Priority Selection

The Priority Selection was first conducted the summer before the 1974-75 OMJHL season. It has been conducted annually since then. It is a selection of players aged 16 and 17 years old who are residents of the province of Ontario, the states of Michigan and Pennsylvania, and other designated U.S. states. The 1974-75 OMJHL season was the 1st season of the Ontario Major Junior Hockey League; the league having been created following a split with the Ontario Hockey Association. ...


Prior to 2002, the OHL held the Priority Selection in a public forum, such as an arena. Drafts were attended by many players and family members. In 2003 the OHL decided to hold the "draft" via the Internet, greatly reducing the costs the league and its member teams incurred in hosting a public draft. This move reduced the stress and pressure that prospective players faced with a large crowd present.


The Jack Ferguson Award is presented annually to the first overall selection . The award was named in honour of long time OHL scout and former Director of Central Scouting, Jack Ferguson. The Jack Ferguson Award is awarded each year to the top draft pick in the Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection Draft. ...
