2014 TELUS Cup
They're already one of only four teams to ever win back-to-back national championships, but the Red Deer Chiefs want to become the first to win three TELUS Cups in a row; can they get past the Okanagan Rockets first to book their trip to Moose Jaw?
It has been 12 years since Sidney Crosby led the Dartmouth Subways to the lone gold medal game appearance by an Atlantic team. Will it be Central, Halifax, Kensington, Pictou County or Saint John earning a chance to go for a second?
It is the most successful region in national championship history, with 15 gold medals since 1984 and seven in the last 10 years. Who among Notre Dame, Prince Albert, Thunder Bay and Winnipeg will represent the West in Moose Jaw?
Champions from the Alliance, GNML, GTHL, OEMHL and OMHA will join the host Markham Waxers to face off for a single berth at the TELUS Cup. London, Sudbury, Toronto, Ottawa, Ajax/Pickering, Markham – who goes to Moose Jaw?
All time, the Grenadiers de Châteauguay and Phénix du Collège Esther-Blondin have made one appearance each at Canada’s National Midget Championship. Who will earn a second and make the trip west to Moose Jaw?
Which team has won the most National Midget Championships? Which team scored the most goals in a game? How many TELUS Cup alumni have played in the NHL? Get all the answers in the official TELUS Cup Guide & Record Book.
The Oakville Rangers opened the season with seven straight victories, won 16 of their first 17, and closed out their schedule on a 12-game undefeated streak to finish atop the SCTA standings for the second consecutive year.
Make it seven consecutive B.C. Major Midget League regular season titles for the Vancouver NW Giants, although it took until the very last game of the season for the Giants to edge Okanagan by just a single point for first place.
The Notre Dame Argos were the lone SMAAAHL team to reach the 30-win plateau, earning 33 victories in 44 games, and outscored its opposition by a whopping 112 goals, scoring 58 goals more than second-place Battlefords.
The Moncton Flyers and Saint John Vitos finished with identical 24-10-1 records atop the NBPEIMMHL, but Moncton won five of six against Saint John and takes its No. 1-ranked defence into the postseason as the top seed.
The key to first place for the Ajax/Pickering Raiders? That’s simple: the Raiders have not lost a game in three months, going 21-0-3 since Oct. 24, and they outscored the opposition by a whopping 107 goals – 162-55.
What a finish in the Alberta Midget Hockey League; when the dust settled, the top eight teams were separated by just six points, and the Leduc Oil Kings had edged Lloydminster and Red Deer for first place by only one.
Armed with the NLMMHL’s leading scorer, Jordan Maher, and the No. 1-ranked defence, the Central Ice Pak dropped just three games in regulation time and edged the St. John’s Maple Leafs for the league’s regular season title.
After a year away, the Sudbury Nickel Capital Wolves were back on top of the Great North Midget League standings in 2013-14, using a stifling defence to squeeze past North Bay by just three points for first place.
For the first time since 2003-04, the year they won their lone national championship, the Brandon Wheat Kings finished the regular season on top of the MMAAAHL standings, posting 39 wins in 44 games for a four-point cushion.
A 12-game unbeaten streak to close out their schedule and a defence that allowed just 55 goals in 28 games were keys for the OHA Gold Mavericks, who won a down-to-the-wire race with Eastern Ontario to clinch first place.
For the first time since joining the LHMAAAQ in 1997-98, the Commandeurs de Lévis were the league’s top regular season team, using the third-best offence and second-best defence to finish three points up on Esther-Blondin.
Just two points separated first place from fourth in the Alliance this season, but it was the Cambridge Hawks who survived the sprint to the finish, using three winning streaks of at least six games to stake their claim to top spot.
For the second consecutive season the Toronto Young Nationals were the GTHL’s best regular season team, riding the league’s No. 2 offence and a 13-game winning streak to top spot, three points up on Mississauga Rebels.
After a one-year hiatus from first place – and a longer break from the McDonalds name it used when it made three trips to national championship during the 1980s and 1990s – Halifax returned to top spot in the NSMMHL.
