Freddie Hamilton, Dougie Hamilton and Jamie Oleksiak, three former Crestwood Preparatory College students, earned spots on Canada’s Junior Team that will compete in the upcoming World Championships starting on December 26th in Calgary and Edmonton. All three boys played together at Crestwood before departing in order to try to fulfilling their dream of playing in the NHL. Over the past two years all three have taken the next step in reaching the NHL with Freddie being drafted in the 5th round by the San Jose Sharks in 2010, Jamie in the 1st round (14th Overall) by the Dallas Stars in 2011 and Dougie in the 1st round (9th overall) by the Boston Bruins. You can hear more from the Hamilton brothers as in their interview on TSN (click here).
Congratulations to all three boys from the entire Crestwood Community. We will be watching and cheering you on as you go for Gold this December and will continue to follow your career paths as you try to make the ultimate goal of playing in the NHL.
