The Terriers held a press conference this afternoon along with the Commissioner of the MJHL representing Hockey Canada to announce the National Championship is coming back to Portage.
Co-chairs Dave Patsack and Dale Deschouwer were on hand along with Terriers President Dave Koroscil to make the announcement.
Portage hosted and won the RBC Cup in front of a packed house in May 2015 and they will get the chance again in 2020.
The Cup’s name may change, but the significance stays the same. The annual tournament determines the Canadian Junior A Champion. Back in 1970 Manitoba donated the Centennial Cup for the first year of the Championship and Hockey Canada thought it was a great idea to return to Manitoba in 2020 for the 50th anniversary of the Championship.
