Saskatchewan – Hockey’s Purest Road Trip?

Celebrating A Century of Memorial Cup in Regina

Combine the cross-Canadian appeal of the football’s Grey Cup with the Canadian love for hockey, and throw in a hearty dose of appreciation for Canadian military history, and you have one very Canadian combination. Consider that this combination exists in trophy form, and that said trophy has been hoisted 99 times by Canada’s junior hockey champions, and place the hundredth edition of the storied tournament in the heartland of the country, and you have one epic occasion to celebrate a century of junior hockey in the country.

PNC Park – Pittsburgh Pirates
