Submitted By Tim Smart on Monday, April 23, 2018
KITCHENER, ON –

Two Elgin Middlesex Chiefs, Nathan Small and Rylan Bowers were named amongst the 130 players selected in Saturday’s OHL Priority Selection have been named to 2018 OHL Gold Cup rosters where they’ll represent their respective minor hockey associations starting Thursday May 3rd in Kitchener, Ont.

The Ottawa 67’s lead the way with 10 prospects competing in the annual showcase while the Peterborough Petes and Sudbury Wolves trail close behind with nine each.The OHL Gold Cup is an annual showcase event featuring top under-16 talent in Ontario. As part of the Hockey Canada Program of Excellence, select players from the OHL Gold Cup will be invited to attend the National Under-17 Selection Camp, where they will have a chance to compete with other top talent from across Canada, to earn a spot at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.

NEW FORMAT ANNOUNCED FOR 2018 EVENT:

The 160 players named to rosters for the OHL Gold Cup will have greater development opportunities and more training directly from Hockey Canada, thanks to a new format being introduced for the 2018 event. This is being done to create greater symmetry between the OHL Gold Cup and the National Under-17 Selection Camp, which is the next step for these players in the Hockey Canada Program of Excellence.

“After five successful events under the old format, we are pleased to have developed a new structure which better serves the development of the players,” says Phillip McKee, OHL Gold Cup Steering Committee. “Working under the guidance of Hockey Canada staff, we believe this new format will help prepare Ontario players for the rigours of a national selection camp.”

New features of the OHL Gold Cup in 2018 include: three off-ice education sessions, dedicated position-specific practices, and a full-team game-day skate. Additionally, the format of the tournament itself has been updated to feature three pool games and one crossover game on the final day. The OHL Gold Cup champion will be the winner of the A1 versus B1 crossover game.

• All eligible players from the first round of the 2018 OHL Priority Selection have been named to OHL Gold Cup rosters (19 of the 20).
