2 Clarington Toros - -
3 Oakville Rangers - -
4 Brampton 45's - -
5 Richmond Hill Coyotes - -

Players to Watch

Jordan Giacomin (Richmond Hill Coyotes) - Giacomin is a smart, physical defenceman that will anchor the always tough Coyotes defence. The second-year Midget possess great vision all over the ice and excels in making tough plays all over the ice look simple. Giacomin is a smooth skater with great instincts and often joins the rush contributing to the Coyotes offence.  

Evan Ilkos (Hamilton Bulldogs) - Ilkos might be the fastest player in the SCTA and is looking to improve off of a very strong Minor Midget season. Ilkos might be a little undersized, but do not let that fool you as he has all of the tools to be a go to guy for the Bulldogs. He is a slippery forward who has a knack for finding the back of the net in a multitude of different ways.
