BC Hockey announced that the Fort St. John Flyers will host the 2019 Senior Male AA Championship, the Coy Cup, will be held from March 26-30, 2019 at the North Peace Arena in Fort St. John, BC.
“The Fort St. John Senior Flyers Hockey Club wishes to thank the BC Hockey Board of Directors for selecting our organization to host the 2019 Coy Cup Senior AA Championship,” says team president, Paul van Nostrand. “The entire Flyers organization, including our executive, sponsors, volunteers and fans are extremely excited to host this prestigious event. The City of Fort St. John has a long history of capably hosting major sporting events, including the 1994 Coy Cup and most recently the World U17 Hockey Challenge. The Flyers will do our very best to uphold that reputation, as we welcome Senior AA teams from across the province to the Energetic City”
Last year, the Dawson Creek Canucks defeated the Kelowna Sparta in the championship game held in Williams Lake.
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.
