From the OHL, we should see a number of 95 goalies playing a bigger role this year.

Spencer Martin will get lots of opportunity to establish himself this year with the Steelheads. He definitely goes into the season as the top prospect for the draft next year.

Jordan DeKort will have a good opportunity with the Spitfires. He has great size and mobility, and had a strong season in Jr. B last year.

Alex Fotinos will have a chance to continue his upward growth with the Colts. He should split the season at the very least.

Charlie Grahame will be with the Bulls this season, after a season up and down between the Bulls and Jr. A last season. Great mobility and instinct.

Michael Guigivaz should have a better opportunity with the Petes this season after a stellar year in Jr. A last year.

Evan Morse may have his opportunity with the Attack this season.

Devon Williams will play a bigger role with the Otters this year. He will be on the American entry to the Ivan Hlinka next week.

Ken Appleby will suit up for the Generals this year. Another goalie with great size.

Jack Moylan should be getting more games with the Rangers this season after backing up much of last year.

Jason Dasilva will likely be backing up with the Storm this season.

Lucas Perissini is likely to be with the Spirit this season after a very strong year playing Midget hockey last season.

Justin Nichols will be getting time in the Soo after playing Prep School hockey last season.

That is twelve 95 born goalies likely playing in the OHL this season (I would say nine of them for sure). To put that into perspective, there were only 3 94 born goalies who played significant roles with their teams last season. It is an incredibly deep position in Ontario for the 95 age group.

I would look at Martin, DeKort, Fotinos, and Appleby to be the best shots at getting drafted next June. It should be a great year to watch these goalies grow.
