OHF Atom Championships Unleashed in Hamilton
The Atom OHF (Ontario Hockey Federation) finals will touch down in Hamilton April 11-13 at the Flamborough North Wentworth Arenas. This tournament is a milestone for many young hockey players as it only occurs during a player’s “major years”, and only five teams are allowed to compete. For fans of the game, this is a sure-fire guarantee for hockey played at the highest level.

The tournament schedule is a 10 game round robin which will decide who plays in one of two semifinals. The two winning teams will face off at 4:30pm on Sunday for the OHF atom championship.

Representing the OMHA, is the Burlington Eagles who are no strangers to late season games. They won the OMHA title this year and were finalists in 2013.

The Kitchener Rangers have also proved to be a consistent power house capturing their 2nd consecutive Alliance championship.

In the GTHL, the Toronto Marlboros defeated the Toronto Titans in the finals for a second consecutive league championship. Both Toronto clubs will compete in the tournament.

This year’s hosts are the Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs who compiled a 28-18-7 record finishing 3rd place in the SCTA regular season standings. Just last year, the Jr. Bulldogs were bronze medal winners in the OMHA and the year previous they won OHMA gold in 2012. The Bulldogs took points from both the Marlboros and Titans earlier this year in tournament play, so they are chomping at the opportunity to prove that they can compete with Ontario’s best…this time on home ice!

In lieu of admission fees, the Hamilton Jr. Bulldogs are requesting a canned food donation be made at the door in support of the Hamilton Food Bank. Don’t miss this opportunity to see Atom AAA hockey at its very best. Come out to the OHF Atom finals April 11- 13 for hockey passion unleashed!
