2011 NHL Entry Draft Results

The results are in! The 2011 NHL Entry Draft is complete. A successful draft for the Ontario Hockey League as 46 players were drafted (4 more than last year and the same as 2009). That's about 22% of all players drafted.

Below you can find the results for OHL players, as well as my draft ranking before the draft (for comparison's sake).

Some general comments:

  1. First of all, congratulations to all the players who got drafted. All your life's hard work culminated with this event. To all those who went undrafted (much to your disappointment I'm sure), stay strong and persevere because many players earn contracts after the draft at training camp (ask Tyler Hostetter), get drafted the second or third time around (ask Andy Andreoff), or end up signing an NHL deal as an overager (ask Jason Akeson). There is more than one way to get to the NHL.
  2. Biggest surprise in terms of a player going undrafted has to be Seth Griffith. He may not be big, but he does a lot of things really well.
  3. Also very surprised to see Michael Houser and Matt Petgrave go undrafted again. Petgrave is good enough to get an invite to Team Canada's summer camp (over many drafted players), but isn't good enough to get a call from an NHL team? Interesting indeed.
  4. Really happy to see Mitchell Theoret get drafted. Been pumping his tires all year and was starting to think I was a little bit crazy. The Islanders got a good pick there.
  5. Also really happy to see Andrew Shaw get drafted. He deserved it after his Memorial Cup and playoff performance. Should make a great 4th line energy guy at the next level
  6. For the rest of the draft results, go here.

    I'd be interested to hear your thoughts and comments on draft weekend.

What happened to Trojanovic...rated 169...202...222...undrafted. I have watched him play and he just seems to have great upside. He was very solid on an underwhelming Petes team.
