Cambridge, ON – With the 106th overall (7th round) pick, the Calgary Flames have selected winger Trevor Hoskin from the Ontario Junior Hockey League’s (OJHL) Cobourg Cougars.

A product of Belleville, Ontario, Hoskin is a May 2004 birthday, meaning he’s being selected in his third year of draft eligibility. The 2023-24 campaign was his third in the OJHL, and he erupted offensively, posting 42 goals and 100 points over 52 games. In additon to being names OHA player of the year, he was also named the OJHL’s top forward and most valuable player for his efforts. He also helped Canada’s entry at the World Junior-A Championships capture a silver medal.

Hoskin was not listed in the NHL Central Scouting Service’s final rankings or in Elite Prospects’ draft guide. Prior to his breakout season, he wsn’t even on the radar of NHL teams. Hoskins is yet another reminder that player development is not a sprint; but rather a marathon! Hoskin is heading off to play for Niagara University, Division 1 NCAA in September.
