Barrie Colts center Zach Hall, a well-regarded prospect for the 2013 NHL Draft, has been added to Team OHL for its Subway Super Series game against Team Russia on Nov. 8 in Guelph, Ontario.
Hall, a 5-foot-10.5, 172-pound forward, is tied for fourth in the Ontario Hockey League with 22 points in 13 games. He earned a C rating in NHL Central Scouting's preliminary rankings of players to watch for this year's draft.
2012 SUBWAY SUPER SERIES SCHED
- Game 1: Nov. 5 at Blainville-Boisbriand, Que.
- Game 2: Nov. 7 at Val-d'Or, Que.
- Game 3: Nov. 8 at Guelph, Ont.
- Game 4: Nov. 12 at Sarnia, Ont.
- Game 5: Nov. 14 at Vancouver, B.C.
- Game 6: Nov. 15 at Victoria, B.C.
Also added to the team is Erie Otters forward Connor McDavid, a 15-year-old playing his first season in the Ontario Hockey League after receiving "exceptional player" status last season to enter the league a season early. He's the youngest player in the 10-year history of the Super Series to skate in the event, which is considered a showcase for players eligible to skate for Canada in the World Junior Championship.
He's certainly proving worthy of the decision, as he leads all first-year OHL players with 18 points in 15 games. In fact, after going without a point in his first game, he has at least a point in a league-best 14 straight. He has four multipoint games in that span.
McDavid, a 5-foot-11.25, 173-pound center, is eligible for the 2015 NHL Draft.
Team OHL also will play Team Russia on Nov. 12 in Sarnia, Ontario.
