The 100 Mile House Wranglers of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL) have been named the host team for the 2020 Cyclone Taylor Cup which will take place in April 2020.
The Cyclone Taylor Cup is BC Hockey’s Junior B Championship which features league winners from KIJHL, the Pacific Junior Hockey League (PJHL), the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League (VIJHL) and the host team. The four (4) teams play a round-robin tournament followed by the bronze and gold medal games.
“The 100 Mile House host committee would like to thank BC Hockey for believing in our community and our ability to host the 2020 Cyclone Taylor Cup,” said tournament chair Tom Bachinski. “We have a community full of pride and determination with a clear vision to host the Junior B Championship. Hosting the Cyclone Taylor Cup is a natural progression for our organization and a great honour.”
The Wranglers joined the KIJHL in 2013 and play at the South Cariboo Rec Centre. 100 Mile House won the 2016 Cyclone Taylor Cup, defeating the host team, Victoria Cougars, 5-4 to take the Junior B Championship.
The 2019 Cyclone Taylor Cup takes place April 10-14, 2019 in Campbell River, BC.
