With regards to Yan, he was born in Alaska, but has been an OHL area resident for long enough. Stefan Noesen rule here. Much like Noeson (who was born in Texas, a WHL territory) if you have been a resident for long enough (Yan has been) then there are no issues. Noeson and Yan are actually extremely similar cases.

Not sure who is giving the info, but everyone within the leauge that I have talked to (from Woodley to Baker) all have confirmed that the two will be part of the draft in April.

There is a third player who could be a top 40 player who has residency issues, there may be a mix up between him and Yan?
Have you ever seen another year with so much speculation with US and Russian players enetering the OHL draft ?
Everyone on may have an impact at the top end of the draft.
