Championship Sunday has Come to a Close


Late Sunday afternoon the 6th Annual Canada Day Cup presented by Sher-Wood came to a thrilling finish. The first two days of this tournament featured great action, and Sunday was more of the same, as the heart-pounding action continued without fail! There were too many shootouts to count, as game after game went right down to the wire.

We want to thank each and every team that joined us in the Nation's Capital. We hope that you had a great weekend, and a great start to your summer as well. We hope that you enjoy your break from hockey, but are just as excited for next year to get underway as we are!

Lastly, please see below for a list of all of our tournament champions and finalists


The Stage is Set for a Sunday Finale

Saturday brought with it another exciting day at the Canada Day Cup at the Sensplex. Action kicked off bright and early at 8:00am, and continued all day long.

What better way to end the day than some pivotal matchups in tournaments’ final round-robin games, ultimately deciding who was in and who was out. Following a very exciting round-robin all of the semi-finals have been set.  It came down to the wire as many divisions needed the final games to determine the playoff matches.  Fans in attendance waited for the final sound of the buzzer to find out who was moving on. In the end, only a select few could move on to Championship Sunday.

The Canada Day Cup is always pleased to host our out of country hockey clubs, as this year is no exception. These teams have performed admirably, as fans can expect both the Syracuse Nationals, and Syracuse Mountain Hockey to be heard from before the final buzzer tomorrow. If this tournament is any indication, the long standing rivalry in international hockey between Canada and the USA, is only going to heat up over the years!

Tomorrow morning will come quickly for players who will go to sleep tonight dreaming of winning a tournament championship tomorrow. Some teams will have to play two games to get there, while other squads have earned a trip straight to the finals. No matter the road that these teams take, nothing will come easy, as there is a lot of hockey left to play. Remember that you can check out playoff matchups on the "schedule" tab on this site, and we will see you tomorrow at the Sensplex!

To all the teams heading home, the Canada Day Cup and the entire staff at the Bell Sensplex would like to thank you for your participation at this year’s 6th Annual Canada Day Cup.  It was an absolute pleasure to spend a weekend amongst such incredible talents!  Please be safe in your travels home and we can’t wait to see you again next year!

A Thrilling Day One is in the Books


Could there be a better way to spend the the long weekend than to participate in the 6th annual Canada Day Cup? The 35 teams who travelled to Ottawa this weekend certainly thought not!  This three day tournament features teams from the Novice to Bantam division.

Now that Friday is in the books, each team in the tournament has played two games. With two more games for all teams on Saturday, the playoff dream is still very much alive for everyone at the tournament. Fans at the Bell Sensplex certainly have a lot of good hockey to look forward to, as day one was packed with close contests throughout. This tournament had a lot of offence throughout the day, as snipers were tickling the twine left, right, and centre.

Action will begin again bright and early, as the Jr Rangers are set to battle the Syracuse Nationals, in the Novice division. By the time the sun sets tomorrow night, several teams will have sealed their fates, in the playoff rounds.
