FORMER TORONTO RED WING BARRETT HAYTON WINS GOLD WITH THE CANADIAN JR. TEAM


“Captain Canada Played Through Pain”


“Even though there was a possibility of him missing the final game, Barrett Hayton had other plans. He wasn’t going to let the shoulder injury he suffered in the semi-finals make him miss the gold-medal game against Russia.
Hayton played through the pain and it was noticeable. For the first two periods, he looked to be a little reserved in his play instead of being his usual aggressive self in the offensive zone. However, he started to get more comfortable as the game went on. It wasn’t until 8:39 when Captain Canada came through and tied it for Canada.”

BARRETT HAYTON

SELECTED 5TH OVERALL BY THE ARIZONA COYOTES


Barrett Hayton reportedly makes Arizona Coyotes opening day roster

by James Reeve2 days agoFollow @JamesRJReeve

The Arizona Coyotes have reportedly confirmed their roster for the opening day of the 2018/19 NHL season and first-round pick Barrett Hayton has made the cut.

Hayton was the Coyotes’ first-round draft pick this year (fifth overall), surprising many due to Czech winger Filip Zadina still being available.

The Canadian centre, who stands at 6-foot-1, 190lbs, was drafted after an impressive second year playing for the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds in the OHL.

Hayton registered 60 points (21 goals, 39 assists) in 63 regular season games and added a further 21 points (eight goals, 13 assists) in 24 playoff games.

He also picked up the Bobby Smith Trophy as the OHL Scholastic Player of the Year.

Since arriving at training camp, Hayton hasn’t looked out of place among the team’s regular NHL players but does look to be benefitting from the number of injuries the Coyotes are struggling with at the moment.

Centres Alex Galchenyuk and Christian Dvorak are set to miss the team’s opening game of the season against the Dallas Stars, forcing Ric Trocchet into some tactical changes with his line-up.

Hayton could now find himself playing third or fourth line minutes at centre for the Coyotes, giving him the best opportunity of impressing the coach.

Hayton could find himself sent back down to juniors, however, with the team allowed to play him in nine regular season games before needing to make a decision on where he plays for the rest of the season.

If Hayton plays ten games for the Coyotes, he will forfeit one year of his entry-level contract.

If, however, he is returned to the Greyhounds before this point, he would be eligible for an entry-level slide – allowing the team to keep him on his entry-level deal for three years from next season.

Considering the surprise many felt when Hayton was drafted, it appears that the Canadian could turn out to be the kind of player the Coyotes envisaged on draft day – with Zadina, who was considered the third-best player in the 2018 draft, starting the season in the AHL.

WE ARE VERY PROUD OF FORMER RED WINGS PLAYER KYLE CLARKE:

CLARKE NAMED HUMANITARIAN OF YEAR


The Ontario Junior Hockey League today announced that Kyle Clarke (pictured during humanitarian aid trip to Sousa, Dominican Republic – photo courtesy of the Clarke Family) of the North York Rangers has been named the 2016-17 recipient of the OJHL Humanitarian-of-the-Year Award.

More than doubling his offensive output this season as one of the Rangers veteran leaders, the 19-year old native of Mississauga, Ontario set a high standard of excellence for his teammates, both on-and-off the ice.

Named the club’s captain entering the 2016-17 season, Clarke has not disappointed during his third full year with North York. He would finish second in scoring on the Rangers with both 20 goals and 50 points in 52 regular season games played, while also leading the team with four game-winning goals. Clarke’s offensive output was more than double his previous career best, set in 2015-16 and was significantly more than his entire 129 game OJHL career combined.

For much of Clarke’s life, he has battled an asthmatic condition, and has chosen to not only overcome all the obstacles that he has faced, but to become a spokesperson for the condition and do his part to assist others with the disease. For more than a decade, dating back to his minor hockey years in the atom age group (9-10 years of age), Clarke has been an ambassador and spokesperson for the Lung Association, speaking on living with the condition as a high-performance athlete. All the while, he has taken part in speaking engagements aimed at encouraging kids with asthma to not let it stop them from achieving their dreams, as well as coping mechanisms to deal with day-to-day life. Featured in newspaper articles, television shows and as a spokesperson for different camps and foundations, Clarke has set an exemplary standard for players across the league to follow.

As if his work with young people dealing with the effects of asthma isn’t enough, Clarke has more recently taken on a new charitable endeavour with the Live Different organization. Over the past couple of years, he has volunteered his own personal time with two separate humanitarian aid trips to Sousa, Dominican Republic, helping
to build four houses and a school, as well as other community improvements for the impoverished area. Clarke would personally raise more than $5,000 over two years that was contributed directly to the build and impacting the lives of less fortunate individuals was a very humbling and rewarding experience that he cherished and looks
forward to continuing in the future. Finally, this summer, Clarke is also volunteering his time as an assistant coach with a Toronto-area Under-14 team, called the “Canada Red Cottons” that will compete in a tournament being held in Beijing, China.

The OJHL Humanitarian of the Year is awarded to the player adjudged to have made the most notable contribution to his community in a humanitarian sense, including, but not limited to charitable work, school visits and extracurricular off-ice activities.

Josh Maguire of the Cobourg Cougars was named runner-up in the OJHL award selection to Clarke.

The Cobourg Cougars captain, and recent commit to the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT) Ridgebacks, is the heart-and-soul of his club as he looks to lead them to a national championship as host of the 2017 RBC Cup, National Junior ‘A’ Championship. Maguire is extremely active in the community, working with various minor hockey team programs, as well as the kids ‘Learn to Play.’ Perhaps most importantly, he is the founder of the Bryan Rose Sports Fund in memory of his late Grandfather, raising thousands of dollars for families
that cannot afford to have their children participate in hockey.

Later this week, the Trainer-of-the-Year Award recipient will be announced.
