TORONTO JR. CANADIENS CROWNED CHAMPIONS OF 2023 U14 OHL CUP PRESENTED BY DAIRY FARMERS OF ONTARIO

Oakville, Ont. – The Toronto Jr. Canadiens have twin OHL Cup titles in 2023. After the U16 squad hoisted the OHL Cup on Apr. 3rd at the Mattamy Athletic Centre, the U14 Jr. Canadiens bested the Barrie Jr. Colts on Sunday at Joshua’s Creek Arena, being crowned champions of the 2nd annual event presented by Dairy Farmers of Ontario and hosted by the Ontario Minor Hockey Association.

The Jr. Canadiens climbed out to a 2-0 lead before Barrie battled back to tie things at two. Lucas Quain scored the deciding goal on the power play with 5:40 to go in the middle frame, giving the Jr. Canadiens enough to be crowned champions in 2023.

“All the hard work paid off and it feels great,” said Quain after the final buzzer. “We’ve worked hard since training camp and I’m glad to see this group improve as the season went on.”

“At the beginning of the year we all set goals,” said Jr. Canadiens head coach Matt Viola. “Every kid on the team wrote it down on a piece of paper. I am happy for all these boys to have accomplished something they’ll remember forever.”

Noah Laus and Connor Adam also scored for the Jr. Canadiens while Keaton Ardagh picked up two assists, including one on Quain’s game-winner.

For Barrie’s part, the Jr. Colts had goals from Kaden Rolling and Benjamin Marling, who finished as the top-scoring defenceman in the showcase with eight points (6-2–8) in five games.

Goaltenders received Player of the Game honours for their respective teams as Jr. Canadiens netminder Ethan Maniaci and Barrie’s Malcolm Rose were both excellent in the Championship Final.

Jr. Canadiens teammates Jax Pereira (6-4–10) and Keaton Ardagh (2-6–8) finished atop the tournament scoring list.

“We always talk about ups and downs, peaks and valleys during the year and you know, this tournament is a prime example of that,” Viola added. “Right now, I’m just super happy the boys came together at the right time, and now we get the hoist the trophy.”

The Jr. Canadiens started the showcase with a 5-0 blanking of the OMHA champion Halton Hurricanes on Friday morning before defeating the NOHA’s North Bay Trappers 5-1 on Friday afternoon. JRC skated to a 4-3 double-overtime win over the Sun County Panthers in Saturday’s Quarterfinal as Jax Pereira emerged as the hero to push his team into the semis. The Jr. Canadiens, who came into the showcase as the GTHL’s third entry, defeated the GTHL champion Don Mills Flyers 5-3 on Sunday morning to advance to the Championship Final.

The U14 OHL Cup trophy was presented to the Jr. Canadiens by OHL Director of Recruitment and Player Services Brodie Barrick alongside the OMHA’s Director of Business Development and Marketing Derek Polowyk.

TORONTO JR. CANADIENS ARE 2023 OHL CUP CHAMPIONS

Toronto, Ont. – In front of a big Monday night crowd at the Mattamy Athletic Centre, the Toronto Jr. Canadiens capped-off a perfect 2023 OHL Cup Showcase, defeating the Vaughan Kings 3-0 to be crowned OHL Cup champions for a third time.

With three points in the game, Luka Graziano (4) opened the scoring for the Jr. Canadiens at 6:10 of the first period with a shot from the point on the power play.

“We’ve had a very good power play,” said Graziano. “I was in the right spot at the right time, did what I was meant to do, and I’m happy it went in.”

At 2:58 of the second period, captain Jake O’Brien (7) would extend the Jr. Canadiens lead with a shot from the right circle. A top prospect for the 2023 OHL Priority Selection, O’Brien received the Tim Adams Memorial Trophy as OHL Cup MVP, setting a new Jr. Canadiens OHL Cup scoring record with 17 points.

“Our team came to play today. This is the biggest tournament of the year and we knew what we had to do to pull this one off. I’m proud of this team and happy we could pull out the win,” said O’Brien, speaking about his multi-point performance.

Evan Malkhassian (2) picked up his second point of the contest potting home the empty-netter at with a minute and a half to go in the game.

Making some big saves down the stretch including a big stop against a Vaughan two-on-one, Jr. Canadiens goaltender Alex Armellin stopped all 21 shots he faced in the game as he picked up his second shutout. Twin brothers Alex and Nico Armellin combined to surrender just three goals in the tournament, helping the Jr. Canadiens establish a new OHL Cup record.

Armellin praised his defence as he discussed his shutout in the biggest game of the year saying, “My defence made it pretty easy for me, I didn’t really get tested too much, and all tournament our forwards and defence were great in the defensive zone. It’s just unbelievable to get the win.

The loss ends a cinderella run to the final for Vaughan as they became the first team in OHL Cup history to reach the big dance following an 0-2 start to the showcase. They defeated the Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs 4-0 to enter the showcase as a wild card team. Forward Carter Kostuch was named to the OHL Cup Gatorade All-Star Team, leading Vaughan in scoring with 11 points.

The Toronto Jr. Canadiens played to a perfect 7-0-0 record, outscoring their opponents 32-3. JRC defeated Vaughan in the Round Robin, as well as the the Thunder Bay Kings, York-Simcoe Express, and the Sun County Panthers to finish as the top seed heading into the Quarterfinals.

The Jr. Canadiens would follow a successful Round Robin up with dominant victories over the London Jr. Knights and Waterloo Wolves to advance to the Championship Final, capturing the third OHL Cup title in their history.
