In reply to European players in OHL draft? posted by Clay Lane on 07 July 1999 at 06:28 GMT:
Yes a European player of Junior age (under 20) can be drafted by an OHL team. Each junior team (OHL, QMJHL and WHL) can have 2 non north american players on their rosters and they can only use the players that they draft. Even when the europeans are drafted the OHL, QMJHL or WHL team must work out a release for that player from his european team otherwise he stays in Europe.
