Forward Alan Quine was taken second overall by the Kingston Frontenacs. Quine, a five-foot-10, 160-pound winger, led the Toronto Jr. Canadians to an appearance in the OHL Cup.

York Simcoe Express defenceman Ryan Murphy was selected third overall by the Kitchener Rangers, while the Oshawa Generals took Elgin-Middlesex Chiefs forward Boone Jenner with the No. 4 pick.

Left-wingers Matthew Puempel (Peterborough Petes) and Lucas Lessio (Niagara IceDogs), forward Ryan Strome (Barrie Colts), defenceman Curtis Crombeen (Owen Sound Attack) and left-winger David Broll (Erie Otters) rounded out the top 10.
