The Quesnel Kangaroos Hockey Club, our dedicated fans, our sponsors and the City of Quesnel wish to thank the BC Hockey Board of Directors for selecting our organization to host the prestigious Coy Cup," said Team President Tyler Coleman. “Quesnel takes pride in the opportunity to host and participate in major sporting events. The Kangaroos have a long-storied history with the Coy Cup having won it eleven times starting way back in the 1965 - 66 season. We hope to make this year one for the story books and a tournament to remembered."
Last year, the Dawson Creek Canucks defeated the Fort St. John in the championship game held in Fort St. John.
The Coy Cup was donated to BC Hockey by Colonel Coy of the fiftieth “Gordon Highlanders” Regiment of Victoria, BC. It is emblematic of the Senior AA Amateur Hockey Championship of BC Hockey. The first Coy Cup was awarded in the 1922 – 1923 season.
