ODMHA History

Until the fall of 1972, minor hockey in the ODHA was administered by an appointed committee of the Executive. The Minor Hockey Management Committee met just two or three times a year to resolve disciplinary probems and set the playdown format for the Bantam, Midget and Juvenile Divisions. The 1972 playdowns created more problems than usual and three members of the Committee argued that minor hockey would run far more efficiently if the Committee met more frequently. It was thought that the ideal committee would consist of volunteers from within the minor hockey community, with one member from the ODHA Executive. The committee also wanted a voice on the executive and suggested a minor committee member to be given a seat with full voting privileges.

In the spring and summer of 1972, Don Parisien, Paul Leduc, and Dalton Gadbois travelled Eastern Ontario and stopped in such towns as Stittsville, Long Sault, and Morrisburg, and held local meetings with minor hockey associations to gather ideas and support for a new committee. It was thought that a regular committee will be able to resolve problems as soon as they arose and a more efficient playoff format might create more interest and better participation from area teams.

The final meeting was held in August at the Legion Hall in Smith Falls. Don Parisien explained the objectives of the committee and following a vote by those present, the Ottawa District Minor Hockey Association was tentatively formed. Approval from the ODHA Executive was required to formalize the proceedings.

An executive committee was designated with the task of approaching the ODHA for ratification and approval was granted prior to the start of the 1972-73 season. Col. Kenneth Work (Commanding Officer, CFB Uplands) was elected President, Dalton Gadbois (Cornwall) was named First Vice President, Roger Chevrier (Brockville) was named Second Vice President, and Jack Milligan (Ottawa) was named Secretary-Treasurer.

In the seventy-five years since its inception, hundreds of members have come through the ODHA's leagues and associations on their way to careers in the NHL: Players such as Ted Lindsay, Larry Robinson, Denis Potvin, Mike Gartner and steve Yzerman; Officials such as Cooper Smeaton, Bob Kilger and Wayne Bonney; and Coaches such as Bryan Murray, terry Murray, Doug Carpenter and Marc Crawford. From Allan Cups to Memorial Cups, Centennial Cups, and Olympic Gold Medals, ODHA teams have won a wealth of championships.

Today, its teams continue demonstrate excellent skills in competitive tournaments, and ODHA continues to maintain an innovative development program. Through skill development workshops unsurpassed anywhere in Canada, the ODHA continues to develop coaches, officials, trainers and players for the future of hockey.
