There is no history for the "exceptional player clause" out West, because there has been no modern day John Tavares to petition the Western Hockey League for early entry.

Well, WHL, meet Edmonton's Tyler Benson.

"We've never had that kid out West," confirms a former WHL GM and current NHL scout. "This is a different situation than we've ever seen."
