2019 OHL Cup Report

2018 Dale Parker Memorial Tournament Report presents our 2019 OHL Cup Report. It includes comments on 120 players and our selections for the Top 20 Performers in the tournament.

Top 20 Performers

1. Shane Wright, C, Don Mills Flyers

What is there left to say about the underage phenom? He is the most complete player in the age group and does everything right. Offensively he did a great job setting up teammates and finding the back of the net. He carried the puck extremely well in all zones of the ice and remained at ease through traffic and pressure. Defensively he did a great job back–checking and tying up an opponent. He supported his defencemen well down low and ensured the puck was secured for his team as they commenced the breakout. He would get the overtime game–winning assist on Othmann’s goal.

2. Brennan Othmann, LW, Don Mills Flyers

Othmann once again displayed how formidable of an offensive player he is in this tournament. His dynamic shooting keeps literally everyone on the ice wondering what he’s going to do, and it makes his fantastic vision and passing ability that much more effective. Regardless of the shot type, strength, and position, he finds the back of the net the majority of the time. He would go on to register the overtime game–winning goal in the championship game.

3. Francesco Pinelli, C, Toronto Red Wings

Pinelli showed why he deserves to be a top ten pick in this year’s OHL draft. He has a great wrist shot and snap shot that he uses regularly to tally goals for his team. He is an excellent skater with great top speed, unbelievable acceleration, and elite edgework. He is very disciplined and never gets caught missing an assignment. Pinelli is everything you want in a front-line center.

4. Wyatt Johnston, C, Toronto Marlboros

Johnston is a skilled offensive dynamo who can beat you in a number of ways. A strong skater who understands the use of various routes, he elects to emphasize efficiency and applies himself accordingly. With a quick step and unlimited skill, he can make defenders look incapable and it allowed him to score a number of goals, a few of which generated some conversation amongst viewers.

5. Brandt Clarke, D, Don Mills Flyers

The most ‘200–foot’ defenceman in the age group, Brandt Clarke once again impressed everyone with his assertiveness in the defensive zone and his offensive prowess. He carries the puck well and tight to his body before making a hard pass or take a booming shot on goal. His physical play is excellent and keeps opponents looking over their shoulders. He plays tough in all zones of the ice and does whatever it takes to win.
