The Ontario Hockey League today announced the final ballot for both the OHL All-Star Team voting process, with final results to be announced on Friday, June 10. The final all-star ballots were established through a voting process that saw OHL General Managers vote for players/coaches within their own conference. They weren’t allowed to vote for players/coaches on their own team.
The final all-star ballot consists of the three top vote recipients from each conference at centre, left wing, right wing, goaltender and head coach, in addition to six defencemen from both the East and West. A total of three OHL All-Star Teams will be announced following the final round of voting.
Among the final nominees was Mississauga Steelheads forward James Hardie. During this OHL season Hardie set a new franchise record for points by a forward with 77 points (41G, 36A). The Steelheads forward finished on NHL Central Scouting’s Final list as the 148th Ranked North American Skater.
