The Bantam season has wrapped up for Albertan players after a successful Alberta Cup hosted this past weekend in Canmore. With the best 2001-born skaters in the province divided by regions, Calgary South was victorious in a lopsided final.
The semifinals are set to take place on Friday, but Wednesday’s results all but wrapped up the top-two seeds. The Rocky Mountain Raiders (3-1-0) and Brantford Ice Cats (3-1-0) are currently tied for first, with nine points through their first four games.
The 2016 Telus Cup began Monday and now the race to become Canada’s best midget AAA team is underway. The Saint John Vito’s are hosting the event based out of Quispamsis, New Brunswick, while the five regional champions throughout the country have qualified for the event.
Alberta isn’t without its stellar playoff series. In the Bantam AAA division, the Lethbridge Val Matteoti Golden Hawks find themselves in a close series against the Sherwood Park Flyers.
In three straight games (3-0, 4-3 OT, 4-3), the Lethbridge Golden Hawks beat the Sherwood Park United Cycle Flyers for the Alberta Bantam AAA Championship, winning on home ice.
