As he moves through his sophomore OHL season at nearly a point-per-game pace, Ottawa 67’s forward Sasha Chmelevski continues to draw notice from the International Scouting Service.

Midway through his NHL draft-eligible year with 25 points in 29 games, the scouting service ranked Chmelevski 19th on its list of top 2017 draft prospects, released this week.

The 17-year-old from California was the centrepiece of last year’s blockbuster trade that sent Travis Konenecy to the Sarnia Sting. In return, the Barber Poles got Chmelevski and a boatload of draft picks, though the skilled centre’s campaign was cut short due to injury. But in his short OHL career to date, Chmelevski has made a name for himself, particularly thanks to a starring role for the United States at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial in 2016, where he led the tournament in scoring with five goals and five assists as the Americans claimed a silver medal. He has followed that up with a strong OHL showing with the Barber Poles and, most recently, Chmelevski was selected to represent Team Orr in the annual CHL/NHL Top Prospects Game on January 30.
