The NJPHL is keeping track of their prospects - next up: Kyle Rhodes!
Being selected in the annual OHL Priority Selection draft of 16-year-old players has been at times an accurate prediction of future NHL drafts. The Ontario Hockey League is one of three major junior leagues that are under the Canadian Hockey League (CHL). The CHL produces approximately 54% of all NHL players. The CHL is generally considered the world's top professional development junior hockey league.
Kyle got into his first hockey skates at age two. When he was four-and-a-half he started in the Richmond House League and at nine, played for the Virginia Express out of Fredericksburg. He joined the Richmond Royals at age 10 as a Pee Wee, and continued with the Royals until signing on with the Richmond General’s inaugural U16 Tier 1 team at age 13, where he skated two seasons for Coach Kevin St. Jacques. Kyle recently turned 16 this past December.
The National Junior Prospects Hockey League would like congratulate Kyle for his ongoing and consistent hard work, dedication and determination to play ice hockey at the highest level possible. We wish him all the best with the OHL’s Guelph Storm team this upcoming season.
