This week’s installment of Around the OHL features one of the top young talents in junior hockey, Shane Wright of the Kingston Frontenacs.

Wright has done some very exceptional things in the league since he was granted exceptional status, allowing him to be drafted as a 15-year-old. His play this season has many hockey fans already looking forward to the 2022 NHL draft, where Wright will be one of, if not the top pick.

The guys also check in with Victor Findlay, who looks at some recent OHL grads playing university hockey in Canada as the U Sports playoffs are right in the thick of things. Findlay also calls games for the Mississauga Steelheads, so he sheds some light on the playoff picture in the Eastern Conference, and how it should be smooth sailing for the Ottawa 67’s.

Speaking of playoffs, Mike and Jake share their thoughts on which path to the finals they would prefer: a relatively easy first three rounds where the team isn’t really battle-tested but is healthy for the finals, or a team getting a bit beaten up but operating on full cylinders after being tested earlier in the playoffs.
