    From what I've been told, both of his parents are Canadian.

    Tough to get information to confirm

    Bertuzzi wasn't at the USAH Select 15s last summer. You must be a US citizen to participate, but his absence doesn't necessarily guarantee a lack of citizenship. For example, Hughes wasn't there either.

    Didn't he apply for exceptional player status last year?

    Sounds odd as hell if he's not heading to the OHL after all.

    Oh sorry for the misunderstanding. When I made the comment the following statement wasn't posted.

    He did, I recently watched an interview with him saying it could have been a blessing in disguise getting rejected.

    Regardless he gets to choose his own path, he owes the OHL nothing.

    Is this because he didn't want to play for Barrie?

    I feel like he just preferred NTDP.

    Do people think he will still be a high pick in the OHL draft?

    I would think London would take him if he slid all the way to their pick.

    Who knows, London might, but they also passed on Bode Wilde last year with the same opportunity. Also, more teams are willing to gamble on these kids now. Sarnia took Weiss in the 1st last year and Saginaw took Wilde in the 2nd. Highest USNTDP kid the Knights took was Gruden in the 5th.

    If that path is lying and trying to bluff his way into getting picked by and playing for London...


    ...then perhaps he doesn't, but the OHL owes it to the fans to prevent this sort of thing. If he's serious about his decision he should be deemed ineligible for the draft and should not be able to play for anyone without first getting drafted.

    It isn't like Hughes has told OHL teams not to draft him because he isn't interested. There's something fishy about all of this.

    Well that's just not true at all, height is polygenic and not determined by one single parent's genes.

    The kid should be able to have some say in his development. Let's not pretend all situations in the OHL are equal and offer equal developmental options. London and Windsor are pretty clearly a tier above before you even get into the money rumors. These teams aren't giving you life changing money, even if rumored amounts are true. If you are in the CHL, most likely you are playing to try to get an NHL contract, and if that is best served by playing for a major program with better facilities and set up, like the Knights, then I'm all in favor of kids forcing their way there similar to Domi and Marner.

    Ya, that's great. And if all the players do that....there won't be an OHL. How about letting the league have a level playing field?

    You're a Leaf fan...what if Mathews and Marner both said they were going to the K, so the Leafs don't draft them. Then the Hawks pick them with their 1st and 2nd and they sign..., You in favor of that? Didn't think so.
