The home of three of the last five national champions, all eyes will be on the Central showdown.

Not only are the Toronto Young Nationals the hosts of the Central Regional, having booked their ticket before the postseason even began, but the reigning TELUS Cup champs came alive in the playoffs to win the GTHL title.

But the Road to the TELUS Cup won’t be an easy one, with the dominant Mississauga Reps filling the GTHL slot and two other regular season top seeds (the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the GNU18L and Nepean Raiders of HEO) looking to book a ticket to the national championship.
