That's what I thought, it's quite rare. Tavares, Ekblad, McDavid, Day.

Thanks for clearing up the BS that certain people post on here.

Do the WHL and QMJHL even have the exceptional status rule? Or is it just that the OHL has had the best candidates? You'd think a guy like Crosby could have have gained the status if he applied for it.
