If you want to see the stars of the future now, look no further than the OHL Cup. Over the past four years the tournament's graduates have achieved great things. Three of the past four players chosen first overall at the NHL Entry Draft are OHL Cup alumni. Taylor Hall, John Tavares and Steven Stamkos as well as 2011 Calder trophy winner Jeff Skinner all skated in the OHL Cup before going on to dominate major junior.

The 2012 installment of the tournament features the top minor midget teams in Ontario and a few special invites from the United States. The 20-team tournament is unique because it features the champions and finalists from their respective leagues and also serves as the last chance for Ontario League scouts to see eligible teens before the OHL draft in April.

THN’s Ryan Kennedy takes a closer look at the unique event that is the OHL Cup.
