2018 OHL Cup Powered by Under Armour Wild Card Play-In Schedule:

Tuesday March 13, 2018
WC 1 – 10:00 am –  Cambridge Hawks or Sun County Panthers vs Toronto Titans
WC 2 – 12:00 pm – Detroit Little Caesars vs Don Mills Flyers

All five matchups were randomly drawn on Tuesday March 6 among the 10 eligible teams.

The GTHL’s Mississauga Senators and Mississauga Rebels secured their positions in Wild Card Play-In Games by winning their Wild Card Series matchups over the Don Mills Flyers and Toronto Titans respectively.  The OMHA’s Quinte Red Devils were awarded a Wild Card Play-In Game position by virtue of finishing fifth place in the league’s championship tournament.  The Grey Bruce Highlanders qualified after winning an SCTA Consolation matchup over the Brampton 45’s.  The ALLIANCE’s Wild Card Play-In Game representation is still to be confirmed but will be either the Cambridge Hawks or the Sun County Panthers who are in the midst of their Semi-Final Wild Card Series.  The winner of their six-point series will gain automatic tournament entry, while the loser will compete in the designated Wild Card Play-In Game.  The remaining five teams including Detroit Little Caesars, Don Mills Flyers, Niagara North Stars, Peterborough Jr Petes, and Toronto Titans were chosen by the Tournament Selection Committee for Wild Card Play-In Games based on performance throughout the 2017-18 season.

The five winners of the Wild Card Play-In Games will join 15 other clubs who earned their qualification through league play and regional representation.
