The Terrace River Kings have been selected as the host of the 2016 Senior Male AAA Championship, the Coy Cup. The Championship will be held in March 2016 at the Terrace Sportsplex.
“We’re looking forward to Terrace hosting this event,” said BC Hockey Adult Male Coordinator Trevor Bast. “The community has shown lots of support for the River Kings in the past, and we’re sure they’ll extend a warm welcome to the other teams that come to compete for the Coy Cup.”
The River Kings play in the Central Interior Hockey League (CIHL), and were CIHL Champions during the 2014-2015 season, but lost the 2015 Coy Cup to the Fort St. John Flyers.
The Coy Cup was donated to BC Hockey by Colonel Coy of the 50th “Gordon Highlanders” Regiment of Victoria, BC. It is emblematic of the Senior AA Amateur Hockey Championship of British Columbia. The first Coy Cup was awarded to the in the 1922-1923 season.
