As Canada's National Junior A Championship prepares to celebrate its 50th anniversary in May in Portage la Prairie, Man., Hockey Canada, in partnership with the CJHL, has announced that Canada's National Junior A Championship will return to its original name - the Centennial Cup and a new trophy - starting in 2020. Officialy it will be called the Centennial Cup, presented by Tim Hortons.
The National Junior A Championship, is an annual ice hockey competition that determines the Canadian Junior A champion. It is played under the supervision of Hockey Canada and the Canadian Junior Hockey League.
From my obserations of the new Centennial Cup, the new trophy contains elements of previous national championship trophies.
I do not see any elements in the new trophy that are in any way reminiscent to the Centennial Cup trophy used from 1990 to 1996, it's to bad because, that would have been the icing on the cake, so to speak. You can find images of the previous versions of the national Junior A trophy HERE.
2022 - All nine CJHL champions plus a Host will play for the National Championship, Centennial Cup, which will involve a Preliminary Round, 2 Quartefinals, 2 Semifinals and a Final.
