Teachers Life Academic Spotlight Series


The Ontario Hockey League strives to develop amateur student athletes both on the ice and in the classroom. Throughout November and December, the Teachers Life Academic Spotlight Series will highlight how OHL players are applying the knowledge they’ve gained through their studies to their daily lives.

“Teachers Life are proud sponsors of the OHL’s Academic Spotlight Program,” says Doug Baker, President and CEO of Teachers Life. “The dedication of the OHL’s student-athletes to their education mirrors Teachers Life’s commitment to students and educators across the province. By celebrating these athletes, they become role models to kids in their communities through their dedication to academic excellence, integrity and curiosity.”

Follow along throughout the coming weeks as OHL clubs shine a light on how OHL players are excelling on the ice and in life as we continue to prepare for the planned start of the 2020-21 OHL Regular Season set to launch on February 4, 2021.
