The time has finally come. All the work over the past six months has led us to this date. An exciting date for some players as they will hear their names called and find out where the next step in their hockey career.
As always, this is not he be all and end all of your hockey career should your name be passed over today. I’ll always point towards someone like Mike Hoffman, who didn’t hear his name called in a draft until the Ottawa Senators called upon him in 2009. Don’t take today as the end of a career but rather another step in the journey.
As for today, we will have you completely covered from top to bottom with all the Alliance players selected. In 2017, the Alliance had a record 46 players selected with 10 players going in the first three rounds. It will also be interesting to see how many players from the Alliance Scout Top 25 rankings are taken as 24/25 were selected in 2017.
Stay tuned here all day for continuously updated coverage. It all gets underway at 9:00am.
Minor Midget Result: Lost in semi-finals to London in 4 games (Advanced to OHL Cup)
Major Bantam Record: 21-7-4 (1st Place)
Major Bantam Result: Won Alliance Championship over London in 4 games
Following a season where Cambridge had their minor midgets return to the OHL Cup and their major bantams go undefeated in postseason play, the Hawks have their sights set on an Alliance Championship.
After some disappointing seasons at minor midget, it was a great breathe of fresh air when the 2001 born Hawks were able to compete with the best in the league and advance to the OHL Cup. It had been a long time since Cambridge had such a combination of elite scoring, shutdown defense and clutch goaltending. While we waited a long time for the Hawks to ice a competitive squad, the 2002 team looks to be even better.
