The Under-16 OHL Gold Cup is an annual event featuring the top players in Ontario. The tournament allows players to showcase their talent and serves as an evaluation in the selection process for Team Ontario.

The top 68 players from the Under-16 OHL Gold Cup will attend the Under-17 Team Ontario camp, from which 22 players will be chosen to represent the province at the World Under-17 Challenge in December.

This event truly represents some of the most promising talent in Canadian hockey as eight teams comprised of 160 players from the Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL, two teams), Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA, two teams), Minor Hockey Alliance of Ontario (ALLIANCE, one team), Ottawa District Minor Hockey Association (ODMHA, one team), Hockey Northwestern Ontario (HNO, one team) and the Northern Ontario Hockey Association (NOHA, one team) will compete in the five-day event.

The GTHL will send two teams of 20 players to the 2014 Gold Cup. Players must have a 1998 birth year and a GTHL registration card to be eligible for the event. The 40 players will be selected by Under-17 evaluators with input from Ontario Hockey League Central Scouting. Selection is determined by on and off-ice performance, not by a player’s draft position.

The 2014 Under-16 OHL Gold Cup will take place from May 7 to 11 in Kitchener, Ontario. The 40 players selected to represent the GTHL at the Gold Cup will be announced in late March. More information will be provided as it becomes available.

This restructured Hockey Canada Program of Excellence is a transition from the regional Under-17 camps previously hosted by HNO, ODHA, and OHF member partners.
