Tuesday, April 16, 2013Richmond Hill, ON -  The Ontario Minor Hockey Association [OMHA] is proud to announce the two teams that it will send to the 2013 Under 16 OHL Gold Cup taking place May 9 – 12, 2013 at the Sportsworld Arena in Kitchener. The four day tournament will feature 8 teams representing the ALLIANCE, GTHL, HNO, NOHA, ODHA and OMHA stacked with the top 160 Under-16 players in Ontario.

The two OMHA teams were comprised after extensive regular season evaluation that culminated in an evaluation camp held in Oakville March 30th. The team features 40 OHL Priority Draft selections from 16 Minor Midget AAA teams.

“The OMHA has a long and proud tradition of developing some of the top hockey talent in the world.” said OMHA U16 Director of Operations, Chris McCleary, “This event will be a step in identifying and developing the next crop of elite players in Ontario.”

“The OMHA is proud to participate in the Under 16 OHL Gold Cup. This program has become the entry point for players into the Hockey Canada Program of Excellence.” said Ian Taylor, Director, Development Programs for the OMHA. “This program represents a development opportunity to give players the tools to succeed in the high performance stream of Long-Term Player Development [LTPD] and also begins to identify players to participate in international competitions.”

The 2013 OHL Gold Cup will be used as part of an evaluation and selection process for Team Ontario that will compete at the World Under 17 Challenge. Following the OHL Gold Cup, 68 players will be identified to attend the Under-17 Team Ontario Camp where the Team Ontario Staff will select the 22 players who will represent Ontario.
