Memorial Cup 2012

An All Canadian showdown this year as host Shawinigan prepares to challenge for Canadian Major Junior Hockey supremacy.

Sponsored by Master Card, the Memorial Cup brings the champions of the Quebec, Ontario and Western Hockey League to central Quebec this year, as London, Edmonton and St. John seek to ruin the party for host Shawinigan.

Rich in tradition, the Memorial Cup offers up some of the best of hockey in a one week showdown from the top teams in Canada's three junior leagues. After a long hard regular season and then seemingly endless playoff rounds, four teams (three league champs and the host team) emerge from the pack to challenge for the top spot in all of Junior Hockey.

Host--Shawinigan Cataractes
Quebec-- Saint John Sea Dogs
Ontario-- London Knights
Western-- Edmonton Oil Kings

The Full Schedule can be found here, the day by day breakdown is found below.

Sportsnet is host broadcaster for the Memorial Cup with games nightly across the network.
