Anyone know much about Barclay Goodrow? I see he's an overager, any chance he gets signed/has he already? It's a sweet name, I'll give him that.

Good for Bigras. Top defensive d-man over guys like Zadorov, Nurse and who have you in that division.

As Jux said, San Jose has signed him.

I went through and put the NHL team each player belongs to or what draft they're eligible for in the original post. Hopefully that's helpful for future browsers

I'm a little surprised that Connor McDavid didn't even finish in the top three of the Smartest Player category, given one of the reasons people rave about him is his hockey sense.

Nice to see Konecny's name pop up a few times.

Brendan Bell will make an awesome bottom 6 NHLer one day and fan favourite.

I'd take these awards with a grain of salt. Some good picks no doubt but some questions as well. They're nice accolades but certainly no deciding factors.

He wasn't even nominated. If he had been, he likely would have been a finalist. However, Otter's management elected to nominate Brown instead of McDavid, and Brown placed third in the conference.

Maybe he is not the best at offense or the best at defense, hes just 'very good' at both. So he did not win any of those awards .

You sure that's how it's done? I thought the only thing players were nominated by their team for were the individual awards, like Player of the Year, Defenseman of the Year, etc. where each club nominates one representative. I thought the coaches poll was different and multiple guys could be represented in one category.

IMO the top draft overager available from the OHL.

Great size, willingness to work the wall, forecheck, throw the body. Has decent enough puck skills and scoring instincts to suggest he could develop into an in close scoring threat. His size alone makes him tough to handle in front of the net, especially with the man advantage, where he's been very effective. Will also drop the gloves and is a terrific "enforcer."

He could definitely develop into a bottom 6 NHL forward. I wouldn't be surprised if he went as high as the 3rd round, but see him more as a 4th-5th.

Probably one of the more interesting and exciting choices for me was Konecny at number 2 for hardest worker. Over the last 2 years, there has been so much hype surrounding this kid about his offensive potential, I've just taken for granted that his compete level would be similar to some of those all skill no grit guys that tend to light up the juniors. But for him to live up to the offensive hype this year and still be named one of the hardest workers, he seems to be becoming more and more promising as a prospect. Excited to see what he can do next year.

Great thing about Konecny is even if he's not scoring, he's always making something happen out there whether its a great back check, a big hit, a scoring chance, etc. he's always working his tail off.
