Rumors still persist in the scouting community that young 14-year old phenom John Tavares, may yet play in the OHL next year.
After taking a huge publicity hit when it considered allowing the drafting of 14-year olds, the Ontario Hockey League did a 180 turn because of the bad publicity this generated. As an Independent scouting firm, ISS is in favour of increasing (16yrs.) the draft age, however we can’t help but agree with OHL Commissioner Dave Branch’s thinking on allowing "exceptional" 14 year-olds like John Tavares the opportunity to play. “While we don't agree that 14 year-olds should be drafted, I believe in exceptions,” added ISS Chief scout Mark Seidel stating that he is the most impressive prospect that he has seen since Sidney Crosby. In the Toronto Marlies first 67 games this season, the 6-foot-1, 180 pounds Tavares scored 83 goals and 64 assists. The OHL's loss is another league's gain.
