Championship Sunday has Come to a Close


Late Sunday afternoon the 5th Annual Canada Day Cup presented by Max Puissance 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. As you can see above, the Sens mascot Sparty even showed up for the festivities.

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!

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.

The girls U10 division has been a particular highlight at this tournament as each and every game has been a close one. The Quinte Penguins are slated to battle the Rushforth Selects tomorrow in the first final of the day, in a game that will surely be packed with excitement. These teams played each other to a shootout earlier in the day. Speaking of shootouts, today's signature game was surely between the Rushforth Selects and SHD Ottawa, who played a back and forth affair, before heading to a shootout. A slick backhand goal gave Rushforth the win in this game, which could prove to be a playoff preview.

The Canada Day Cup is always pleased to host our of country hockey clubs, as this year is no exception. These teams have performed admirably, as fans can expect both the Rockford Ice Hogs, and the Boston Selects 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!

Tournament participants were also treated to a very successful Canada Day Cup party today, presented by HTG Sports. The picture above, is a shot of local band, "Brown Paper Bag" performing in the fieldhouse.

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 three 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!

A Thrilling Day One is in the Books

Could there be a better way to spend the days leading up to the long weekend than to participate in the 5th annual Canada Day Cup? The 40 teams who travelled to Ottawa this weekend certainly thought not!  This three day tournament features teams from the Major Novice to Major Bantam division, as well as a Girls U10 group.  The action kicked off this morning at 8am, when the Maxtech Rage took on SHD Ottawa, and continued into the evening as United took on Flamme Olympiquie Noir in the day’s final game.

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.

Tomorrow is an extra special day at the Sensplex, as we will be celebrating Canada Day a few days early, with our Canada Day Cup party. Free pizza and pop for all players will be just the beginning of the excitement, as multiple games, as well as a live band will be included in the itinerary. The party will begin at 10am, and continue until 3pm, assuming things don't get too rowdy.

Action will begin again bright and early, as the Stealth of St. Lawrence are set to battle the Stars of the North, in the Novice division. By the time the sun sets tomorrow night, several teams will have sealed their fates, in the playoff rounds.
