected....maybe some things have changed but this should have been explained at the Program of Excellence camps as it was for us 94 parents.

Every player did not receive the email / questionairre this year. Only those on the OHL list did.

Unlike last year, any player can be drafted, you do not need to be on the OHL list.

They will not be posting the list of approved players this year.

Are you saying that is year any player can be drafted?

Or last year, any player could be drafted?

Do players need to be approved by central scouting on some sort of priority list?

In past years a player had to appear on the OHL CS list to be drafted.

This year, any player can be drafted. The OHL CS list is a guideline but teams can make their own decisions.

No this came about because kids were being left out when the clubs had interest in them but were left out of the CS List. It was just unfair for those that impressed down the line but weren't on CS list and as a result weren't taken.

They send questionnaires for one reason only and that is to solicit the top players, BUT it doesn't mean anyone else can't get drafted anymore. The old system prevented that from happening.

Nobody knows.....anyone who really knows from OHL or OHF wouldnt be on a site like this.
Compounding the problem are the parents that are friendly and open until the Minor Midget year when they clam up and don't tell the truth about anything. So when someone says "only 7 players got the questionaire" you can can never really be sure.
Been through it 3 times, only my youngest was drafted last year, last year everyone got the questionaire and all minor midget players were on the "draft list", check the OHL site for the 2010 priority selection and you will see 1500 names and stats.

For my 90 check 2006 Priority draft and see list was limited to 400 or so.

My 89 in 2005 was the same only 400 so when the list came out on the Thursday before the draft day...if you were not on it you were toast.

To all 95 parents....this is the year that everyone lies and misleads no matter how long you have known them!

Everyone is draft eligible but not all receive letters. On our team at least half have not received any letter or questionnaire so the idea that it goes out to everyone is not true.

Each team will have a draft list, no doubt still being compiled.

All draft eligible players are rated based on a letter, indicating where it is expected they will be ranked and their merits relative to the rest of the draft class.

Letters signify the level of prospect the player is. AA is top 2 rounds, A is 3-6 rounds, etc.

No players ranked EP would have gotten a questionarre, as they have not been identified as a potential draft choice.

As others have said, move on.

My thoughts

February 12 2011, 9:43 AM 

From our experience last year - our whole team got the ohl questionnaires.
Lots of us also received many letters - I think my son got 4 or 5 - others on our team got one from each team. My point is don't read to much into this. The crucial time will be one week prior to draft day. That is when the phone will start ringing. My son had 8 telephone interviews and I believe he had 2 telephone interviews from the same team up to the night before the draft. Point is never got drafted. He had buddies who only had 2 or 3 telphone interviews and got drafted one person on his team got drafted and never got any calls or letters. So its to show you that you never know. So relax all of you parents. Just tell your son to keep playing like he always does and not to think about that because just because you get drafted in the OHL it doesn't mean you will ever play a game for them (unless you are the top 2 rounds). Junior A hockey is great hockey and also opens soo many doors - especially if your kid does well in school. It is our first year Junior A and I tell you already have some schools interested in our son for NCAA. His goal always has been to get a div 1 scholarship. Now as a parent that is all you can ask for - for them to get a good education doing what they love. If your son is good enough whatever route he takes they will find him.

Listen guys everyone in AAA and a few AA exceptions gets that ohl questionnaire. That is the absolute truth. Its NOT a big deal at all.
It has no bearing on the outcome of draft. It just gives them an idea "if you were to be drafted to the OHL" would you go or do you have NCAA aspirations.
From what I've read from this site there will be many disappointed parents come draft day. Ask yourself this question - will you be more disappointed then your son if he is not drafted. Too many parents are trying to live their dream while putting so much pressure on their child. Very sad. My advice, take a step back and just enjoy the last year of minor hockey because if you think it gets any easier after that your absolute wrong. My son has learned so much this year, one of the biggest obstacles was being mentally tough. When you get to the next level it will be a rude awakening for many parents and children.
Goo luck to all of you come draft day.....and remember OHL is not the be all end all if not drafted.

Re: OHL Qustionares?

February 13 2011, 5:20 PM 

the only reason we're wondering is because we just want to know if anyone is considering drafting our sons. And we look for anything that will give us an indication. I imagine a lot of people are like me -- I don't really care, but I know my son has worked hard for the past couple years with that goal in mind. And for him there's been no feedback. No agents calling, no scouts calling, no team letters. One offhand comment from his coach about people asking about him, and this questionnaire. So does it mean anything? 250 yes. 1500 no.
May 7th is going to be a hard day for a lot of boys, and it would just be nice if they could be prepared.

And they are getting letters from teams and no questionarres because the team is interested, but they are not on the top 250 list.

Fairly straightforward no?

He is playing JR A and having a ball.80% of kids drated this year will never play a game in the OHL, you still have to make the team that drafted you. So lets drop all this here say crap and wait for draft day, many surprises. GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!

"Only top 2 rounds make the OHL"?????

Hmmm...

Here's a breakdown of the 543 players that have played in the OHL this year (1990's, 1991's, 1992's, 1993's and 1994's) below.

As you can see players come from every round of the OHL Draft and "free agents" make up a considerable amount of the league's current players who were never even selected in the OHL Draft.

First round picks only account for 14.2% of the current OHL players.

1st round pick - 77 players (14.2%)
2nd round picks - 77 players (14.2%)
3rd round picks - 59 players (10.9%)
4th round picks - 55 players (10.1%)
5th round picks - 41 players (7.6%)
6th round picks - 33 players (6.1%)
7th round picks - 25 players (4.6%)
8th round picks - 15 players (2.8%)
9th round picks - 13 players (2.4%)
10th round picks - 10 players (1.9%)
11th round picks - 15 players (2.8%)
12th round picks - 10 players (1.9%)
13th round picks - 8 players (1.5%)
14th round picks - 13 players (2.4%)
15th round picks - 6 players (1.1%)

Free Agents - 43 players (8.0%)

Import Picks - 37 players (6.9%)

Top 250 get the questionaire- fill it out and retuen to OHL central scouting. Does this mean they were the first bunch? and are ranked from 1-250

Why other years there was 300?

i know a lot of kids that did not receive one and they are on top teams. I know of a kid that got one on a bottom end team (but is a very good player)

Simple, those 250 players will for the most part go somewhere in the draft unless they state they're going another route or in some cases some kids get lost in the shuffle of team's draft pick preferences (i.e Need lots of D for the OHL team's future, etc.). The remaining players will be selected even though they got no letters and you do NOT have to be on a top team to be drafted, you only need to have shown enough potential to attract ONE team and you could get drafted.

ACTION BULLETIN
TO: MINOR MIDGET MANAGERS & COACHES, ALLIANCE HOCKEY



CC: TONY MARTINDALE, ALLIANCE HOCKEY

TED BAKER, OHL

FROM: JOE BIRCH, OHL



DATE: SEPTEMBER 1, 2010



SUBJECTS: OHL PLAYER ELIGIBILITY POLICY &

YEARLY COMMUNICATION PROCESS


Dear Managers and Coaches;
It is my pleasure to write each of you at this time. I hope that you are enjoying the start of your minor midget season and I look forward to working with you and your team.
We wish to connect with you as to inform you, your players and families of our Player Eligibility Policy regarding the OHL Priority Selection as introduce last season.
OHL Player Eligibility Policy:
All players who are properly registered and playing for an Ontario-based Minor Midget AAA hockey team or Minor Midget aged players properly registered and playing for a team in the Great North Midget League shall automatically be deemed eligible to be claimed in the OHL Priority Selection Process.
We feel that it is important to provide this information to all players and families as soon as possible.
Communication through 2010-11 Season:
We wish to obtain your players and/or families email address as to communicate the new policy directly to them.
In addition we will utilize the emails to correspond to all players and families throughout the entire minor midget year as to provide to them information regarding the Ontario Hockey League via the ‘OHL Prospects Newsletter’.
Finally, the League no longer distributes information packages and player questionnaires through traditional mail, thus it is important that we receive a primary email for every player on your team as to ensure they do receive an electronic player questionnaire (distributed in mid February to draft eligible players).
If you could please file your roster with email addresses (template attached should you wish to use) directly to me at jbirch@chl.ca at your earliest convenience it would be greatly appreciated.
We will distribute our first newsletter on October 1st, 2010.
Should you or families have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call me directly at the OHL office at 416-299-8700 ext. 230.
Thank you for your attention to this most important matter.

Sincerely,

Joe

the questionnaire is sent out to the kids that are rated by the ohl central scouting. if the player did not receive the questionnaire all it means is that the player is not on the radar of scouts or the ohl. the above letter from Mr. Birch only says that all m.m. players are eligible for the draft which is 100% true. but not all players are rated by the ohl c.s. not everyone got the questionnaire!!!

People, the OHL has had all season to find your kid. If they liked what they saw, then you are most likely part of this draft letter or no letter. Wait till MAY draft day.! What is everyone worried about. If they don't have your email and you didn't get a letter and should have, they will find you. This is not that complicated. You are all making this really more complicated than it is.

Re: OHL Qustionares?

The letter is not fake, but it is taken out of context.

Heres how it works, I have had a 92 and 94 go through it, and use to scout for an OHL team.

Before the 94 age group, players would be rated AA-C, and in order to be drafted they needed a letter grade. Teams had the option to add up too 5 players, which would be registered on the draft list with an "Add" beside their name.

At the 94 age group, it was decided that to much focus was put on making the list, so that everyone who was registered as a AAA player now was eligible at the begining of the year. No more adds.

The OHL still ranks players from AA-C, but now have every other play on the list as an "EP", meaning eligible player.

The questionares are sent out to players who are ranked in the AA-C group, which ranges every year from 300-400 kids.

That is the truth, I have no kid in minor Midget this year, no reason to say anything other then that.

Good luck to every kid out there.

I would suspect that some of the kids said they got the email when really they didn't. My son's team (ranked between 30-40) had about 8 players receive the email. If you're not ranked, you didn't get it. However, that doesn't mean you won't get drafted. A player only has to impress ONE GM in order to get drafted.

this questionnaire is not a showstopper.

parents having kittens over whether they got this to re-examine whether their kids are really ready for the next level.

focus on development and leave the letters & questionnaires for the dusters.

many receiving these are in for a surprise in May, seriously.

So how do you find out what ranking your son falls under... How do you gain access to this information through Central Scouting. We did not fill out the questionaire, seemed that everyone received the info.. Today we received another e-mail that requested that we fill it out and return.. Still un decided.

1. Have an honest conversation with your coach. Ask your coach have scouts been asking about my son ? Even 1 scout asking means he is on the radar. If none have asked then chances are not good in the draft.

2. Have you recieved an OHL Letter from a OHL Team / or a phone call from the GM or Head Scout. No, then chances are you wont be drafted.

3. Have you recieved the OHL questionaire. No, then chances are you wont get drafted.

..other things to consider

4. If you dont play the power player then chances are there are a few players ahead of you. You will probably not get drafted.

5. Ask yourself, if we are down by a goal with a minute to go are you 1 of the 5 or 6 players on the ice ? If no then chances are you will not get drafted.

6. Do your teammates look up to you ? no, then chances are you wont get drafted.

OHL teams also send coach's questionnaires. They are forms to be filled out by your son's coach and is to be sent back to the head scout of the team that sent the letter.

2. Have you recieved an OHL Letter from a OHL Team / or a phone call from the GM or Head Scout. No, then chances are you wont be drafted. Received letter from OHL team.

Legit agents or as they should be called at this age advisors are NHL certified agents.

They get nothing until the kid signs a pro contract.

If you are invited to the various "combines" it does not guarantee the boy will be drafted; however, if you are interviewed while attending an OHL function such as the OHL Combine...you are guaranteed to be drafted within the first 3 rounds. Think of it...they interview players who will go that early to play on draft day and only the first three rounds are streamed LIVE on the Internet. The remaining are known via a screen refresh...with no active host or commentary.

Last years combine was the first one.

They aren't doing it again this year.

They learned nothing new last year about the players, and with OHL Cup just ending and U-17 camps starting the OHL rightly decided that they young athletes had enough on their plate at this time of year.

The OHL combine is not part of the same process as the U17 camps. Run by OHL as part of the draft selection process.

U17 camps are Hockey Canada's process of selecting U17 Team Ontario (better process than the U16 for sure).
