13 #TPHTrained players selected in OHL Draft; nine from TPH OHL Cup team

Total Package Hockey is proud to congratulate and celebrate the 13 #TPHTrained players who were selected by Ontario Hockey League teams Saturday during the league’s annual OHL Priority Selection.

“Our TPH family is incredibly proud of these players for this outstanding recognition and opportunity,” said TPH owner Nathan Bowen. “The hard work is just beginning, but we know from their mindset and their character that they’re up to the challenge, and they will continue to make us proud at the next level – wherever that may be.”

Nine of the players who heard their names called were part of the TPH team that competed in the OHL Cup. Nearly half of the roster being selected in the OHL Draft just weeks after the event took place adds to the accomplishment list for the group, after they reached the quarterfinals of the prestigious tournament in March.

TPH Detroit’s Jack Stolicker shines at OHL Combine

This past weekend, Jack Stolicker represented TPH Detroit at the OHL Combine, an annual event that showcases top OHL Priority Selection-eligible players for scouts and teams.

Along with playing in scrimmages, players were put through on and off-ice testing, and there, Stolicker excelled in both.

The Compuware 16U forward ranked No. 3 among all forwards in both the off-ice and on-ice testing.

He also competed for Team Ekblad in the games, helping his squad win the 2019 OHL Combine Championship as a combination of game-play and physical testing.

“It was awesome,” Stolicker said. “I was able to get a better understanding of what it’s like to play juniors. The off-ice and on-ice testing was a blast – it was similar to what they do at the NHL Combine. It was awesome being able to work with other highly skilled players that I’ve only had the opportunity to play against, and it was great to learn from coaches and staff that work within the league.”

Stolicker now prepares to compete for Compuware in the 2019 USA Hockey National Championships in Grand Rapids, Mich., later this week.

He credits TPH and training partner 2SP in helping him prepare for big moments like these.

“TPH and 2SP both, they are always preparing us for moments like this – they help us become better athletes on and off the ice so that we can have success in whatever we’re doing.”
