P-A Outlasts The Rest At Telus Cup

The Prince Albert Mintos (West) have won the 2014 TELUS Cup, claiming Canada’s 41st National Midget Championship with a 4-3 triple-overtime win over the Grenadiers de Châteauguay (Quebec) in Sunday’s gold medal game at Mosaic Place.

The game was the longest in tournament history at 108 minutes and 36 seconds, surpassing the previous mark of 102:24 set in the Mintos’ 5-4 win over the Calgary Buffaloes in the gold medal game of the 2006 TELUS Cup.

The victory gives Prince Albert its third gold medal, joining 2006 and 2007. The Mintos are just the sixth team in the history of Canada’s National Midget Championship to win at least three national titles, joining the Regina Pat Canadians (1983, 1988, 1994, 1999), Couillard/Gouverneurs de Ste-Foy (1978, 1979, 1996, 2001), Notre Dame Hounds (1980, 1986, 2009, 2010), Lions du Lac St-Louis (1981, 1985, 1992) and Riverains du Collège Charles-Lemoyne/Richelieu (1987, 1990, 1998).

Body Checking Cut!

Hockey Canada has removed body checking from the Pee Wee age group.

After much debate the national governing body followed suit with Hockey Alberta and Nova Scotia who independently decided to remove it on their own.

The motion passed by a nearly unanimous vote, with Saskatchewan registering the only “no” vote in opposition.

The provincial federations have, however, agreed to develop a bodychecking standard for coaching to be implemented in 2014-15.
