News and Announcements
North York, Ontario – The North York Rangers would like to congratulate Nick Campoli, Joey Maziarz and Jett Alexander on getting named to Canada East’s roster for the upcoming World Junior A Challenge.
Campoli has proven himself to be one of the OJHL’s most dangerous offensive forwards. Committed to Clarkson University in the NCAA, Campoli was named the OJHL’s top prospect last year after recording 32 points in just 20 games. Currently first in team scoring with 30 points in 29 games, Campoli was one of two players drafted to the NHL from the OJHL, going to the newest expansion team, the Vegas Golden Knights. Campoli had a big training camp, which included both of Canada’s goals on Monday against the OJHL ‘97-born All-Stars.
Maziarz has had a wonderful impact for the Rangers since joining the club last year, getting named to the OJHL’s 2nd All-Prospect team last year. In 29 games this season, Maziarz has put up three goals and 14 points while earning lots of ice time in his sophomore campaign. Maziarz has become one of the best shutdown defenders in the league, becoming a nuisance for any team that dares to battle him.
Considered one of the best goalies in the OJHL, Alexander has posted nine wins and boasts a .932 SV% in 18 games played. Last year, after starting the season with Georgetown, Alexander returned home to the Rangers, where he’s been near the top in all goalie stats in his first season as an OJHL starting goalie. Alexander was also named to the NHL’s most recent Central Scouting Watch List for the upcoming draft, set to take place in Dallas, Texas this June.
Campoli, Maziarz and Alexander all recently represented the Rangers at the Eastern Canada Cup Challenge in Trenton, an event where all three players impressed scouts and fans alike.
North York is also one of two teams in the OJHL to have three players named to the roster, with the Wellington Dukes being the other.
The 2017 World Junior A Challenge will begin with Canada East battling Russia in Truro, Nova Scotia on December 10th.

This season, we are celebrating 60 years of hockey at the Goulding Park Hockey Association. The North York Rangers are proud of being a part of the 60 year tradition of the Goulding Park Hockey Association, in providing competitive hockey to the community at all levels. Combined with Goulding Park and the North York Rangers OJHL Jr. A team, we offer approximately 1,000 children the opportunity to learn and develop their hockey skills, from the age of 4 when a child first puts on skates through to our North York Rangers AAA and OJHL Junior A teams. As a community based not for profit association we operate only with volunteers who contributed more than 40,000 hours during an average season. We look forward to many more years of growth of minor hockey at Goulding Park Hockey Association.
This season, we also remember the passing of our great friend and mentor Brant Snow. Brant was the longtime president of the North York Rangers and Goulding Park Hockey Association as well as an executive with the North York Rangers Junior A team playing in the OJHL. Mr. John Filion, City of Toronto Ward 23 Councillor, remembers Brant as someone who didn’t liked to be singled out, but preferring to blend in with the team, as if he really thought there was nothing special about what he accomplished over four decades as the most exceptional community volunteer he has ever seen. Over four decades, he played key roles in many local and regional sports organizations. His passion for the game of hockey and baseball and all his players will not easily be replaced.
*The league unveiled the Brant Snow Memorial Trophy that will be awarded each year to the OJHL
Regular Season Champions. “Brant Snow was one of the longest serving Governors in the OJHL and the
Board wanted to ensure that his dedication to not only Junior hockey but all of hockey in Ontario was honoured
by the league”, said OJHL Commissioner Marty Savoy. “Starting this season, the OJHL Regular Season
Champions will be awarded the Brant Snow Memorial Trophy in honour of Mr. Snow” *
*“What an appropriate tribute to Brant’s memory”, stated Diane Snow, Brant’s wife. The league is currently in
the process of the development of the trophy and it will be revealed once it is completed. *
