The 2017 Ontario Hockey League (OHL) Priority Selection was held Saturday, April 8th, 2017. The OHL conducted the annual Priority Selection process by way of the Internet to allow eligible players and their families, as well as fans across the league to follow the draft in real time online.

The annual Priority Selection featured 300 picks over 15 rounds. For the 10th straight year the OHL Priority Selection Draft Show showcased the first three rounds through a live video stream online including live pick-by-pick results.

North American players that reside in the province of Ontario, the states of Michigan, Pennsylvania and New York and other designated U.S. states east of the Mississippi River born January 1, 1998 through December 31, 2001 were eligible for selection through a 15 round process.

The order of selection was determined by inverse order of finish during the past OHL regular season schedule of games with non-playoff teams selection ahead of playoff teams. (Read More about the Ontario Hockey League Here)
