The event is a preview of the top picks in next spring’s Ontario Hockey League and, in a few short years, the National Hockey League draft. The OMHA is a premier development league with 76 players drafted from 22 different teams at the 2015 Ontario Hockey League Priority Selection, including three first round picks. Recent Ontario Minor Hockey Association grads now in the National Hockey League include Steven Stamkos, Matt Duchene, Corey Perry and Cody Hodgson.
Comprising 1/3 of ‘the big three’ for Central Ontario (along with Dellandrea, and Yule), Leeking is the heart-and-soul of his team. The massive, 6’3” 185lbs. centre, has good skills, a high-level of hockey sense, a fabulous work ethic and adds a lot of sandpaper to his game. He is one of those player that the more you see him play, the more you will like him.
Dubbed by one ETA Minor Midget coach as ‘the most dangerous player with the puck in the ETA, Dellandrea may sometimes go unnoticed but by the end of the game he will be most definitely noticed on the scoresheet. The smallest of the big-three at 5’11” and 172lbs., he is not overly flashy, instead he relies on his hockey IQ and probably the best snap-shot in the ETA.
At 6’5” and 185lbs. he is a man amongst boys and one of the most physically dominant players within his peer group. In addition he generates offence and has a very strong work ethic. A great combination of skill and brawn, he is currently in the top 25 in league scoring and top 5 in penalty minutes.
