The U16 OHL Gold Cup is an annual event created to feature Ontario’s top Under-16 talent. This event not only showcases Ontario’s talent, but it is an evaluation and selection process for Team Canada. The top players from the U16 OHL Gold Cup will attend the Under-17 Team Canada National Camp where the Hockey Canada Staff will select 66 players from across the country to represent Canada at the World Under-17 Challenge held annually in December. With 8 teams and 160 players representing the ALLIANCE, GTHL, HEO, HNO, NOHA, and OMHA, the future of Canadian hockey is on display during the 2016 OHL Gold Cup.
ALLIANCE Hockey and the Ontario Hockey Federation are hosting the 2016 OHL Gold Cup in Kitchener, Ontario from May 4 - 8, 2016. The City of Kitchener has a rich history of hosting prestigious events, especially when it comes to hockey. The city is very well known regionally, provincially and nationally for organizing first class events. These events have been so successful because of the dedicated crew of organizers, volunteers and the local business community who give so generously.
