The 2023-2024 hockey season ended with a bang for Belleville’s Trevor Hoskin.

This low season is also going well.

The former Quinte Red Devil and Cobourg Cougar was selected in the fourth round of the 2024 NHL Entry Draft on Saturday.

“I kind of knew during the playoffs this year that I could be picked. There was a lot of talk with my agent about me being picked. In recent weeks it was clear that if I was going, it would be in the fourth through seventh rounds.”

He was selected 106th overall by the Calgary Flames and says all the focus and effort made it worth every penny.

“All those times you wake up and don’t feel like it, or you’re tired or you don’t want to go to the gym. Just going through those moments and thinking about the bigger picture. Now to see my name on the draft list, it was all worth it.”

Hoskin will attend Niagara University next fall and he says that is still his intention.

This past season, Hoskin was the OJHL Most Valuable Player and the Canadian Junior Hockey League Top Forward. He also won a silver medal with Team Canada East at the World Junior A Challenge and was the Tournament MVP.

We asked the 20-year-old what he would tell himself when he was 10.

‘He would be proud, I know that. It wasn’t always easy. As a child you always dream of such a moment. It’s unbelievable that this is happening now. To see my name next to an NHL team and here we are ten years later, it’s right in front of me.
