The Ontario Hockey League's annual Priority Selection draft gives teams a chance to regenerate their rosters – replacing promoted or overage players with fresh, young faces from minor hockey.

The Ottawa 67s picked 17th out of 22 teams in the first round and chose 16-year-old David Perklin from the midget-level Toronto Marlboros.

The left winger from Mississauga scored 19 goals and 26 assists in 66 games, and was on the OHL Showcase Cup-winning team in March. He was named first star of the final game, notching a goal and an assist.

He also put up five points in six games at the Canada Winter Games in February.

Head coach Chris Byrne described the 6'2, 190 pound Perklin as "a big bodied power forward" in a news release.

With their second round selection the 67s chose another player with size – 6'2 defenceman Mike Vlajkov from the St. Catherines Falcons.

They then went a bit smaller in the third round with 5'8 forward BJ Salero from the Don Mills Flyers.

Vlajkov, who scored ten goals and 19 assists in 45 games, was described as having a big shot that should help on the powerplay by Salero had 26 goals and 25 assists in only 38 games.

The Kingston Frontenacs made a splash with a familiar name, selecting forward Max Domi with the eighth overall pick.

Max is the son of former Toronto Maple Leafs enforcer Tie Domi, who has said his son wants to play college in the United States. That would mean Max would have to avoid the OHL to keep his eligibility.

Domi had 27 goals and 30 assists in 30 games with Don Mills this past season.

Another local player of note is right winger Nicholas Baptiste from Nepean, who was taken sixth overall by the Sudbury Wolves.

Baptiste had 39 goals and 48 assists in 42 games with the bantam AAA Ottawa Senators before hurting his shoulder at the Canada Games.

The Barrie Colts took defenceman Aaron Ekblad with the first overall pick.

At just 15 years old, the Belle River, Ont. native is the first player to be granted "exceptional player" status for early entry into the draft since John Tavares, who currently plays for the New York Islanders.
