Brandon Francisco's Birth Date and Draft Eligibility

I traded emails today with Brandon Francisco's agent Brian Feldman.

Brian has helped to shed light on the correct birth date for the Sarnia Sting winger. There are conflicting reports due to a different date being printed in the OHL media guide for his Priority Draft, than the one being seen on the OHL and Sting websites. Many (like myself) had heard the one from the media guide was correct, giving Francisco a November birth date and making him eligible for the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.

Well...turns out the date listed on the OHL website is correct. Francisco was born in February, which means he IS eligible for the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

I've edited my early season top 30 to reflect this change. HERE.

Thanks to Brian Feldman for the heads up!
