Ty Meunier plays top-tier winter hockey in St. Albert, Alberta, Canada. He spends countless hours stickhandling and shooting pucks in the basement with his younger brother. Ty’s ultimate dream is to play junior and/or University hockey and get to the NHL.
His dad spends many hours with Ty, coaching his teams and helping him with skill development. Ty’s favorite player is Connor McDavid and he tries to work as hard as he does to be a leader.
“I’m looking forward to playing with and against very strong players from different cities,” Ty said. “I also hope to make some new friendships along the way.”

The second annual Hockey Hall of Fame Future Legends Invitational in Toronto proved to be a huge success, thanks in large part to the 282 individual participants and 23 team participants at this year’s event.
Festivities began on Thursday with opening ceremonies for the ‘06 girls and ‘07 boys, followed by off-ice combine testing at The Hangar Sport & Event Centre in Toronto. After that, on-ice combine testing and round-robin action got underway with games running through Saturday morning.
Six ‘06 girls teams and twelve ‘07 boys teams were then invited for a private tour of the Hockey Hall of Fame in downtown Toronto, where athletes could observe the many pieces of hockey history on display and compete in virtual-reality games as well as getting team pictures taken with the Stanley Cup.
Sunday morning, competition was whittled down to four teams; Team Brodeur, Team Crosby, Team Lemieux and Team Gretzky for the boys and Team Goyette, Team Granato, Team James and Team Ruggiero for the girls.
The girls’ division was close all the way down the stretch, with 14 games over the weekend decided by two goals or less and two of the final three games decided by just one goal. It was Sadie Hotles’ lone goal in the championship game that would give Team Goyette the 1-0 win over Team Granato in the girls’ final.
Michael Misa scored in overtime to send Team Lemieux to the championship game on Sunday afternoon, where they would head to overtime yet again. However, this time it would be Conrad Fondrk for Team Gretzky that would score the deciding goal, taking home the championship with a 4-3 win.
The individual-entry event for the ‘06 girls and ‘07 boys proved to be an incredible success, with phenomenal competition that provided a wealth of amazing content, photos, videos and more that we are excited to share in the coming days!
Just as exciting this weekend was the promising talent displayed at the younger ‘08, ‘09 and ‘10 divisions that we cannot wait to see again at HHOF Invitational events in the coming years!
Our ‘08 division saw two talented European teams face off, where the Golden Ring Selects from Russia defeated the Czech Knights 9-2 in the championship game. The ‘09 division was a nail biter, with Axis Hockey winning an overtime thriller to defeat Pro Hockey. The ‘10 division saw Pro Hockey reign victorious, though, with back-to-back goals in the third period to win its division 2-1 over The Hill Academy.

Elliotte Friedman, from Hockey Night in Canada, took over the mic and MC’d – announcing the 12 team rosters for the boys ceremony. The athletes kept Friedman entertained by asking him questions throughout the ceremony. After the boy teams were announced, a combine took place where the athletes were measured and ranked according to their performance. They competed in speed and agility exercises that mimic the muscle groups needed in competitive hockey.
For the girls opening ceremony, 3x Gold Medalist Jennifer Botterill, MC’d the event – announcing the 6 team rosters, while taking questions from the athletes and lending out advice.
