SUBSCRIBERS - 2016 Marlboros Holiday Classic Report (Top 40 Performers)

London Jr Knights - Marlboros Holiday Classic ChampsIt was a deep and talented field for the 2016 edition of the Toronto Marlboros Holiday Classic Tournament, an event that brings a lot of the top teams in Ontario to the Greater Toronto Area. Spending time over the Holiday season packed in cold areas with limited parking on site doesn’t sound like that ideal situation but for teenagers chasing their dreams of being drafted into the Ontario Hockey League, it’s a prime opportunity to showcase their gifts on a world-class stage.

In a tournament that started with 51 teams, there were a lot of contenders who could’ve took the prize. Cambridge, Guelph, Halton and Brampton were teams who found their top games after an up-and-down season in their league play to advance to the round of 16. Eventually, it was the consistent top teams such as the Whitby Wildcats, Toronto Marlboros, Mississauga Reps, Ajax-Pickering Raiders, Mississauga Rebels, Toronto Jr. Canadiens, Toronto Nationals and London Jr. Knights who would advance to the quarter-finals. After some heartbreaking games between some of the province’s top teams, London Jr. Knights would capture a 3-2 victory over the Mississauga Rebels to take home their first tournament championship of the season.

Congratulations to the London Jr. Knights!

The following is a list of the Top 40 Performers based solely on the games our team of scouts viewed at the 2016 Toronto Marlboros Holiday Classic Tournament. In addition, there are dozens of other notable performers (listed by teams) with candid scouting reports on their game play. Unfortunately, due to schedule conflicts and time restraints, not all teams were viewed and those that fall into that category are listed at the end of the report.

Attending scouts included Matt Stewart (SCTA), Matt Grainda (USA), Brett Dowell (GTHL) and Brendan Ross (Head Scout)
