OHL DRAFT COMBINE
Three local hockey players were among the 36 forwards, 24 defencemen and 16 goaltenders invited to last weekend’s OHL Draft Combine.
Goalie Benjamin Bonisteel and forward Blake Hall of the Southern Tier Admirals and forward Parker Hendsbee of the Niagara North Stars received invitations to the event.
“The OHL Combine offers prospective players with a unique experience to enhance their own personal development,” said Joe Birch, OHL Senior Director of Player Development and Special Events. “The skills testing helps identify off and on-ice strengths to help players achieve their peak performance, while the games provide players another platform to showcase their talents in a new environment alongside their peers in advance of the Priority Selection.”
Hendsbee and Hall were on Team Ekblad which won the team event at the combine. The winning team was the one which accumulated the most points based on overall testing results combined with Sunday’s in-game play.
CEBL UNVEILS TROPHY
The Canadian Elite Basketball League recently unveiled its championship trophy that six teams will be fighting for starting May 9.
The CEBL championship trophy was made by Protocole-Trophies of Exception in Montreal, a famed trophy design firm.
“My inspiration was to emphasize the very moment that generates instant pride in basketball when the ball passes through the hoop. To capture something truly special,” said Jean-Philippe Caron, chief creating officer of Protocol.
The task of developing a legendary trophy takes hundreds of hours and complex engineering so it can proudly stand beside other iconic awards around the world.
“It’s an exciting moment when you work with an amazing team to craft a trophy that captures the essence of our game and our country,” said Mike Morreale, CEO of the CEBL. “We are literally writing history together and the journey has been inspiring to think that in a few weeks six cities will be battling it out for the title of CEBL champions.”
