Over the past three drafts, the Boston Bruins have selected nine players from the Ontario Hockey League, beginning with Tyler Seguin.
Their diligent scouting in the region looks set to pay major dividends in the near future.
While OHL alumni like Seguin, Ryan Spooner and Alexander Khokhlachev have moved up the ladder, a handful of Boston's best young prospects are thriving in Ontario.
In response to their strong seasons, four future Bruins were recently selected to compete on Team OHL in the Subway Super Series against a team of young Russian stars, including first-overall pick Nail Yakupov and the aforementioned Khokhlachev.
Impressive performances from all four have them contending for prestigious shots to represent Canada at the World Junior Championships.
Anthony Camara, Seth Griffith, Malcolm Subban and Dougie Hamilton are making names for themselves and putting up big-time numbers.
Here is a look at how they are faring in the OHL this season.
