While I know people hate the hockey analogies out here, our hockey club outlines the likelihood of making it to the NHL in the expectations guide for parents. Some of the highlights, looking at kids born in 1975, which was the best year for kids born in Ontario in the NHL draft:

30,000 kids played at least some minor hockey in Ontario, born in 1975
22,000 still active in 1991, OHL draft year
105 played at least one game in the OHL, 90 played at least 3 years in OHL
23 played at NCAA D 1 schools - 128 then eligible for the NHL draft
48 players drafted, 38 signed contracts, 22 played at least one game in the NHL
By age 24, 11 players were active in the NHL

So, 30,000 started out, and 11 were in the NHL at age 24 - thats 0.0036%
