Look at this draft alone. MacKinnon refused to report to Baie Comeau, Rychel also refused to report to Barrie until he got traded to Windsor to be with his dad.

Hodgson told teams he wouldn't report if they drafted him, same with Duchene. Its never going to stop.

Edit: Forgot Hall and Seguin as well.
Does this happen in the WHL as well? I didn't realize this was a thing.
