The OGHA would like to Congratulate Lauren McNeil who very recently committed to playing NCAA Division III hockey next season for Plymouth State University in New Hampshire.
Lauren started in the OGHA playing fundamentals at age 6, and continued on playing with Ottawa Ice until the end of her first year of Midget.
During her 10 years with Ottawa Ice, she’s had some really great experiences – including winning a Provincial Gold Medal championship in Atom B (where she scored the game winner in the Semi Final in the 6th overtime period). Lauren just finished Grade 12 at Ontario Hockey Academy where she Captained Team Junior in her last season.
Good luck with the Panthers next season Lauren.
The health and safety of all participants in the sport is the utmost importance to the OWHA.As such, tryouts for the 2020-21 season will not be conducted this Spring. Instead the OWHA will provide guidance on when the introduction of the 2020-21 season will begin, subject to the Hockey Canada Board of Directors' future decision when to reinstall all Hockey Canada sanctioned activities. Such introduction will take into consideration ice availability, capacity and other logistics involved in organizing hockey programs.
The OWHA will be in direct contact with OGHA to establish when sanctioned activities can resume.
Attached is the Hockey Canada Player Pathway Implementation document effective for the 2020-2021 season.
