Kitimat announced as 2013 Coy Cup host

BC Hockey announced Dec. 18 that Kitimat has been selected as the host site for the 2013 Senior Male AA Coy Cup BC Hockey Championship.

BC Hockey announced Dec. 18 that Kitimat has been selected as the host site for the 2013 Senior Male AA Coy Cup BC Hockey Championship.

The Championships will be held March 12 — 16, 2013.

“I’m very happy to say that since securing the 2013 bid, we are in full swing gearing up for another exciting week of senior hockey this March,” said president/head coach of the Kitimat Ice Demons Cliff Madsen.

“Our committee is pumped up and already in action.  We have most of our volunteers from last year in place and the community is excited for the championship.”

“We are honoured and thrilled to have the opportunity to again host the provincial BC Hockey Senior AA Championship, which has become a bit of a ‘fixture’ at home or away in our hockey season,” commented Terry Marleau, general manager of the Kitimat Ice Demons.

The 2012-2013 Coy Cup will use a four (4) team format involving teams from the Central Interior Hockey League (CIHL).

This will be the second year in a row that Kitimat has hosted the Senior Male AA Championship.

The Coy Cup was donated to BC Hockey by Colonel Coy of the 50th Gordon Highlanders (now the 16th Scottish) of Victoria, B.C.

It is emblematic of the Senior AA Amateur Hockey Championship of British Columbia.

The first Coy Cup was awarded to the Enderby Hockey Club in the 1922-1923 season.

The Williams Lake Stampeders were crowned Coy Cup champions in the 2009 season.
