25th Annual Atlantic Challenge Cup Wrap-Up


Moncton, NB - The 25th Anniversary of the Atlantic Challenge Cup concluded this afternoon in Moncton, New Brunswick and it was another tremendous success.  The event had everything that a hockey fan would want to see and all games were very well attended by parents, the general public and a large number of scouts who took in games over the four days.

“This was another display of the talent which Atlantic Canada has to offer to the hockey world," stated Louis Gaudet, Host Committee Chairperson.  "After the 2020 and 2021 events were cancelled due to COVID-19, it was great to see the event being held again, and an opportunity for the top players from across Atlantic Canada to compete against each other. The event showed the type of talent that we have in our region.  Our players keep raising the bar each year and it is a sign that there are a lot of great things happening in the four Atlantic hockey branches.”
