GTHL Rosters Announced for 2018 OHL Gold Cup

The OHL Gold Cup Steering Committee has announced the rosters for the eight teams competing in the 2018 OHL Gold Cup, including the two GTHL teams.

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 the 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.

GTHL teams will be looking to win their fourth consecutive OHL Gold Cup title during the 2018 campaign.
