Greater Toronto Hockey League Announces Details Surrounding 17th Annual Midget All-Star Festival

The Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL) has announced details surrounding the 17th annual Midget All-Star Festival. This year’s event will showcase players from the League’s Midget “A”, “AA”, and “AAA” divisions on three separate nights.

The festival will kick-off on Friday, February 2, 2018, at 7:30 p.m. at Scotiabank Pond with the Midget “AAA” showcase. Players from the Midget “A” division will take to the ice on Monday, February 5 at 7:30 p.m. at Scotiabank Pond. The Midget “AA” game will take place the following evening, Tuesday, February 6.

Players in the “AAA” division were selected via a team of evaluators who observed and evaluated teams and players throughout November and December. Midget “AA” and “A” players were nominated by coaches in their respective divisions. Coaches and trainers were selected based on League standings as of late December.

Rosters for the games include a total of 120 players from across all three Midget rep levels.

“Heading into the 17th year, we’re excited to be showcasing talent from three of our Midget divisions,” said GTHL Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer Scott Oakman. “The Midget All-Star Festival gives players a great opportunity to showcase their talent and for spectators to take in some great hockey.”

All 12 “AAA” teams will be represented at the event, while all nine teams from the “AA” division will have at least one player participating. The Midget “A” game will see the top 20 players from both the GTHL and Mississauga Hockey League (MHL) go head-to-head.

All games at the 2018 Midget All-Star Festival are free of charge.

The event schedule will be as follows:

Midget AAA Friday, February 2 – 7:30 p.m.
Midget A Monday, February 5 – 7:30 p.m.
Midget AA Tuesday, February 6 – 7:30 p.m.
