Two teams representing the Ontario Minor Hockey Association will participate in the 2018 Under 16 OHL Gold Cup in Kitchener from May 3 to 6, 2018.

The rosters are comprised of 40 of the best Minor Midget-aged players who played in the OMHA this season, all that were selected in the OHL Draft on April 7.

This year marks the sixth annual OHL Gold Cup, which was introduced in 2013 as part of the Hockey Canada Program of Excellence (POE). Ontario players selected from this event, have a chance to play for Canada at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, as they continue through the POE, to the Hockey Canada under-17 selection camp, held at the end of July.

New features of the OHL Gold Cup in 2018 include three off-ice education sessions, dedicated position specific practices, and a full-team game-day skate. Additionally, the format of the tournament itself has been updated to feature three pool games and one crossover game on the final day. The OHL Gold Cup champion will be the winner of the A1 versus B1 crossover game.

The eight teams participating in the OHL Gold Cup are OMHA Black, OMHA White, ALLIANCE, GTHL Blue, GTHL Red, HEO, HNO and NOHA.

Here are the rosters and schedule information for teams OMHA Black and OMHA White:
