Winners of this past weekend’s Waterloo Gold Puck Tournament, the Sudbury Minor Midget Wolves rise three spots to number six on the list while the tournament finalist Kitchener Jr. Rangers make their debut on the rankings at number 10.

Tournament Structure:

15 of the 20 spots in the 2019 OHL Cup powered by Under Armour are guaranteed through league competition.  The 15 guaranteed spots continue to include all four GTHL Semi-Finalists, and the top four teams that place at the OMHA Championship.  Three teams from the ALLIANCE will still be guaranteed a spot in the tournament including the Champion and Finalist, along with the winner of a best-of-three Semi-Final Wild Card Series to be played between the losers of the two league Semi-Finals.  Also as in past years, two tournament entries are reserved for United States competition, while both an HNO and NOHA representative will also compete.  This season there will not be a representative from HEO.


Wild Card Games:

The final five entries at the 2019 OHL Cup powered by Under Armour will be Wild Cards determined among 10 teams that will play a one game ‘win and in’ scenario.  The 10 competing teams aiming for the final five tournament spots will continue to include the fifth place team at the OMHA Championship, and the loser of the ALLIANCE Semi-Final Wild Card Series.  As introduced in 2016, two spots in Wild Card games will be reserved for GTHL teams.  The two competing GTHL teams will be determined through a pair of Wild Card Play-In Series matchups involving the four GTHL teams who qualified for the playoffs but lost in the first round.  As introduced in 2017, one spot in a Wild Card will also be reserved for the winner of an OMHA SCTA Consolation Game that features both teams who lost in the SCTA Tournament Semi-Final.  The OMHA teams eligible for this matchup will be determined annually based on the league not hosting the OMHA Championship.  Finally, the five remaining teams who will compete in the Wild Card matchups will be named by the Tournament Selection Committee.  The Committee will evaluate and review a team’s post-season success as the first criteria for selection, with additional criteria to include regular season play and tournament play.  All five Wild Card games will take place on Tuesday March 12 with specific matchups and times of play to be determined by random draw among the eight competing teams in advance of the event.

Chekhovich becomes the league’s first two-time award recipient this season after producing a trio of multi-point performances to help the Drakkar climb back into a second place tie in the QMJHL’s overall standings.  On Tuesday night he scored twice with an assist and earned third star honours as part of an 8-3 win over the visiting Chicoutimi Sagueneens.  Chekhovich would finish the week with back-to-back first star performances in Friday and Saturday home wins over the Victoriaville Tigres.  His output in those contests included four points sparked by his fourth hat-trick of the season in a 7-1 victory, and two points including his league-leading 29th goal of the season.  The Drakkar now carry an overall record of 22-8-1-1 which puts them even with the Moncton Wildcats behind only the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies.

A 19-year-old from Yekaterinburg, Russia, Chekhovich is playing in his third QMJHL season with the Drakkar after being chosen third overall in the 2016 CHL Import Draft.  He’s currently tied for second in QMJHL scoring with 54 points in 32 games which is just six points shy of his career-high in 65 games last season.  The seventh round pick of the Sharks in the 2017 NHL Draft is one of three CHL players named to Russia’s Selection Camp roster for the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Also considered for the award this week was Brett Neumann of the Kingston Frontenacs who scored six goals and two assists for eight points in three games, and Vancouver Canucks prospect Jett Woo of the Moose Jaw Warriors with one goal and six assists for seven points in three games.

Neumann produced back-to-back hat-trick performances over the weekend helping the Frontenacs win back-to-back games for the first time this season.  After a tough 8-1 loss on Friday night to the London Knights, Neumann powered the Frontenacs to a 7-5 win on Saturday afternoon in Sarnia with his three goals, including one by penalty shot, contributing to his third five-point effort of the season and first star honours against the Sting.  The Frontenacs’ Western Conference road trip wrapped up Sunday afternoon in Kitchener with Neumann again leading the offensive charge by scoring the game-winner, insurance marker, and empty-netter earning first star recognition in the 4-1 triumph over the Rangers.

A 19-year-old from Toronto, Ont., Neumann has already made 2018-19 the best season of his four-year OHL tenure.  His 24 goals and 44 points put him eighth overall in league scoring and are both career-highs in just 32 games played following last season’s totals of 18 goals and 42 points across 68 games.  Neumann was originally chosen by the Erie Otters in the third round of the 2015 OHL Priority Selection and joined the Frontenacs via trade in January, 2017.

IIHF WORLD JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP RETURNS TO ALBERTA

Press Release

Hockey Canada awards 2021 World Juniors to Edmonton and Red Deer

EDMONTON, Alta. – The world’s best junior hockey players will be skating for gold on Alberta ice at the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Hockey Canada, in partnership with the Canadian Hockey League (CHL), has awarded the 45th edition of the international tournament to the cities of Edmonton and Red Deer.

Hockey Canada“To return to Alberta is an incredible opportunity for Hockey Canada and the IIHF World Junior Championship,” said Scott Smith, president and chief operating officer of Hockey Canada. “The province of Alberta and the cities of Edmonton and Red Deer have a history of hosting successful, world-class events, including the 1995 IIHF World Junior Championship in Red Deer, the 2012 edition of the tournament in Edmonton and the 2018 Hlinka Gretzky Cup last summer. We are confident in this committee’s ability to successfully execute on its vision for the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship, and we look forward to working with them to ensure we leave a lasting legacy in Alberta and across the country that helps us continue to grow and foster the game from the grassroots to elite levels.”

Smith was chair of the site-selection committee, which also included Hockey Canada CEO Tom Renney, former Hockey Canada board chair Joe Drago and CHL president David Branch, and was supported by Dean McIntosh, vice-president of events and properties for Hockey Canada as the committee’s resource staff.

Hockey Canada has played host to the IIHF World Junior Championship 12 times in tournament history; the 13th IIHF World Junior Championship on Canadian ice officially kicks off this month in Vancouver and Victoria. Organizers of the 2021 tournament will take part in the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship as part of the preparation and planning for Edmonton and Red Deer.

Leading the committee are Oilers Entertainment Group (OEG) in partnership with the City of Edmonton, and the Red Deer Rebels Hockey Club in partnership with the City of Red Deer.

“Oilers Entertainment Group is thrilled to be able to continue our partnership with Hockey Canada, this time to help bring the IIHF World Junior Championship to Edmonton and Red Deer,” said Bob Nicholson, OEG CEO & vice chair. “We are continuing to build Edmonton’s international reputation as a destination for hockey and we know the hockey fans in our community will be excited to cheer on Team Canada on home ice.”

“On behalf of the Rebels organization, the City of Red Deer, our partners at Westerner Park and all junior hockey fans across Central Alberta, we are beyond excited to bring the IIHF World Junior Championship back to our community,” said Brent Sutter, owner, general manager and head coach of the Red Deer Rebels. “This marquee event was a game-changer for the region in 1995, and we’re sure fans from around the world will be embraced once again.”

“As a site-selection committee, finding the optimal site for the IIHF World Junior Championship is always our priority,” said Branch. As a partner, the CHL is instrumental in the hosting of the IIHF World Junior Championship on Canadian ice, sharing in the event legacy for the development of high-performance junior hockey across the country, and lending its players, coaches and support staff to participating teams. “The interest and excitement to host this special event remains high as we look to 2021 and beyond. Today is about celebrating the selection of Edmonton and Red Deer as co-hosts in 2021 and the teams, volunteers, staff and fans who will make the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship in Vancouver and Victoria an unforgettable experience beginning later this month.”

The Government of Alberta has committed its support to the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship.

“Alberta’s towns and cities are rich with hockey culture and our government is proud to support the 2021 World Juniors,” said the Honourable Ricardo Miranda, minister of culture and tourism for the Government of Alberta. “These championships will bring top-notch athletes and tourists from around the world to explore our beautiful province. This is an incredible opportunity for Alberta and I know co-hosting the games in Edmonton and Red Deer will be a winning combination.”

The 2021 World Juniors will be co-hosted at Rogers Place, the home of the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers and Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League (WHL), and at the ENMAX Centrium, home of the WHL’s Red Deer Rebels with regional economic impact expected to exceed $50-million.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Red Deer again after a great Hlinka Gretzky Cup this summer,” said Mayor Don Iveson. “We’re looking forward to showcasing our outstanding hosting skills as well as Edmonton’s Rogers Place and Ice District to the world. Events like this have a significant local economic impact that will benefit Edmontonians and allow them to enjoy their ongoing love for hockey.”

“World Juniors is more than a hockey tournament. It is our national tradition. Red Deer is honoured to be a partner host City for the 2020/2021 World Juniors, especially given our strong community history of hosting Juniors in 1995”, said Red Deer Mayor Tara Veer. “We will build on this proud heritage with our government and hockey partners. Hockey Canada, the Oilers Entertainment Group and the Red Deer Rebels are to be applauded for the hockey and Canadian history we are writing today, and for the opportunity they have secured for us”.

Tickets for the 2021 IIHF World Junior Championship will be available to Edmonton Oilers, Oil Kings and Rebels season-seat holders in the spring. Tickets will go on sale to the public at a later date. To be sure they don’t miss out, fans can get front-of-the-line access when tickets go on sale to the public by registering HERE.

A legacy plan for potential profits from the event will provide for grassroots hockey program support across the province and throughout Hockey Canada’s 13 regional members, as well as the CHL. A portion of the profits are used by the IIHF to grow the game internationally.

Edmonton to host Hockey Canada Foundation gala

The City of Edmonton was also confirmed as host city for the 2019 Hockey Canada Foundation Gala & Golf event by Foundation chair Doug Goss and event co-chairs Ashif and Zainul Mawji on Thursday.

The annual event is Hockey Canada’s single largest fundraiser, supporting the growth of the game from coast to coast to coast. The event, which leaves 50 percent of its net proceeds within the host community and surrounding region to help grow the game, has raised approximately $4 million since 2009, including a $400,000 legacy from the 2018 HCF Gala & Golf in London, Ont., last June.

That legacy will be used to assist Hockey Canada programs that introduce children of all backgrounds and circumstances the opportunity to experience hockey. The fund will provide financial assistance to families demonstrating need whose children’s passion for the game was fueled through the Canadian Tire First Shift and Try Hockey programs so they can pursue the game with their local minor hockey association.

A 19-year-old from Espoo, Finland, Luukkonen was chosen third overall by the Wolves in the 2018 CHL Import Draft becoming the first goaltender selected in the process since 2013.  So far this season he carries a 15-5-1-1 record with a goals-against-average of 2.50 and save percentage of .922 which are both among the league’s leaders.  Luukkonen was a second round pick by the Sabres in the 2017 NHL Draft and was recently invited to Finland’s Selection Camp for the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship.

Also considered for the award this week was QMJHL rookie William Grimard of the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles who also went 2-0-0-0 winning one game by shutout while stopping a total of 34 shots for a goals-against-average of 1.00 and save percentage of .944.  In the WHL, Vegas Golden Knights prospect Jiri Patera of the Brandon Wheat Kings posted a 2-0-0-0 record stopping 62 total shots for a goals-against-average of 1.50 and save percentage of .954.

Toronto, ON – The Ontario Hockey League today announced the Top OHL Performers of the Month for regular season games played in November 2018, including Niagara IceDogs forward Jason Robertson, Ottawa 67’s defenceman Noel Hoefenmayer, 67’s rookie Marco Rossi and London Knights goaltender Joseph Raaymakers.

OHL Player of the Month – Jason Robertson (Niagara IceDogs):
Niagara IceDogs forward Jason Robertson is the OHL Player of the Month for November after leading all players with 30 points including 12 goals and 18 assists along with a plus/minus rating of plus-9 over 12 games. The Dallas Stars prospect split the month between the Kingston Frontenacs and Niagara IceDogs, recording points in all 12 of his November contests. He registered a pair of hat-tricks while recording four points on four different occasions, being named first star of the game four times, second star twice and third star once. Robertson’s first hat-trick came on Nov. 7th in a four-point showing with Kingston as they fell 6-4 to the Ottawa 67’s. He scored another hat-trick and four points on Nov. 11th, defeating the Oshawa Generals 5-1. Robertson picked up four assists in his final game as a Frontenac on Nov. 18th, defeating the Hamilton Bulldogs 5-3. He wrapped up the month of November with back-to-back four-point efforts with the IceDogs, recording a goal and three assists in wins on Nov. 29th and Nov. 30th. In his four November games with Niagara, Robertson had three goals, nine assists and 12 points.

A 19-year-old native of Northville, Mich., Robertson sits second in OHL scoring with 52 points including 27 goals and 25 assists over 29 games this season. His 10 power play goals and 22 power play points also lead the league while his 152 shots on goal are second-most. After four years in Kingston, Robertson finished with 124 career goals, the fourth-most by any player to wear a Frontenacs uniform.

OHL Defenceman of the Month – Noel Hoefenmayer (Ottawa 67’s):
Ottawa 67’s blueliner Noel Hoefenmayer is the OHL Defenceman of the Month for November. The Arizona Coyotes prospect recorded 16 points including three goals and 13 assists along with a plus/minus rating of plus-9 over 12 November contests. Hoefenmayer had five different multi-point performances headlined by a four-point showing against the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds on Nov. 16th. Hoefenmayer had two goals and two assists in that game, including one that served as the OHL’s representative in the weekly CIBC Showdown. He finished the month with points in three straight games, wrapping things up with a goal and two assists in a 6-2 win over Kingston on Nov. 28th.

A 19-year-old from North York, Ont., Hoefenmayer has 25 points including five goals and 20 assists along with a plus/minus rating of plus-14 over 29 games this season. The 6-foot-1, 204Ib. defender is currently in his fourth OHL season and picked up his 100th career point this past month. He was Arizona’s fourth round pick in 2017 and was originally a second round pick of the 67’s in the 2015 OHL Priority Selection from the Don Mills Flyers Minor Midgets.

OHL Rookie of the Month – Marco Rossi (Ottawa 67’s):
For the second straight month, Ottawa 67’s forward Marco Rossi is the OHL Rookie of the Month. The first-year centreman had nine points including four goals and five assists over seven games before suffering an elbow injury on Nov. 15th that will sideline him into the new year. Rossi had points in five of his seven outings, stringing together a five game point streak. He had a goal and an assist in an 8-2 road win over the Saginaw Spirit on Nov. 4th, a goal and two helpers in a 6-4 victory over the Kingston Frontenacs on Nov. 7th and a pair of goals in a 4-3 loss to the Oshawa Generals on Nov. 9th to headline the month’s action.

A 17-year-old, 2020 NHL Draft eligible native of Feldkirch, Austria, Rossi continues to lead OHL rookies in scoring with 13 goals, 14 assists and 27 points despite missing the past two weeks to injury. His plus-23 rating is among the best in the league while he’s also won 55.4% of his faceoffs this season. The 5-foot-9, 174Ib. centre was the 18th overall pick of the 2018 CHL Import Draft.

IceDogs’ Jason Robertson named OHL ‘On the Run’ Player of the Week

Toronto, ON – The Ontario Hockey League today announced that Dallas Stars prospect Jason Robertson of the Niagara IceDogs is the OHL ‘On the Run’ Player of the Week for the regular season week ending December 2 after leading the league with 10 points in three games including three goals and seven assists with a plus-minus rating of plus-7.

Robertson produced a trio of multi-point performances for the IceDogs across three victories last week extending his personal point-streak to 13 which is tied for the league-high so far this season.  On Thursday night he scored his league-leading 10th power play goal of the season and added three assists as second star of a 6-1 win against the Owen Sound Attack, then contributed another four-point effort on Friday night with a goal and three assists as first star of a 7-2 road win over the Kitchener Rangers.  His week wrapped up with a goal and an assist on Sunday collecting third star honours in a 5-1 road win against the Hamilton Bulldogs.  The three-game winning-streak has helped the IceDogs keep pace in the Central Division standings where they remain tied for first place with the Sudbury Wolves holding a 16-7-4-0 record.

This marks the second weekly award of the season for the 19-year-old from Northville, Michigan, who was previously recognized in early November as a member of the Kingston Frontenacs.  It’s also the third time a member of the IceDogs has been honoured this season following forward Akil Thomas and goaltender Stephen Dhillon.  In five games since joining the IceDogs, Robertson has scored four goals and 10 assists bringing his season totals to 27 goals and 25 assists for 52 points in 29 games which ranks second overall among league leaders.  During his four-year OHL tenure, which began as a fourth round pick by Kingston in the 2015 Priority Selection, he’s amassed 128 goals and 124 assists for 252 points in 219 games.  Robertson was chosen by the Stars in the second round of the 2017 NHL Draft.

Watch video highlights of Robertson and the IceDogs against the Attack, Rangers, and Bulldogs.

Also considered for the award this week were a pair of Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds including Morgan Frost and Keeghan Howdeshell.  Frost, who won the award last week, scored three goals and six assists for nine points in three games to hold onto the league’s scoring lead, while Howdeshell scored seven goals and one assist for eight points in three games powered by back-to-back hat-tricks during the club’s Michigan road trip.  In goal, Buffalo Sabres prospect Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen of the Sudbury Wolves stopped 48 of the 50 shots he faced in two victories including one by shutout for an overall goals-against-average of 1.00 and save percentage of .960.

OHL’s Draft Eligible Statistical Leaders as of November

It was supposed to be a two-horse race between Ryan Suzuki of the Barrie Colts and Arthur Kaliyev of the Hamilton Bulldogs, two OHL’ers expected to go in the first round of the 2019 National Hockey League Draft in June from Vancouver, British Columbia.

It’s still early, just passing the one-third mark of the season, so there is still a lot of hockey remaining to be played, but Kaliyev has put a little distance between himself and Suzuki – for the moment. But the gap between the points leader – Kaliyev (40 points in 26 games) and Suzuki (32 points in 24 games) is greater then the gap between Suzuki and third place Cole MacKay of the Sault Ste Marie Greyhounds (27 points in 27 games).

It’s also no surprise that Kaliyev, the best pure scorer in the draft class, leads in goals with 21. What may surprise some people is that Connor McMichael of the London Knights is just 4 behind the goal scoring leader. There’s a drop off to the third-place skater, Philip Tomasino of the Niagara IceDogs with 11 goals.

Among defencemen, Thomas Harley of the Mississauga Steelheads and Billy Constantinou of the Kingston Frontenacs continue to be offensive sparkplugs. Harley leads defender with 22 points in 27 games while Constantinou comes in second with 19 points in 26 games. They are trailed by four defencemen with 12 points.

In the crease, Hunter Jones of the Peterborough Petes leads netminders in goals-against-average, save percentage, games played, minutes played, wins and tied with Mack Guzda of the Owen Sound Attack in shutouts.

Here are the statistical leaders in a variety of categories. Always refer to the OHL website for official stats.
