More than 140 CHL alumnus to compete for U Sports University Cup

More than 140 CHL alumnus will compete for the U Sports University Cup later this week that will be held in Charlottetown, PEI.

Former players from the OHL, QMJHL and WHL will suit up for eight teams in a straight elimination tournament that opens Thursday.

UQTR, the defending University Cup champions, will face Saint Mary’s in the first quarterfinal while Concordia will battle UNB shortly after. On Friday, Alberta and Windsor will square off while the day will conclude with the host UPEI Panthers against Calgary.

The Dinos are the tournament’s top seed after they claimed the Canada West crown for the first time since 1995-96. Ontario University Athletics (OUA) champions UQTR are seeded second while perennial contender UNB are ranked third after they won another Atlantic University Sport (AUS) championship.

OUA finalists Windsor are ranked fourth followed by Canada West finalists Alberta.

Concordia, the bronze medallists from the OUA, are seeded sixth while AUS runner-ups SMU are ranked seventh. Hosts UPEI complete the field as the eighth seed.

All eight games from the competition will be webcast live on CBC Sports digital platforms (English) and (French). The full schedule will be available throughout the tournament at

The CHL provides a year’s worth of tuition to a post secondary establishment in Canada or the U.S. for each year a player has played in either the OHL, QMJHL or WHL. With more than $83 million being fed into the education system on behalf of current and graduate players over the course of the scholarship, the CHL continues to be one of the largest provider of scholarships in North America.

More than 15,000 CHL graduates have enrolled in various post secondary institutions across North America while many have continued their hockey careers in U Sports programs across Canada.
