ONTARIO JUNIOR A HOCKEY CHAMPIONSHIP TOURNAMENT
The Dudley-Hewitt Cup tournament is the prestigious Junior A hockey tournament for Central Canada. The tournament is held each spring to determine a winner who will move on to represent Central Canada in the National tournament, the RBC Cup, which determines the Canadian Jr. A Champion.
The Dudley-Hewitt Cup pits a host team against the champions of the playoffs in the Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL), the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League (NOJHL), and the Superior International Junior Hockey League (SIJHL). The players in these leagues are aged 16-21 and many aspire to play in the NHL.
THE PROUD HOST OF THE 2019 DUDLEY-HEWITT CUP
This year, the Town of Cochrane and the Cochrane Crunch are proud to host the Dudley-Hewitt at the Tim Horton Events Centre from April 30th to May 4th 2019.
The Cochrane Host Committee Chairperson, Sue Parton, explains what an honor and privilege it is to host this hockey tournament, saying “We are honoured and excited to be hosting the 2019 Dudley-Hewitt Cup Jr. A Hockey Tournament. This tournament will showcase the skills and talent that exists in the 3 Jr. A Hockey Leagues in Central Canada, perhaps even highlighting future stars of the NHL! We anticipate fast-paced, high-caliber hockey all week, and invite everyone to come and enjoy Jr. A hockey at it’s finest, right here in Cochrane, Ontario!”
Cochrane is where backyard ice rinks and street hockey is encouraged, where children learn to skate before they can run, and where NHL legend and Hockey Hall of Fame player Tim Horton was born. Cochrane is a place where hockey is ingrained in our culture and, now, a place where the Dudley-Hewitt Cup can call its home for 2019.
