Ekblad and McDavid were definitely deserving of exceptional status and there's no reason to blink a kid from getting ES if he deserves it. That would defeat the purpose of it.

I watched Sean Day at Silver Stick in Whitby two weeks ago and he was easily the best player there as an underage '98 defensemen. I truly have never seen a player of his ability at the defensive position. He is what McDavid would be as a Dman and he's 100% worthy of ES. Best skater I've watched in years and he's got the smarts, size, hands and overall skill to step right into the OHL. To be honest, he could probably play a top-4 role on any OHL club RIGHT NOW

And, yes...he is Canadian
