I was a really good scorer but wasn't big enough to play my preferred role (power forward kind of) which is why I didn't make the OHL in my draft year

Would I be meeting the requirements?
Yes it does. The Whalers alone had 10 players go to the ECHL and 2 go to the AHL. Other teams had callups to these leagues as well as a few international ones if i remember correctly. The age requirement is 20 i believe so you may have to wait a little while but it certainly could be a good opportunity down the road for you.

I encourage anyone who is a bit young and may want to try out in the future to come to a game in Danbury this upcoming season and you can check out the league. The tryout camp itself will be open to the public as well i believe.

Also here is a video from this past season
