The Mississauga Rebels topped the league with 12 players represented from their team. The Toronto Marlboros came a close second with 10 representatives, the Vaughan Kings with 6 representatives, the Don Mills Flyers with 5 representatives, the North York Rangers with 4 representatives, the Toronto Nationals with 2 representatives and the Toronto Red Wings with 1.
The game itself started off fairly fast paced however, a lot of the play was sloppy and at times some players looked as if they were trying to make fancy moves and plays to impress the scouts instead of making the simple plays they needed to put the puck in the net. There were a lot of missed tape to tape passes and the execution of 2 on 1's could have been better as well, especially for team Kypreos, but I am sure nerves had a part to play in that.
The final result was a 9-2 win for team Clark. The goal tending for team Clark was stellar especially in the first half where Liam Herbst recorded a shut out. All and all, even though it was a high scoring game, there wasn't any one or two players that jumped out for stellar play that was head and shoulders above any other player in the game. Dante Salituro did manage to record a hat trick however for team Clark which placed him in the best position to earn star of the game for team Clark.
At the end of the game, Don Cherry made an appearance to hand out the star of the game for each team which was a nice surprise. The 2 stars of the game were:
Team Kypreos: (F) Sam Bennett - Toronto Marlboros
Team Clark: (F) Dante Salituro - Don Mills Flyers
