KMHA Alumni Selected to Attend World Jr. Selection Camp
Submitted By KMHA on Thursday, October 29, 2020
KMHA alumni Cole Schwindt has been invited to Team Canada's World Junior Selection camp in preparation for the World Junior Tournament which will be taking place in Edmonton, AB at Christmas.

Cole, 19, played his entire minor hockey career as a Kitchener Jr. Ranger.  During his minor midget season Cole's play and hard work didn't go unnoticed as many teams inquired about him.  Listed as 6' 154 lbs Cole was selected in the OHL Priority Draft by the Mississauga Steelheads, 4th round, 69th pick overall.  Cole was also named to Team Alliance for the OHL Gold Cup Tournament.  The OHL Gold Cup Tournament is part of Hockey Canada's Program of Excellence and stepping stone for the National U17, U18 and World Jr. Team.

In his draft season Cole was slated to attend Mississauga's training camp and then return to his hometown for a year of junior development with his hometown Kitchener Dutchmen of the GOJHL.  Instead, Cole's off season hard work paid off as he had a strong training camp in Mississauga and the Steelheads had no choice but to sign him to an OHL contract and he immediately made the jump from KMHA Minor Midget to the OHL.

In 2019, now listed as 6' 3" 186 lbs, Cole once again heard his name called in a draft when the NHL Florida Panthers selected him in the 3rd round, 81st overall.  

Cole was anxious to return to Mississauga to continue his development but like all other OHL players his season start has been delayed.  Not one to sit around Cole continued his training and has been selected to attend Team Canada's Selection Camp starting November 16, 2020 in Red Deer, Alberta.  In total, 5 former Alliance players are included in the 46 players from across Canada invited to the selection camp.  There are 7 players eligible to return from last year's Gold Medal winning team.

Cole who is always willing to help out assisted in the demonstration of all of KMHA's summer skills challenges that allowed our players to work on a variety of shooting skills over the summer and submit the video of their training through social mediate to KMHA.   Cole was also a guest on KMHA's Summer Coach Webinar where he spoke with coaches from KMHA about skill development leading to levels beyond minor hockey.

Good luck Cole, KMHA is proud of you!!
