Langley (Mark Janzen) – The Trinity Western, University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, University of Victoria and Vancouver Island University hockey teams are proud to announce the 4th annual Captains Cup Tournament, presented by the Vancouver Giants.
The Captain’s Cup was established in 2017 as an annual tournament promoting university hockey in the Lower Mainland while raising awareness for the WHL’s Scholarship Program, available for players entering into post-secondary hockey.
“The WHL is the leading supplier of scholarships in Western Canada, and offers the most comprehensive scholarship in North America,” said Dale Saip, Senior Vice President with the Vancouver Giants. “The Vancouver Giants are pleased to support this exhibition series profiling our student-athlete alumni who are furthering their education while still competing at a very high level of hockey.”
This year’s tournament has expanded to 11 games, kicking off on Friday September 17th in Victoria and Vancouver. Games will be hosted by each participating team during the round-robin tournament, with the top two teams competing for the championship on Saturday October 9th at UBC. The winner will take home not only bragging rights for the year, but also the storied President’s Trophy generously donated by the BC Sports Hall of Fame.
“With the upcoming season just around the corner, we are thrilled to see the Captains Cup continuing on and building a strong tradition of university hockey in British Columbia,” says TWU Head Coach Barret Kropf. “We are excited to be finally playing some games coming out of the COVID pause, and know that this series will prepare us well for our first season in the Canada West conference. What a great way to showcase high-caliber university hockey in the province!”
