Who Will the Final 3 be?

Max Lewis

With some unpredictable outcomes, the road to the OHL Cup powered by Under Armour has been everything but boring. Competition leading up to the tournament has seen several top-seeded teams knocked out during the first round of their respective playoff runs, while lower seeded teams were able to find a way to defy the odds. Now, with the tournament only one week away, fans and players are starting to get a better idea of what teams they can expect to see during competition.

Kings of Clinching

  • The Jr. Canadiens, Mississauga Rebels, Vaughan Kings, and Toronto Marlboros were all awarded a tournament spot after reaching the semi-finals in the Scotiabank GTHL Playoffs
  • The Whitby Wildcats, Quite Red Devils, Brampton 45s, and Ajax-Pickering Raiders (OMHA) were all granted spots after placing in the top four at the OMHA Championships
  • The London Jr. Knights and Waterloo Wolves (ALLIANCE) also clinched after making it to the playoff finals
  • The Eastern Ontario Wild (HEO) Bantam AAA team from last season will reassemble to compete in the tournament
  • The Northern Ontario Hockey Association (NOHA) will act as the representative from NOHA
  • TPH and Elite Hockey Group will represent the two spots for teams from the United States
  • The Thunder Bay Kings (HNO) will represent the one spot granted for HNO

Getting Wild

  • The Toronto Titans earned a Wild Card Play-In Game after defeating the Toronto Young Nationals in their play-in series
