Team NOHA will participate at the prestigious OHL Cup on March 13 to 18, 2019 in Toronto.

We followed our process and are confident that these young men will give us the best opportunity for success” said Seidel.
Team NOHA will also compete at the OHL Gold Cup in May, which is the first step in Hockey Canada’s Program of Excellence, the Program that concludes with the World Junior Hockey Championship.
“The next step in this journey begins as we focus on success at the OHL Cup and OHL Gold Cup to make Northern Ontario proud. I'm so excited to work with this entire group” continued Seidel.
