If Laughton was considered to be a Crosby type even in his GTHL days he would have been granted exceptional status & drafted at age 14 instead of being drafted at age 15.

Just for comparison sake here's other forwards who were considering phenoms heading into the OHL:
-Connor McDavid

-John Tavares

I'm not one to put everything into stats but there's a big difference in their numbers compared to Laughton.
