The Memorial Cup is the ultimate prize in Major Junior Hockey and one of the most difficult to win once, let alone repeat. As the players are only able to be part of a Junior Club from 16-20 years of age, time is short for them to have a chance at the cup. Sixty teams comprise the Canadian Hockey League and of that, only 7 are based in the US (5 in the Western Hockey League [WHL]) and 2 in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL).The Memorial Cup is held in a "host city" each year, which rotates between the three leagues. Saskatoon is the host city this season.
There are four teams who will compete in the tournament and here is a breakdown on them and how they got there.no comments no comments
