The Whitby Minor Hockey Association
When Paul Vorstadt joined National Bank Financial in 2016, he had about 21 years of experience in the financial services industry, more than half of which was spent as a vice president at TD Waterhouse in Markham, Ontario. When not attending to his professional responsibilities, Paul Vorstadt actively participates in community activities, co-chairing the St. John’s Rehab Foundation Golf Classic and coaching for the Whitby Minor Hockey Association (WMHA).
Minor ice hockey in Canada, not to be confused with minor league professional hockey, refers to organized amateur youth ice hockey governed by Hockey Canada. The WMHA traces its roots to the early years of the 20th century and has belonged to the provincial body, the Ontario Minor Hockey Association, for more than 75 years.
For the 2013 – 14 season, approximately 2,550 boys and girls will play for about 158 house league teams, and another 600 or so will play for WMHA’s 35 representative teams. The house league is organized into teams by age, and those compete against each other; the representative teams, also organized by age, compete against teams from other hockey associations, often traveling to other cities for their matches. Only residents of Whitby may play on SMHA teams.
Many current and former National Hockey League players played minor hockey with WMHA, including Wayne and Keith Primeau, Paul Ranger, Jamie Allison, Peter Vipond, Brad Dalgamo, and Mike Keenan.
