16 Players Selected in 2024 U18 OHL Draft
The annual OHL Under-18 Priority Selection draft wrapped up Wednesday evening for players to be selected by OHL teams.

The top pick from the OMHA was Halton Hurricanes netminder Michael Newlove, chosen first overall by the Windsor Spitfires. He follows in a long line of top overall selections in this draft's history to come from the OMHA, including former first overall picks Kevin Henstock, Aidan Spooner, Mitchell Weeks and Victor Hadfield. In total there were 10 OMHA players selected in the first round.

The Ontario Minor Hockey Association had 16 players from nine teams picked. Nine forwards and four goalies were picked along with three defencemen.

The draft lasted two rounds with a team receiving a third round selection if they chose a goalie within their first two picks.
