8 Colts at 2014 NHL Training Camps

Toronto, ON – The Ontario Hockey League is proud to announce that 161 OHL players have been invited to attend NHL Training Camps this season.

All 161 players competed in the OHL last season and are eligible to return for the 2014-15 season.  104 of those players are 1995 and 1996 birthdates, while 57 are 1994-born and would return as overage players. 

Of the 161 players, 113 were selected through the NHL Draft, 44 are free agent invites, and four are undrafted free agent signed prospects.  In total, 56 of the players attending NHL Camps have signed entry-level contracts including 35 who would return as overage players.

All 20 OHL clubs have sent at least three players to an NHL Training Camp with the London Knights leading the way by sending 15 players to various camps, followed by the OHL champion Guelph Storm with 13 players, and the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds with 12 players.

The OHL continues to be the leading supplier of talent to the NHL.
