RBC Cup In Portage

logos rbc cup jun242013

Portage la Prairie's going to host the premier Junior A hockey tournament in Canada in 2015.

It was announced at last night's Portage Terriers AGM Hockey Canada's awarded the RBC Cup tournament to this city -- it'll be at the PCU Centre, and means an automatic berth for the Terriers.

Team President Dale Deschouwer is pleased, particularly because of how long it took to get it, after their 2011 bid wasn't accepted. He adds the PCU Centre was built with this tournament in mind.

Terriers' coach and GM Blake Spiller is looking forward to the tournament, adding he's confident the city will do a great job hosting it, thanks to the experience of other large events.

RBC Cup Committee Co-chair Dave Patsack describes this as super exciting, adding it'll showcase Portage and the PCU Centre to a national audience.
