Although it's only partially relevant I'll share a story with you. Last year at the NHL Combine, I spoke with the 5th rated goaltender in North America. Steven Michalek. I asked him if he ever considered taking the CHL route at some point, and he told me "No CHL team has ever contacted me, so I suppose it would be something I'd have to think about and take into consideration if it ever happened."
So with that said, I think there are definite avenue's that get overlooked at this level. It's very possible that sitautions get assumed, and it happens so much that a player gets completely overlooked. Michalek was rated 1 spot higher than Jordan Binnington by NHL Central Scouting.
