2022 OHL Draft Results



Round 1



The 2022 OHL Priority Selection is headlined by Michael Misa, the front runner to go first overall in the 2025 NHL Entry Draft.



Chris Ransom follow @DraftUtopia Last Updated: May 11, 2022.


  1. Saginaw Spirit: Michael Misa, C, (2025) A+ Grade

    The 5-10 161 lb Michael Misa had 16 goals, 27 assists, and 43 points in 27 regular season games with the Mississauga Senators. Michael Misa also had 10 goals, 10 assists, and 20 points in 7 games during the 2022 OHL Cup. He broke Connor McDavid's record for points during the OHL Cup.


    Michael Misa won the OHL Cup MVP as well as the Jack Ferguson Award for the first pick in the 2022 OHL Draft. Two other players who won both awards were Connor McDavid and Shane Wright.


    Despite being only 15, Misa has the speed, explosion, burst, agility, skating, foot speed, playmaking, passing, sniping, wrist shot power, wrist shot accuracy, slap shot power, slap shot accuracy, vision, offensive awareness, defensive awareness, and hockey IQ to succeed in the NHL. Michael Misa is someone who will push for the top selection in the 2025 NHL Entry Draft.


  2. Erie Otters: Malcolm Spence, LW, (2025) A+ Grade

    The 6-0 179 lb Malcolm Spence was teammates with Michael Misa in Bantam Hockey. Malcolm Spence had 29 goals, 27 assists, and 56 points in 28 regular season games. While Michael Misa was the playmaker center on the Mississauga Senators, Malcolm Spence was the sniper that complimented him. Malcom's feet are always moving. He's tough, he'll drive to the net and will take contact from the opposing defender to make the big play.


    Despite being only 15, Spence has the speed, explosion, burst, agility, skating, foot speed, playmaking, passing, sniping, wrist shot power, wrist shot accuracy, slap shot power, slap shot accuracy, vision, offensive awareness, defensive awareness, and hockey IQ to succeed in the NHL. Malcolm Spence is someone who will push for the top selection in the 2025 NHL Entry Draft since he's a projected top 3 pick in 2025 competing with Michael Misa and Jordan Gavin for that top spot.



  3. Sudbury Wolves: Nathan Villanueve, C, (2024) A+ Grade

    The 6-0 183 lb Nathan Villanueve is playmaker at center. He's the hardest hitting forward in the 2022 OHL Priority Selection. He gives the Sudbury Wolves their second blue chip prospect since Quinton Byfield who the Wolves took three years ago with the first pick in the 2018 OHL Priority Selection. Sudbury won the 2021 OHL Lottery after the 2020-2021 OHL season was cancelled due to Covid-19 and took Quentin Musty. Now they add Nathan Vilanueve to that core after having the worst regular season record in 2021-2022.


    Nathan Villanueve had 26 goals, 41 assists, and 67 points in 30 games in Bantam. Some OHL scouts described him as the best skater in the 2022 OHL Priority Selection. He's an elite skater with the acceleration and burst you want from a first line center. He was so impressive he got promoted to the CCHL for 7 games, but he'll play with the Sudbury Wolves in 2022-2023.


    Despite being only 16, Villanueve has the speed, explosion, burst, agility, skating, foot speed, playmaking, passing, sniping, wrist shot power, wrist shot accuracy, slap shot power, slap shot accuracy, vision, offensive awareness, defensive awareness, hard hitting, and hockey IQ to succeed in the OHL. Nathan Villanueve has a chance to be a special player for the Sudbury Wolves. He seemed confident in his interview and talked about how there are no shortcuts when it goes to transitioning from a Bantam player to an OHL player.


  4. Niagara IceDogs: Sam Dickinson, D, (2024) A+ Grade

    The 6-2 194 lb Sam Dickinson was team captain of Toronto Marlboros with Nathan Villanueve serving under him as alternate captain. Sam Dickinson had 5 goals, 34 assists, and 39 points in 2021-2022. He's an elite and complete defenseman who knows how to make crisp passes with precision and accuracy. He also takes away space well and will separate man from puck. He's got hardly any weaknesses which is a big reason he got promoted to the Ontario Junior Hockey League in the OJHL for one game prior to being picked by the Niagara IceDogs in the 2022 OHL Priority Selection.


    Despite being only 16, Dickinson has the speed, explosion, burst, agility, skating, foot speed, playmaking, passing, sniping, wrist shot power, wrist shot accuracy, slap shot power, slap shot accuracy, vision, offensive awareness, defensive awareness, and hockey IQ to succeed in the NHL. Sam Dickinson has a chance to challenge Aron Kiviharju to be the top defenseman in the 2024 NHL Entry Draft. At the very worst, I see a top 10 pick in the 2024 NHL Entry Draft.



  5. Sarnia Sting: Porter Martone, RW, (2025) A+ Grade

    The 6-1 170 lb Porter Martone had 41 goals, 63 assists, and 104 points with the Toronto Jr. Canadiens this season. He will be a first line right winger complimenting Max Namestnikov at center right out of the gate as a rookie. Porter Martone is competive as hell and he's a player that the Sarnia Sting can win an OHL Playoff series with as early as next season.


    Despite being only 15, Martone has the speed, explosion, burst, agility, skating, foot speed, playmaking, passing, sniping, wrist shot power, wrist shot accuracy, slap shot power, slap shot accuracy, vision, offensive awareness, defensive awareness, and hockey IQ to succeed in the NHL. Porter Martone could end up developing into a fringe top 5 or a top 10 prospect in the 2025 NHL Entry Draft.


  6. Peterborough Petes: Jack Van Volsen, C, (2024) A+ Grade

    The 6-1 169 lb Jack Van Volsen was teammates with Porter Martone on the Toronto Jr. Canadiens this season. Jack Van Volsen had 46 goals, 64 assists, and 110 points in the GTHL.


    Despite being only 16, Van Volsen has the explosion, burst, agility, skating, foot speed, playmaking, passing, sniping, wrist shot power, wrist shot accuracy, slap shot power, slap shot accuracy, vision, offensive awareness, defensive awareness, and hockey IQ to succeed in the NHL. Jack Van Volsen gives the Peterborough Petes a player with a very calculated style of play who has a chance to be a day 1 impact player.



  7. Ottawa 67's: Henry Mews, D, (2024) A+ Grade

    The Ottawa 67's got the best player on the board at 7. The 5-11 175 lb Henry Mews had 14 goals, 64 assists, and 78 points in 2021-2022 making him the best offensive defenseman in the 2022 OHL Priority Selection. Henry Mews is the best defenseman Ottawa has drafted since Cody Ceci. He already skates and plays offense at an elite level, so it's possible his ceiling is higher than Ceci's. He can also elude forecheckers and demonstrates superb agility for a defenseman. If he can continue to do these things as he gets taller, Henry Mews could be a special NHL prospect down the road.


    Despite being only 16, Mews has the explosion, burst, agility, skating, foot speed, playmaking, passing, sniping, wrist shot power, wrist shot accuracy, slap shot power, slap shot accuracy, vision, offensive awareness, defensive awareness, and hockey IQ to succeed in the NHL. Henry Mews has a chance to be the third defenseman picked in the top 20 or the top half of an extremely strong 2024 NHL Draft for defenseman on the blue line.


  8. Oshawa Generals: Beckett Sennecke, LW, (2024) A+ Grade

    The 5-10 150 lb Beckett Sennecke had 35 goals, 43 assists, and 78 points in 2021-2022. He's got the vision and stick handling you want a future NHL prospect to have.


    Despite being only 16, Sennecke has the explosion, burst, agility, skating, foot speed, playmaking, passing, sniping, wrist shot power, wrist shot accuracy, slap shot power, slap shot accuracy, vision, offensive awareness, defensive awareness, and hockey IQ to succeed in the NHL. Beckett Sennecke could be a 2024 first round pick if he continues his dominant play in the OHL.



  9. Kitchener Rangers: Michael Hage, C, (2024) F Grade

    Kitchner is already stacked at center. The 6-0 168 lb Michael Hage has a USHL deal in place which is why the Kitchner Rangers get an F grade for wasting this pick. As for Hage as a prospect I love what he does. He's going to the Chicago Steel, the same USHL team that lured Adam Fantilli a potential top 3 pick in the 2023 NHL Entry Draft away from the OHL. Adam wanted to play with his brother who was on the Chicago Steel. Michael Hage is an A+ caliber prospect who had 46 goals, 70 assists, and 116 points. I love Hage as a prospect, this F grade is directed at Kitchener who once again tried to lure a player away from the USHL only to come away empty handed as this is the second year in a row, Kitchener failed to get their first round pick to sign with their team.


  10. Barrie Colts: Cole Beaudoin, C, (2024) A Grade

    The 6-2 190 lb Cole Beaudoin is an honest and hard working player who never takes a shift off. Beaudoin had 24 goals, 53 assists, and 77 points in 2021-2022. He protects the puck well and is strong for a player his age. A majority of his goals came from within ten feet which is why I gave him an A rade instead of an A+ grade, but this is an outstanding selection for the Barrie Colts.



  11. Owen Sound Attack: Benjamin Cormier, C, (2024) A+ Grade

    The 5-11 175 lb Benjamin Cormier had 38 goals, 34 assists, and 72 points in 2021-2022. Benjamin Cormier has a nose for the net.


    Despite being only 16, Barlow has the speed, explosion, burst, agility, skating, foot speed, playmaking, passing, sniping, wrist shot power, wrist shot accuracy, slap shot power, and slap shot accuracy to succeed in the NHL. His decision making, offensive awareness, defensive awareness, and hockey IQ is effective enough to get the job done in the OHL. Benjamin Cormier is gonna have to fight tooth and nail to crack the first round of the 2024 NHL Entry Draft.


  12. Guelph Storm: Jett Luchanko, RW, (2024) A+ Grade

    The 5-10 159 lb Jett Luchanko is a speedy winger with the explosiveness and burst you want a future first line winger to display. Jett Luchanko had 22 goals, 35 assists, and 57 points as an alternate captain on the London Jr. Knights in 2021-2022.


    Despite being only 16, Luchanko has the speed, explosion, burst, agility, skating, foot speed, playmaking, passing, sniping, wrist shot power, wrist shot accuracy, slap shot power, slap shot accuracy, vision, offensive awareness, defensive awareness, and hockey IQ to succeed in the OHL. He's got a chance to go early in the 2024 NHL Draft if he can continue to play at a high level.



  13. Mississauga Steelheads: Lucas Karmiris, C, (2025) A+ Grade

    The 5-10 167 lb Lucas Karmiris had 44 goals, 40 assists, and 84 points in 34 games in 2021-2022. He's always a threat when he's on the ice. He'll still find a way to make a big play even when the opponent pressures him or tries to check him.


    Despite being only 15, Karmiris has the speed, explosion, burst, agility, skating, foot speed, playmaking, passing, sniping, wrist shot power, wrist shot accuracy, slap shot power, slap shot accuracy, vision, offensive awareness, defensive awareness, and hockey IQ to succeed in the OHL. He should be a top 16 pick in the 2025 NHL Entry Draft as long as he maintains this level of play in the Ontario Hockey League.


  14. Oshawa Generals: Ben Danford, D, (2024) A+ Grade

    The 6-0 176 lb Ben Danford was a captain on his junior hockey league team. He's considered by some OHL scouts to be the best skating defenseman in the 2022 OHL Priority Selection.


    Despite being only 16, Danford has the explosion, burst, agility, skating, foot speed, playmaking, passing, sniping, wrist shot power, wrist shot accuracy, slap shot power, slap shot accuracy, vision, offensive awareness, defensive awareness, and hockey IQ to succeed in the NHL. Beckett Sennecke could be a 2024 first round pick if he continues his dominant play in the OHL.



  15. London Knights: Luca Testa, C, (2024) A Grade

    The 6-0 166 lb Luca Testa drives his team and was captain on his bantam team. Luca Testa has playmaking, passing, sniping, wrist shot power, wrist shot accuracy, slap shot power, slap shot accuracy, vision, offensive awareness that you want from a first line center. He had 34 goals, 25 assists, and 56 points in 22 games in 2021-2022. His puck skills when stick handling allow him to beat defenders with ease. One thing he could work on is going to the dirty areas of the ice more frequently. He's not confrontational enough yet, so London will have to develop that part of his game along with his defensive awareness if they want to maximize his hockey IQ for the NHL.


  16. Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds: Christopher Brown, C, (2024) D Grade

    Christopher Brown was a prospect with a second round grade on a majority of OHL draft boards. This wasn't a horrible pick, but it was certainly a reach.



  17. Kingston Frontenacs: Gabriel Frasca, C, (2024) A+ Grade

    The 6-0 162 lb Gabrien Frasca is the best center at winning face offs in the 2022 OHL Priority Selection. He had 13 goals, 22 assists, and 35 points through 28 games, but finished the season red hot in the second half getting 17 goals, 23 assists, 40 points in the second half allowing him to finish his season with 30 goals, 45 assists, and 75 points in 2021-2022.


    Despite being only 16, Frasca has the explosion, burst, agility, skating, foot speed, playmaking, passing, sniping, wrist shot power, wrist shot accuracy, slap shot power, slap shot accuracy, vision, offensive awareness, defensive awareness, and hockey IQ to succeed in the NHL. Coaches describe Frasca as a complete player who does everything well. He's the perfect replacement to Shane Wright whose heading to the NHL next season.


  18. Flint Firebirds: Kaden Pitre, C, (2024) C- Grade

    Kaden Pitre was a second round prospect. His 30 points in 31 games were quite underwhelming.



  19. Saginaw Spirit: Zayne Parekh, D, (2024) A- Grade

    The 5-10 156 lb Zayne Parekh is small for a defenseman. He's got traits you want from an OHL defenseman.


    Despite being only 16, Parekh has the speed, explosion, burst, agility, skating, foot speed, playmaking, passing, offensive awareness, defensive awareness, and hockey IQ to succeed in the OHL. Zayne Parekh needs to perfect his shot and add more muscle, but the rest of the traits to be a successful defenseman in the OHL are there. Correcting these areas of his game will ultimately decide if he's a day 2 pick or a late first rounder in the 2024 NHL Entry Draft.


  20. North Bay Battalion: Ethan Procyszyn, RW, (2024) A Grade

    The 6-0 181 lb Ethan Procyszyn may be the most versatile player in the entire OHL Priority Selection. He lined up at left wing, center, and right wing and plays in all three zones well. His 26 goals, 26 assists, and 52 points in 27 games stood out in a big way, but his best fit in my opinion is at right winger. He's very hard to handle off the rush and going to a place like North Bay where he'll get to practice against a veteran like Ty Nelson is only going to improve his game.


    Despite being only 16, Procyszyn has the speed, explosion, burst, agility, skating, foot speed, playmaking, passing, sniping, wrist shot power, wrist shot accuracy, slap shot power, slap shot accuracy, vision, offensive awareness, defensive awareness, and hockey IQ to succeed in the OHL. Practicing against Ty Nelson the first pick in the 2020 OHL Priority Selection for a full season is really going to allow Ethan Procyszyn to develop into a quality winger.



  21. Ottawa 67's: Frank Marrelli, D, (2024) A+ Grade

    The Ottawa 67's got a second defenseman and a team captain at 21 after taking an the best offensive defenseman at 7. The 5-10 186 lb Frank Marrelli had 12 goals, 22 assists, and 34 points in 2021-2022 as a team captain on the Markham Waxers. Pairing Henry Mews with Frank Marrelli is going to give the Ottawa 67's a very tough blue line to shoot against.


    Despite being only 16, Marrelli has the explosion, burst, agility, skating, foot speed, playmaking, passing, sniping, wrist shot power, wrist shot accuracy, slap shot power, slap shot accuracy, vision, offensive awareness, defensive awareness, and hockey IQ to succeed in the OHL. Frank Marrelli has a chance to be the sixth defenseman picked in the top 30 or top 32 of an extremely strong 2024 NHL Entry Draft for defenseman on the blue line. Right now 2022 and 2024 both look strong on defense after last years top heavy group with defensemen on the blue line while the 2023 NHL Entry Draft looks like a forward heavy draft where a defenseman doesn't come off the board until pick 16.


  22. Windsor Spitfires: Anthony Cristoforo, D, (2024) B Grade

    The 5-10 173 lb Anthony Cristoforo had a second round grade, but his 15 goals, 63 assists, and 78 points provide you with the eye popping production you want to see from a defenseman. This is a B grade for me since this is a slight reach, but the talent is there. In any other year pick 22 is a second round pick in some OHL Drafts.



  23. Hamilton Bulldogs: Marek Vanacker, LW, (2024) B Grade

    The 6-0 164 lb Marek Vanacker missed time early in the season with an injury. He's versatile enough to play left wing, center, or right wing. Marek Vanacker was a first round prospect on most hockey websites that cover the OHL Priority Selection.
