Cornwall - Sep. 9, 2011 - The Ontario Hockey Academy is a high performance academic-athletic private preparatory school located in Cornwall, Ontario. It is dedicated to providing boys (Prep, Major Midget AAA, Minor Midget) and girls (Intermediate AA, Midget AA) with the very best in academics along with elite hockey.

The school, which is starting its fourth year, has approximately 120 students enrolled, including international students. The young hockey players who attend the Academy have many role models to look up to!

In the photo above, Giles Lascelle (middle), who is the OHA Director of Hockey, is standing in front of the Ontario Hockey Academy with former NHL players Ray Sheppard (right) and Yves Sarault (left). Lascelle played college hockey at Concorida University in Canada and he played professionally in Olofstrom, Sweden. All four of Lascelle's children play hockey, and his oldest daughter Kayla is an NCAA Women's Hockey Champion playing for Norwich University.

Ray Sheppard who played for six different NHL teams including the Detroit Red Wings and New York Rangers was the Director of Hockey Operations at the Ontario Hockey Academy in 2009-2010. Sheppard has returned to Cornwall to become the Assistant Coach of the Jr. A Cornwall Colts, and he will spend time working with the Boys Program at OHA.

Yves Sarault has played over a hundred NHL games, and has played for six different NHL teams including the Montreal Canadians and the Ottawa Senators. Sarault was a star player in the AHL and the QMJHL. He is the Head Coach of the Midget Major White Team at OHA.

Sheppard, Sarault, and Lascelle are roles models of excellence and dedication to the game of hockey, and an inspiration to the young players that attend the Ontario Hockey Academy.
