An overager is not someone in their last OHL season prior to being eligible to turn Pro. An overager is a player playing in the OHL, despite meeting the age requirements of a Pro league (AHL).
the poster said Saad was an overager...that was incorrect, he was not an overager by any terms.
I have my own view of what an overager is, it isnt a misconception, it is what I define as an overager. A player that is under 20 years old is not an overager, usually those players that stay in the CHL for their 4th or 5th year will "likely" be above 20 due to them starting out at 17 in many cases.
