OHL Gold Cup: Team-By-Team Preview


From May 3-6, OHL teams will get a look at their recent draft picks for the first time since they selected them at the 2018 OHL Priority Selection. Six minor hockey leagues across Ontario will send their all-star teams to compete in a eight-team tournament which acts as a showcase for OHL teams and their newest prospects.

The following is a team-by-team preview of the players that each OHL team has competing this week in Kitchener. Five team previews will be added each day leading up to the opening day of the tournament on Thursday.

North Bay Battalion (8)

GTHL Blue – Kyle Jackson, F – 3rd round, 49th overall
GTHL Red – Cameron Peters, F – 2nd round, 29th overall
GTHL Red – Joe Vrbetic, G – 2nd round, 31st overall
NOHA – Pacey Schlueting, D – 1st round, 9th overall
NOHA – David Campbell, F – 4th round, 69th overall
NOHA – Jesse Kirkby, F – 9th round, 169th overall
NOHA – Reece Proulx, G – 11th round, 209th overall
NOHA – Jack Stockfish, F – 15th round, 285th overall

**The Battalion had a lot of local flavour in their draft and it reflects here with five of their picks playing for Team NOHA. 1st-round pick Pacey Schlueting headlines a good crop of Northern Ontario prospects. Watch for goaltender Reece Proulx to pile up saves just like he did at the OHL Cup in March.**

Oshawa Generals (7)

Dylan Robinson

Alliance – Ryan Gagnier, F – 3rd round, 50th overall
Alliance – Matthew Sbrocca, G – 7th round, 131st overall
GTHL Blue – Tyler Tullio, F – 1st round, 11th overall
GTHL Blue – Dylan Robinson, F – 2nd round, 28th overall
GTHL Blue – David Gucciardi, D – 3rd round, 54th overall
NOHA – Hunter Brazier, F – 9th round, 171st overall
OMHA White – Dawson McKinney, F – 4th round, 64th overall

**A little bit of everything for the Generals to watch here from the backend out. It was puzzling how OHL Cup MVP Dylan Robinson (pictured) fell to the 2nd-round as he was a legitimate Top 10 prospect in the age group in our opinion. All seven of these players have a good chance to play in the OHL down the road which reflects a strong draft for the Gens.**


Ottawa 67’s (9)


Alliance – Matthew Maggio, F – 5th round, 86th overall
GTHL Blue – Marco Costantini, G – 6th round, 106th overall
HEO – Yanic Crete, F – 3rd round, 51st overall
HEO – Liam Cavan, D – 11th round, 206th overall
HNO – Colby Ambrosio, 4th round, 66th overall
OMHA Black – Will Cranley, G – 2nd round, 35th overall
OMHA Black – Alex Belanger, D – 3rd round, 44th overall
OMHA Black – Owen Luik, D – 9th round, 166th overall
OMHA White – Cameron Tolnai, F – 1st round, 6th overall

**The 67’s staff will be busy watching nine prospects between six different teams at this year’s OHL Gold Cup, several of whom will play prominent roles. 1st-round pick Cameron Tolnai (pictured), along with fellow forwards Yanic Crete, Colby Ambrosio and Matt Maggio should all be impact players for their respective teams, while goaltenders Will Cranley and Marco Costantini could be game-stealers between the pipes.**

Owen Sound Attack (5)

Alliance – Nathan Small, D – 7th round, 129th overall
HEO – Nolan Seed, D – 1st round, 15th overall
HEO – Josh Barnes, F – 2nd round, 24th overall
OMHA Black – Brody Waters, F – 4th round, 61st overall
OMHA White – Marco Latassa, G – 9th round, 175th overall

**1st-round pick Nolan Seed and 2nd-round selection Josh Barnes will have the Owen Sound brass and fans focused on Team HEO. For us, Barnes was a slam-dunk first-round talent and his lethal stick-handling and shooting attributes should be on full display here surrounded by more talented players.**

Peterborough Petes (9)


Alliance – Sheldon Serraglio, D – 8th round, 150th overall
GTHL Blue – William Cuylle, F – 1st round, 3rd overall
GTHL Red – Shawn Spearing, D – 4th round, 75th overall
GTHL Red – Matthew Perciballi, F – 5th round, 83rd overall
HEO – Tye Austin, G – 3rd round, 43rd overall
OMHA Black – Cameron Butler, F – 2nd round, 27th overall
OMHA Black – Jack Bar, D – 3rd round, 52nd overall
OMHA Black – Luc Reeve, F – 8th round, 143rd overall
OMHA White – Jackson Kirk, F – 7th round, 123rd overall

**Like the 67’s, the Petes management team will be busy. You can bet they will work on 3rd overall pick Will Cuylle (pictured) who has said he will not report to the team. After Cuylle, the Petes had themselves a very strong draft, making quality selections at all three positions. Tye Austin, Matthew Perciballi, Shawn Spearing, Jack Bar, Jackson Kirk and Luc Reeve were all big-time value picks. Even 2nd-round selection Cameron Butler could be considered a value pick as many thought he could have been a first-rounder.**
