The End of Major Junior Hockey?

There is discussion that several of the top prospects selected in the Ontario Hockey League’s Priority Selection will not be reporting for training camp. It seems that many of these players have shown interest in the NCAA Route rather than the Major Junior route. Many believe that his could be the beginning of the end of Major Junior, some feel it is run like a “baby pro league”. So far some unconfirmed reports state that the following players did not report for (major junior) training camp:

  • Mitch Lebar (5 overall)-University/College Unknown, reported to be playing for St. Micheal’s Buzzers
  • Ethan Werek (9 overall)-Boston University
  • Cam Fowler (18 overall)-Notre Dame
  • Jordan Mayer (13 overall)- University/College Unknown, reported to be playing for Kingston Voyageurs

It doesn’t seem likely that Matthew Duchene (5 overall)  will be attending training camp either as he is suppose to be playing in Michigan State (NCAA).
