WHL Draft by Region

in Other News

 

Here’s a round by round breakdown of the draft by region:

BC accounted for significantly more first round picks than the other regions, with all but two coming from two organizations, Okanagan Hockey Academy with five, and NSWC with three.

The overall number of American draft picks is notable, though most were selected in the mid to later rounds; most likely because many top US prospects elect to stay in the US to qualify for Team USA development programs.

Pass indicates draft selections not exercised in each round.
