I believe Crosby contacted the QMJHL in hopes of being exempt and was denied.
Tavares applying to the OHL for exceptional status got the ball rolling for the exceptional status clause in the CDM that was introduced in 2005.
Before that, it was a regional decision.
Post 2005, it's Hockey Canada in conjunction with the regional governing body of the player (i.e. Ontario Hockey Federation).
