THE MEMORIAL CUP



THE MEMORIAL CUP

Memorial Cup

In March of 1919 the Ontario Hockey Association donated the OHA Memorial Cup to honour and remember the many young men and women who made the supreme sacrifice for Canada in World War I. The Memorial Cup has since been awarded to Canada's National Junior Champions.

Note: You will only find here the years from 1919 to 1970 because..... In 1971, Junior 'A' Hockey was divided, to form a 'Major Junior' and a 'Tier II' level. The 'Major Junior' continues to play for the Memorial Cup. The 'Tier II' level, commonly referred to as 'Junior A', play for a new National Championship Trophy, The Manitoba Centennial Cup.enjoy, Paul C. Beugeling

Canadian Major Junior Hockey League

1967 was an important year for junior hockey in Western Canada as seven teams, including the defending Memorial Cup champion Edmonton Oil Kings, formed the Canadian Major Junior Hockey League as an attempt to establish one junior "A" league in the west.

The establishment of the CMJHL, which was the forerunner of the present Western Hockey League, created several issues including who would be eligible to represent the west in the Memorial Cup finals.

It was determined that the CMJHL teams would not have the right to participate in the playdowns for the national junior hockey championship and as a result, for the first time since 1959 a team other than the Oil Kings would represent the west in the national final.
