I'm planning a big update on the OHL Draft for tomorrow, but this is worthy of its own post today.
The Kitchener Rangers have dropped Notre Dame recruit Cam Fowler from their protected list to ensure they get a second round compensation pick in Saturday's draft.
This ends a good deal of speculation that Fowler would be signing with the Rangers, and should probably come as a huge relief to Notre Dame fans. There's still the possibility of another team taking him the draft on Saturday and convincing him to sign, but it seems unlikely. NTDP forward Jeremy Morin is still property of the Rangers, and it wouldn't be a huge surprise to see him playing there next season.
