Team OHL Rosters Announced for 2010 SUBWAY® Super Series Team OHL Rosters Announced for 2010 SUBWAY® Super Series

Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League in association with the Ontario Hockey League and the London Knights and Sudbury Wolves hockey clubs today announced the rosters for Team OHL that will compete against Team Russia in the 2010 SUBWAY® Super Series.  

Following two games hosted in the QMJHL, the OHL leg of the six-game series begins in London on Thursday November 11 at the John Labatt Centre before moving north to the Sudbury Community Arena on Monday November 15.  The series then shifts west for two games hosted in the WHL.  

“The SUBWAY® Super Series provides these players with a tremendous opportunity to demonstrate that they can compete amongst the best players eligible for the 2011 IIHF World Junior Championship,” said Dave Cameron of the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors, who will serve as Head Coach of both Team OHL and Team Canada.  “The OHL has had a lot of success against the Russians in this event and I am confident that we have assembled another strong group of players in all positions that will make us competitive in these games, and with players who will make a strong push to represent the OHL on Team Canada in Buffalo this December.”

36 players in total were selected for Team OHL rosters including 2010 Team Canada members Calvin de Haan of the Oshawa Generals, and Ryan Ellis of the Windsor Spitfires who won silver last year at the IIHF World Junior Championship.  The rosters are also highlighted by three first round picks in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft including Erik Gudbranson of the Kingston Frontenacs, Joey Hishon of the Owen Sound Attack, and Mark Visentin of the Niagara IceDogs.  In addition to de Haan and Ellis, 2009 first round picks Peter Holland of the Guelph Storm and Zack Kassian of the Windsor Spitfires will compete in the series.  Scott Harrington of the London Knights is one of seven players competing that are eligible for the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.  He will represent the host Knights in London alongside forward Michael MacDonald, while Wolves’ forwards Marcus Foligno and John McFarland will represent the host team in Sudbury.  

The Team OHL rosters were assembled by a selection committee that includes Brampton Battalion General Manager and Head Coach Stan Butler, and London Knights’ General Manager Mark Hunter.  Both Butler and Hunter worked in conjunction with Hockey Canada Head Scout Kevin Prendergast.
 
All six games will be broadcast nationally on Rogers Sportsnet starting at 7 pm (ET) while RDS will broadcast the two contests in Saint John and Drummondville.  Associate sponsors for the event are Bank of Montreal and CCM.
