20 in 20: Everest Academy

Jun 26, 2021 | Craig Peterson


A closer look at each of the 20 teams participating at the 2021 World Selects Trophy.

The ‘20 in 20’ series takes a deep dive into each of the 20 teams competing at the historic World Selects Trophy in Nashville, Tennessee on June 28th. This 15U tournament is set to feature the best players in the age group from around the world with players from the U.S., Canada and Europe. Today, we take a closer look at Everest Academy.


Located in Vaughan, Ontario, Canada, Everest Academy is a co-ed private school for student-athletes. Regardless of a student’s passion, Everest provides a challenging, stimulating, safe and supportive learning environment where individuals strive to exceed their potential. Karl Subban, father of NHL Draft picks P.K., Jordan and Malcolm, serves as principal of the academy that boasts a number of other NHL and college alumni. Citing seven NHL Draft picks and more than 80 Canadian Hockey League (CHL) picks as well, Everest has seen the likes of Anthony Duclair (1995), Ben Jones (1999) and Kirill Maximov (1999) in recent years. 

The academy serves as a training ground during the school day, allowing for players to compete for their local youth teams during the regular season. The 2021 tournament team is composed of players from the Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL), with 13-of-17 coming from the Markham Majors

Canada has been in a fairly restricted shutdown throughout much of the last year, and many players in Ontario lost their entire 2020-21 winter seasons. The World Selects tournament could quite possibly be a return to action for many of the Canadian players in the field.
