As I have said before I am not a goalie expert but Im going to comment on this.
Jumping to the OHL as a backup at 16 is a questionable move. Like skaters, goalies need to play games. There are second year back ups in the OHL right now that are caught behind more seasoned vets that are on fire. These guys are still not seeing regular action. Every team situation is different but have a good look at the current roster, who they have in their system, and make a good decision. If you are asked to back up in the OHL in all likelihood you can secure a very good Jr A or B position and work as a call up to the OHL.
