Well, Compher and McCoshen area already playing college hockey so forget about them. Eichel is dead set on BU. Hanifin is supposed to be fast-tracking to play at BC next year. Milano just changed his college commitment. Greenway maybe?

Eichel was drafted by Halifax but chose BU, didn't he?

Halifax also released his rights to get a compensatory pick and then Saint John picked him in this past draft.

None of the players listed in the OP are confirmed to play in the CHL in 2014-15.

I agree, maybe Greenway, but he likely won't make a decision on his future until later this season anyway. He's the only one uncommitted in the OP.

As for the rest of the players listed in the OP, three of the four 2013's are already in college, so no for: Compher (Michigan), McCoshen (BC) and Santini (BC). The other, de la Rose, is playing pro in Sweden and will be eligible for the AHL, so I don't see the CHL as a better fit over either of his pro options. Each of the 2014 eligibles have commitments to legit college programs: Larkin (Michigan), Milano (BC), Schmaltz (North Dakota) and Tuch (BC); while Connor (Michigan), Eichel (BU), Hanifin (BC) and Tkachuk (Notre Dame) are pretty set in their commitments as well.

Don't think any are happening, though you can't rule out QC and Americans, maybe, maybe Eichel and Hanifin end up in QC together with Erne.

Tkachuk coming to London may depend on the NHL status of Domi/Horvat/Zadorov. He probably won't want to come to a team that figures to be pretty weak without them

I say Tkachuk comes in 2015/2016 after his NHL team signs him, good chance Werenski reports too. People said Mccarron wouldn't report and he did

Any chance Jeremy Bracco or Luke Opilka go to Kitchener?

Doubt De La Rose leaves his senior team to play junior hockey. If he comes over to NA next year it's to play in the AHL.

My best guess is that of those guys, only Greenway ends up in the OHL.

I also expect Werenski to head to London at some point in the future.

Wouldn't be surprised to see Larkin or Tuch in the OHL next season. Both are expected to be first rounders and could be persuaded by NHL teams. Both likely walking onto good teams as well.

One American I am curious about as a Guelph Storm fan is Luke Kirwan. Currently uncommitted I believe.

With CHL teams nothing is done till it's done.

A player who says he isn't reporting is only not reporting when he's moved on, until then you never know.
