OHL UNVEILS ROSTERS AND SCHEDULE FOR 2023 DEVELOPMENT COMBINE PRESENTED BY DAIRY FARMERS OF ONTARIO

Toronto, Ont. – The Ontario Hockey League today announced the rosters and schedule for the 2023 OHL Development Combine presented by Dairy Farmers of Ontario which takes place April 15-16 at the Tribute Communities Centre in Oshawa, Ont.

The event offers 76 players (36 forwards, 24 defencemen, 16 goaltenders) the opportunity to showcase themselves both on and off the ice to OHL member team personnel. Sport testing results will be distributed to every OHL member team General Manager to assist in their evaluation for the OHL Priority Selection to be held on April 21-22.

“The OHL Combine provides prospective players with a unique experience to enhance their own personal development,” said Brodie Barrick, OHL Director of Recruitment and Player Services. “The skills testing helps identify on and off-ice strengths to help players achieve their peak performance, while the games provide players another platform to showcase their talents in a new environment alongside their peers in advance of the Priority Selection.”

The weekend program includes on and off-ice testing performed by Okanagan Hockey Group in addition to skills training provided by Power Edge Pro. Over the weekend players will partake in a seminar that focuses on proper nutrition and training for elite athletes, as well as a “More Than Hockey” presentation conducted by OHL Director of Cultural Diversity and Inclusion Rico Phillips who will be joined by OHL and NHL alumnus Anthony Stewart of Hockey Equality. Players will also compete in a series of 5-on-5 and 3-on-3 games on Sunday joined behind the bench by OHL member team personnel.

Teams will be competing for the OHL Combine Cup Championship that awards points based on individual and team performances in both on and off-ice testing, as well as Sunday’s game results.

The 2023 event marks the 14th year the OHL has hosted a skills development day for players and goaltenders in advance of the OHL Priority Selection. The OHL Development Combine presented by Dairy Farmers of Ontario is open to the general public.
