The Contenders: Final Four Teams

Without defending provincial B.C. Senior AA champions, Fort St. John Flyers, in the mix and with none of the Final Four teams ever having won the Coy Cup, this year’s eventual winner will have a spot in the history books.

Host Whitehorse Huskies have had their eye on the Coy Cup since before the season even began and the tone in the locker room has been all business.

This season the Huskies have only played home games, so the ice at Takhini Arena, where all of this week’s games will be played, is familiar territory.

Hanging from the rafters is a championship banner from the 1993 season, when the Huskies won the Allan Cup, the Senior Male National Championship.

The road back to contention hasn’t been easy for the Huskies. Since being rebanded in 2014/15, they’ve made the Coy Cup Final Four once in 2016, but were knocked out by the Flyers in the semifinals.

The Huskies would love to hoist the Coy Cup on home ice, but will have their work cut out for them against the new kids on the block, the Kelowna Sparta, the always the bridesmaid, never the bride, Terrace River Kings, and the revitalized North Island Capitals.

All games will take place at the Takhini Arena. First games of the evening kick off at 4 p.m. and the host Huskies play at 7 p.m. nightly.

The round-robin ends Thursday night with semifinals running Friday at 7 p.m. and finals taking place at 7 p.m. Saturday.

The Huskies start their Coy Cup finals bid against the North Island Capitals tonight. They face the Terrace River Kings on Wednesday night and the Kelowna Sparta Thursday night.

North Island Capitals
Port Hardy, B.C.

This year’s island flavour comes in the form of the North Island Capitals. The Caps are in their second season since reforming after a hiatus. They played in the Coy Cup in the mid 2000s and have been the runner-up before, but have never won.

The Caps were supposed to face the Powell River Regals (who last won the Coy Cup in 2009/10), but the series was cancelled by the Regals at the last minute, allowing the Caps to take a bye into this week’s tournament.

The Capitals open play against the Whitehorse Huskies tonight at 7 p.m. The last time the teams met was in January 2016, when the Huskies swept the series 2-0.

Whitehorse Huskies
Whitehorse, Yukon

The Whitehorse Huskies are finally at full power. The roster, which has been marred with injuries all season is back to what coach Michael Tuton had imagined at the beginning of the season.

Tonight’s game will see the return of captain Evan Campbell, who has been out recovering from a shoulder surgery since the fall.

The hosts of this year’s Coy Cup, the Whitehorse Huskies, had a bye into the Final Four and were 7-1 this season, their only loss coming from the Kelowna Sparta in December.

The Huskies open play tonight at 7 p.m. against the North Island Capitals.

Terrace River Kings
Terrace, B.C.

The River Kings have made the Coy Cup final for the past three years. Each time they’ve been runners-up.

“It’s been pretty disappointing the last few years, but we’re trying to get on the right side of that final game this year,” captain Steve Cullis told CFTK TV last week.

The River Kings enter the Coy Cup Final Four on a high. They beat the 2012/13 and 2013/14 Coy Cup Champions, Williams Lake Stampeders, in a best-of-three series to become Central Interior Hockey League champions and earn their berth this year.

The River Kings open play at 4 p.m. today against the Kelowna Sparta.

Kelowna Sparta
Kelowna, B.C.

A new addition to the league, the Kelowna Sparta are in their first season of B.C. Senior AA hockey.

The Sparta won their berth in the Coy Cup after beating the South Island Knights 9-2, 10-6 in a two-game series.

“We are excited to head to Whitehorse for the Coy Cup and hopefully come home with a championship,” number 17, Kelly Loudoun, told the Vernon Morning Star after the team locked down its Coy Cup Final Four berth.

This will be their third trip to Whitehorse this season.

The Kelowna Sparta open play at 4 p.m. today against the River Kings.
