The Ottawa 67’s have selected centre Cam Tolnai with their first-round pick, sixth overall, in this year’s OHL Priority Selection Draft.
The 16-year-old Oakville native comes to Ottawa fresh off a dominant Minor Midget season in which he scored 31 goals and 80 points in 35 games for the Oakville Rangers.
The left-handed centre, listed at 6-foot, 165-pounds, was a clear choice for General Manager James Boyd, Head Coach Andre Tourigny and the rest of the Barber Poles scouting staff to become the latest in a long line of talent selected in the first round by the Barber Poles.
“Cam is an extremely intelligent centre and playmaker who is a consistent point producer,” said 67’s General Manager James Boyd. “He has a lot room to grow his game and he’s going to have a chance to develop with the 67’s into an elite offensive talent.”
The 67’s have six picks through the first four rounds (sixth, 35th, 44th, 51st, 66th and 76th overall). Ottawa will then pick 86th, 106th, 126th, 166th, 206th, 226th, 246th and 290th overall during the 15-round draft.
