It'd be partially up to Swift Current (or another WHL team) if they wanted Black to occupy one of their three overage spots. He wasn't drafted, but Reid Boucher's linemate Charles Sauralt played this year in the OHL and turned 21 last month.
Trying to think of somebody off the top of my head, but I think there were a few drafted players who stayed as an overager this year because teams didn't have room in the AHL due to the lockout. (Just found one: Carolina 2010 pick Austin Levi stayed in the OHL this year).
