Toronto, Ont. – The Ontario Hockey League today announced the Week 4 edition of the weekly U16 AAA rankings for the 2022 OHL Cup Showcase Tournament presented by Under Armour and hosted by the Greater Toronto Hockey League.
The rankings return for the first time since December 14 after Covid-19 measures were instituted across the province of Ontario, halting play across minor hockey associations. With play back underway this past week and the 2022 OHL Cup less than two months away, the countdown continues.
The 2022 OHL Cup powered by Under Armour is scheduled for March 30 to April 4 and features 20 teams consisting of talent eligible for the 2022 OHL Priority Selection. All games will be played at the Scotiabank Pond in Toronto until the Championship Final moves to the Mattamy Athletic Centre on Monday, April 4.
Note: Wild Card Play-In matchups are now scheduled to take place at the Scotiabank Pond on Tuesday, March 29 to determine the final entries to the 2022 OHL Cup.
The weekly rankings are determined by a panel of OHL Central Scouting staff and represent the top teams that are competing to play in the annual year-end championship tournament.
