The 2015 Allan Cup was the 2015 Canadian Grand National Championship of Senior ice hockey and the 107th year the trophy was awarded. The tournament was contended in Clarenville, Newfoundland and Labrador from April 13 to April 18, 2015 and hosted by the Clarenville Caribous. All games were played at the Eastlink Events Centre.[1]

The championship game between the Bentley Generals and South East Prairie Thunder was a rematch of the 2009 final. The Prairie Thunder defeated the Generals by a score of 2-0 to win their second national title.[2]

Information[edit]

This year's Allan Cup was the first played in Newfoundland and Labrador since 1985. It was the third consecutive trip to the Allan Cup for the host Clarenville Caribous, who lost the previous two championship games.

The Atlantic region was awarded Quebec's berth for this year's Allan Cup, in addition to its regular spot. As a result, the champions from the Newfoundland's Central West Senior Hockey League (Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts) and New Brunswick's North East Senior Hockey League (Lameque Au P'tit Mousse) were given automatic berths into the Allan Cup. In Ontario, the OHF and defending Allan Cup champions Dundas Real McCoys defeated Northern Ontario's Kenora Thistles to win the Renwick Cup.[3]

In the West, the South East Prairie Thunder of Manitoba swept the Rathgaber Cup series against Saskatchewan's Rosetown Red Wings to return to the Allan Cup for the sixth time in seven years.[4] British Columbia did not present a team for the McKenzie Cup series, thus allowing Alberta's Chinook Hockey League champion (Bentley Generals) to take the Pacific region uncontested and advance directly to the Allan Cup.[3]

Participants[edit]

  • Defeated Restigouche Nord Vikings 4-1, Lost to Tracadie Alpines 1-4.
