MOOSE JAW, Sask. – Hockey Canada announced Tuesday the schedule for the 2014 TELUS Cup, which will be held at Mosaic Place in Moose Jaw, Sask., from April 21-27, 2014.

The TELUS Cup, Canada’s National Midget Championship, will return to Saskatchewan for just the third time in the tournament’s 41 years, with Moose Jaw joining Regina (1985) and Prince Albert (1999) as host cities.

The tournament kicks off April 21 with three games, including the host Moose Jaw Generals taking on the Atlantic Region champions. This year’s TELUS Cup will be the first-ever appearance at the national championship for Moose Jaw.

The gold medal game will be held April 27 at 3 p.m. CT and will be shown on TSN/RDS, Hockey Canada’s official broadcasters. All preliminary round games, both semifinals and the bronze medal game will be available through webcast at www.hockeycanada.ca/teluscup.  

“As a result of the amazing level of dedication and volunteer hours by the members of our host committee, we could not be more excited to be the host community for the 2014 TELUS Cup,” said Chris Aparicio, co-chair of the 2014 TELUS Cup host committee. “We are very grateful to have this opportunity to showcase Moose Jaw and have the opportunity to host a most memorable experience for the players, coaches, fans and certainly our generous sponsors.”  

“On behalf of the SHA Board of Directors and membership, we are extremely proud to see the City of Moose Jaw, Moose Jaw Generals, Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League and Province of Saskatchewan host the TELUS Cup,” said Kelly McClintock, general manager of the Saskatchewan Hockey Association. “We want to thank the countless volunteers in Moose Jaw for making this event possible, and sincerely hope everyone from outside the province experiences our prairie hospitality.”

Hockey Canada also announced that Team Canada and Canada’s National Midget Championship alumnus Morgan Rielly will be the event ambassador. Rielly, who is in his rookie season with the NHL’s Toronto Maple Leafs and has represented Canada at the under-17, under-18 and under-20 levels, helped the Notre Dame Hounds win a gold medal at the 2010 TELUS Cup. He played his junior hockey in Moose Jaw with the Western Hockey League’s Moose Jaw Warriors.

Full-tournament ticket packages, including all 19 games, are now on sale for $75 (plus applicable fees). For more information on tickets, including how to purchase, CLICK HERE.
