Always a great viewing of talent, the Wendy Dufton Memorial Tournament in London is one of the major stops in the minor midget AAA season and the 2019 event was no different
An equitable mix of talent across the board, the tournament was really anyone's to win. Some of the stronger teams from the GTHL and SCTA were not in attendance but the competition remained fierce.
In the end it came down to the hometown London Jr. Knight and the American Oakland Jr. Grizzlies in the championship. Throughout the duration of the tournament, the Jr. Knights seemed to play better and better as a team with every game. Strong efforts starting in net from goaltender Sheffield all the way up to the opposing end from sniper McConnell–Barker helped carve a path to the final. The Oakland Jr. Grizzlies bosted some of the top American–born talent in the age group such as power forward and top prospect Rutger McGroarty. In the end, the home team would fall short and the Jr. Grizzlies would win the 2019 Wendy Dufton Memorial campaign.
Director of Scouting Ryan Ferizovic was joined by area scouts Zack Thompson, Ethan Wong, and Matt Pepper to take in the action over the weekend and contributed to the following report which includes comments on over 60 players, honourable mentions, and our selections for the Top 10 performers of the tournament. Media Producer Zach Scribner was also in attendance taking pictures and conducting interviews with top prospects.

The USA Hockey Select 15 Development Camp has become an annual launch of the new OHL Priority Selection scouting season with scouts flocking to Amherst, New York for the first look at many of the top OHL-eligible players in the United States. Smack dab in the middle of the summer, it gives interested parties the chance to cool down and watch some elite hockey as many of the top 2004-born American players gather to showcase themselves.
As should be expected given its National select event status, the level of talent is always extremely high and that was certainly the case with this 2004 age group, leaving us very excited to track these prospects throughout the upcoming season.
Director of Scouting Andrew Sykes and GTHL scout Ryan Ferizovic took in the action and compiled the following report which includes our selections for the top performers of the camp ranked by position, as well as honourable mentions.
