Over the holiday break, TheScout.ca covered the massive 60-team Toronto Marlboros Holiday Classic Tournament that saw the Don Mills Flyers take an exciting championship game over GTHL foe the Toronto Nationals. The incomparable Shane Wright scored the championship-winning goal for the Flyers who were pushed to the brink by the Nationals who came so close to pulling the upset despite missing a couple of top players. The Flyers and Nationals were joined by the Whitby Wildcats and a juggernaut team from Minnesota the Gentry Galaxy. Don Mills survived a classic matchup with Gentry in the semifinals to narrowly secure their place in the final.
The tournament, which for our staff acts as a launching pad to our Mid-Season Rankings, greatly helps to solidify our second instalment of rankings for the OHL Priority Selection.
Director of Scouting Andrew Sykes was joined by regional scouts Ryan Ferizovic and Jason Gray, as well as Zach Thompson who was making his debut with the team as a special contributor. Media Producer Zach Scribner was also in attendance taking pictures and conducting interviews.
