Miami Loses Recruit Tyler Nother to OHL

Budweiser Gardens, home of the London Knights - Bruce Bennett

Miami loses a top '98 prospect to the Ontario Hockey League

Heading into this spring's OHL Draft, we noted that it was becoming increasingly rare for NCAA schools to take commitments from Canadian-born players prior to those players being drafted in the CHL, and showing some sort of interest in passing on the CHL to play NCAA hockey. One exception to that was Miami, who took a verbal commitment from 6'4" defenseman Tyler Nother last December.

Today, Nother announced that he has committed to play for the London Knights of the Ontario Hockey League, thus forfeiting his NCAA eligibility:

Nother was selected in the third round of this year's OHL Draft by the Knights, a slight drop from where he was expected to be picked, in part of his commitment to the RedHawks.

The RedHawks have been burned in recent years by the OHL, losing key players like Tyler Biggs, Ryan Hartman, and Patrick Sieloff. This departure stings a little less because it happened early enough that Miami will have ample time to find a suitable replacement.
