The Doyle Cup is a ice hockey trophy won through a best-of-7 series conducted annually by the Canadian Junior Hockey League. The series is played between the Fred Page Cup champions of the British Columbia Hockey League and the Enerflex Cup champions of the Alberta Junior Hockey League; the winner of the Doyle Cup earns the Pacific region's berth in the National Junior A Championship. The playoff series has been contested since 1971, except from 2013 to 2017 when it was replaced by the Western Canada Cup; the current trophy was donated in 1984 by Pete Doyle, a Penticton, British Columbia businessman, replacing the Pacific Centennial Cup that two leagues competed for from 1971 to 1984. The Pacific region's Doyle Cup Champion traditionally played the Western region's ANAVET Cup champion for the Abbott Cup, the Western Canadian Championship. However, the Abbott Cup diminished in importance following the reorganization of the national championship in 1990; the Abbott Cup was presented to the winner of the round-robin game, between the Pacific champion and Western champion, during the larger Royal Cup competition.

Hockey Alberta is the governing body of all ice hockey in Alberta, Canada and is affiliated with Hockey Canada. It was founded in 1907 as the Alberta Amateur Hockey Association to be the governing body for Alberta intra-city ice hockey play; as of the 2018–19 hockeyL season, the Chair of the Board of Directors was Terry Engen, the Chief Executive Officer for operations management was Rob Litwinski. Hockey had been played for over 10 years before Alberta was proclaimed a province in 1905. Play took place on friendly basis; as teams developed, a need developed for a governing body to administer the game at a provincial level for intra-city games. At a November 29, 1907 meeting in Red Deer, the Alberta Amateur Hockey Association was founded, with R. N. Brown elected as the first president of the organization. In 1914, the AAHA would be one of the founding associations for the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association, formed at meetings held on December 4, 1914 in the Chateau Laurier at Ottawa. In 2007, the centennial of the association was celebrated with the hosting of the Allan Cup in Stony Plain.
In 1907 senior amateur hockey was organized into two tiers. This "A" level was only technically amateur. A second "B" level was formed, "pure amateur." In the 1907-08 season, the Edmonton Hockey Club would win the Alberta "A" championship and challenge the Montreal Wanderers for the Stanley Cup. While Calgary was larger than Edmonton at the time of the AAHA founding, the Calgary associations declined to participate until joining the Senior "A" league in 1910; the Calgary Shermans, named for their rink, were the first team from Calgary. In 1910, Edmonton would again challenge for this time against the Ottawa Senators; this would be the last challenge for the Stanley Cup from AAHA teams. After the founding of the professional National Hockey Association, Canada's amateur senior teams would compete for the Allan Cup, which they do to this day. For more information, see Big-4 League. In 1919, under the guidance of AAHA league president Allan McCaw, a new elite senior amateur league was established in Alberta with two teams each in Calgary and Edmonton.
The league's intention was to compete for the Allan Cup, emblematic of Canada's national senior championship. The Tigers were created, along with the Canadians to represent Calgary, while the Edmonton Eskimos and Dominions represented Alberta's capital; the Calgary teams were hosted at the Victoria Arena, converted into a hockey rink in 1918. While the Big Four League billed itself as an amateur circuit, it became known as a notorious example of a "shamateur" league, as amateur teams secretly employed professional players in an attempt to gain an upper hand on their competition; when the Big Four announced their intention to compete in the Allan Cup playdowns, the Pacific Coast Hockey Association sent a letter of protest to the Canadian Hockey Association, demanding that the league be declared professional, thus ineligible to compete for the Allan Cup. The CHA agreed, stripped the league of its amateur standing after only one season; the controversy continued to haunt the Big Four in its second season.
Repeated accusations were made by teams against their opponent's star players, accusing them of being pros. An accusation against the Eskimos' goaltender, Bill Tobin by the two Calgary teams led both to threaten to pull out of the league. While Tobin was vindicated, the threats led the league to suspend operations, formally canceling the championship; the Tigers and Eskimos, agreed to play their own playoff, known as the Intercity Championship. The Tigers defeated the Eskimos in a two-game, total goal series, but the Big Four League was finished. After the Big Four League disbanded and the Tigers and Eskimos formed the professional Western Canada Hockey League, the AAHA could concentrate on true amateur play. Various senior leagues have existed since 1921, teams such as the Calgary Stampeders and Edmonton Flyers have played for and won the Allan Cup. Alberta junior teams played against Saskatchewan Hockey Association teams to qualify for the Memorial Cup dating back to 1919; the first Alberta junior team to qualify for the Memorial Cup Finals was the Calgary Canadians in 1924.
The Canadians would win the Memorial Cup in 1926. Like the rest of Canada, the junior leagues have developed into various tiers as the number of teams and popularity of ice hockey has grown. Today the CHL's Western Hockey League is the top junior level league operating in Alberta. Hockey Alberta operates the Alberta Junior Hockey League, formed in 1963.

Quebec Junior Hockey League
The Ligue de Hockey Junior du Québec or Quebec Junior Hockey League is a Hockey Québec Canadian Junior A ice hockey league and is a member of Hockey Canada and the Canadian Junior Hockey League. The winner of the QJHL playoffs competes for the Fred Page Cup against the winners of the Central Junior A Hockey League and the Maritime Hockey League and the host team, on a three-year cycle between the MHL, CJHL and LHJAAAQ; the winner of the Fred Page Cup moves on to compete for the Royal Bank Cup. The Quebec Junior Hockey League is an offshoot of the Quebec Junior A Hockey League that lasted from 1972-1982. Founded in 1988, the QJHL has been a rather strong league with 3 Central Canadian Champions in its early years: the Longueuil Sieurs in 1990 and the Chateauguay Elites in 1993 and 1994. In 1994-95 they were grouped into the Eastern Canadian region to compete for the Fred Page Cup; the Joliette Nationals won the first Fred Page Cup in 1995. To this day, the QJHL has 4 Eastern Canadian titles, the others going to the Joliette Action, Lennoxville Cougars, St. Jerome Panthers.
No Quebec team has won the national title despite attending the tournament 7 times since 1988. In 2002-03, Champlain College Lennoxville got a team to play in the LHJAAAQ - Lennoxville Cougars, based on the campus of College Champlain and Bishops University; the Cougars, who were coached by former NHLer Stéphane Lebeau formed a discipline style of hockey. The method paid off, Lennoxville captured the Napa Cup as league champions and won the Fred Page Cup. Lennoxville finished the Royal Bank Cup 1-3, the Cougars exited the tournament with a semi-finals loss to the Camrose Kodiaks of the AJHL. In 2003-04, the CJAHL and the LHJAAAQ saw. However, the Gladiateurs lost the finals to the Valleyfield Braves in the finals; because Valleyfield was hosting the Fred Page Cup, the Gladiateurs got a berth in the tournament. Despite that Saint-Eustache held a 2-0, along with Valleyfield, who held a 2-0 record coming into the pivotal all-LHJAAAQ matchup, which would decide the winner, who gets a bye to the championship finals.
Valleyfield won the tilt 4-0, Saint-Eustache lost to the Nepean Raiders 3-2 in double-overtime. The Valleyfield Braves would lose the championship game 4-0 to Nepean. Despite losing the Saint-Félicien Multiconcessionnaire in the summer of 2009; the QJAAAHL has done the opposite of the Quebec Junior A Hockey League. From 1972 until 1982, the QJAHL started big but fell apart; the QJAAAHL, as well, started off big but through picking financially feasible markets and making smart relocations when the times have needed them, the QJAAAHL has maintained its size and success as a Junior A league. The only thing that has eluded the QJAAAHL is the Royal Bank Cup; the 2014 off-season was a busy one for the hockey league. At the annual AGM, 12 year president Richard Morency announced his resignation, but staying on until the transition to the new leadership; the league announced that it was re-branding itself the Quebec Junior Hockey League and introduced the corresponding new league logo. The summer saw the return of the Valleyfield Braves to the League.
Owners of the team purchased the LaTuque Wolves, regained rights to the Braves name and logo and brought the team back to the Aréna Salaberry. Another long-time QJHL member, Kahnawake Condors, who were established in 1999 moved to Chambly, Quebec to be re-branded as the Chambly Forts. Shortly after that move, the Gatineau Mustangs of the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League made the jump to the league, becoming the first Hull-based team since the Aylmer Extreme, who only lasted one season in 2000-01; the Mustangs will be forced to change their name, in favor of the Vaudreuil-Dorion Mustangs, who have been members of the league since 2003. With the folding of the Saint-Hyacinthe Lauréats and the Sherbrooke Cougars the 2015-16 season, will see the league split into two divisions. Several weeks after announcing the Gatineau Flames as a member, the Flames purchased the Lachine Maroons and absorbed the franchise rights; the most-notable move, was the league expelling the Sherbrooke Cougars because the league considered them as a college team and had ties to Bishop's University.
The Saint-Hyacinthe Laureats withdrew from the league in conjunction with the Cougars. The Quebec Junior Hockey League has yet to explore the Northern Quebec market, but distance is a factor for teams in Eastern and Southern Quebec. Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec remains open, as well as Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu. Rural communities in Northern New York and Maine, are a possibility for American markets, but unlikely as the league has never had any teams based in the United States. Since its inception in 1988, the Quebec Junior Hockey League has taken over relocated former Quebec Major Junior Hockey League markets, who have relocated, such as Granby, Saint-Hyacinthe, Sherbrooke, St-Jean and Laval. For the Eastern Regional playoffs, please go to the Fred Page Cup. For the national championship, please go to the 2014 Royal Bank Cup. Kahnawake Condors - 2015 relocated to Chambly Forts L'Extreme D'Aylmer - folded after 2000-01 season Lachine Maroons - 2015 relocate to Gatineau Flames La Tuque Wolves - renewed Valleyfield Braves franchise Les Husky de Cowansville - folded after 1999-00 season Le National de Joliette - ceased operations mid-season Le Junior Canadiens de Montreal - folded after 1999-00 season Les Dragons de Saint-Hyacinthe - folded after 1999-00 season Les Chevaliers de St-Jean - folded after 2001-02 season Saint-Félicien Multiconcessionnaire - folded after 2008-09 season Saint-Hyacinthe Lauréats - 2015 withdrew from leagu

Quebec is one of the thirteen provinces and territories of Canada. It is bordered to the west by the province of Ontario and the bodies of water James Bay and Hudson Bay. S. states of Maine, New Hampshire and New York. It shares maritime borders with Nunavut, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia. Quebec is Canada's largest province by its second-largest administrative division, it is and politically considered to be part of Central Canada. Quebec is the second-most populous province of Canada, after Ontario, it is the only one to have a predominantly French-speaking population, with French as the sole provincial official language. Most inhabitants live in urban areas near the Saint Lawrence River between Montreal and Quebec City, the capital. Half of Quebec residents live in the Greater Montreal Area, including the Island of Montreal. English-speaking communities and English-language institutions are concentrated in the west of the island of Montreal but are significantly present in the Outaouais, Eastern Townships, Gaspé regions.
The Nord-du-Québec region, occupying the northern half of the province, is sparsely populated and inhabited by Aboriginal peoples. The climate around the major cities is four-seasons continental with cold and snowy winters combined with warm to hot humid summers, but farther north long winter seasons dominate and as a result the northern areas of the province are marked by tundra conditions. In central Quebec, at comparatively southerly latitudes, winters are severe in inland areas. Quebec independence debates have played a large role in the politics of the province. Parti Québécois governments held referendums on sovereignty in 1980 and 1995. Although neither passed, the 1995 referendum saw the highest voter turnout in Quebec history, at over 93%, only failed by less than 1%. In 2006, the House of Commons of Canada passed a symbolic motion recognizing the "Québécois as a nation within a united Canada". While the province's substantial natural resources have long been the mainstay of its economy, sectors of the knowledge economy such as aerospace and communication technologies and the pharmaceutical industry play leading roles.
These many industries have all contributed to helping Quebec become an economically influential province within Canada, second only to Ontario in economic output. The name "Québec", which comes from the Algonquin word kébec meaning "where the river narrows" referred to the area around Quebec City where the Saint Lawrence River narrows to a cliff-lined gap. Early variations in the spelling of the name included Kébec. French explorer Samuel de Champlain chose the name Québec in 1608 for the colonial outpost he would use as the administrative seat for the French colony of New France; the province is sometimes referred to as "La belle province". The Province of Quebec was founded in the Royal Proclamation of 1763 after the Treaty of Paris formally transferred the French colony of Canada to Britain after the Seven Years' War; the proclamation restricted the province to an area along the banks of the Saint Lawrence River. The Quebec Act of 1774 expanded the territory of the province to include the Great Lakes and the Ohio River Valley and south of Rupert's Land, more or less restoring the borders existing under French rule before the Conquest of 1760.
The Treaty of Paris ceded territories south of the Great Lakes to the United States. After the Constitutional Act of 1791, the territory was divided between Lower Canada and Upper Canada, with each being granted an elected legislative assembly. In 1840, these become Canada East and Canada West after the British Parliament unified Upper and Lower Canada into the Province of Canada; this territory was redivided into the Provinces of Quebec and Ontario at Confederation in 1867. Each became one of the first four provinces. In 1870, Canada purchased Rupert's Land from the Hudson's Bay Company and over the next few decades the Parliament of Canada transferred to Quebec portions of this territory that would more than triple the size of the province. In 1898, the Canadian Parliament passed the first Quebec Boundary Extension Act that expanded the provincial boundaries northward to include the lands of the local aboriginal peoples; this was followed by the addition of the District of Ungava through the Quebec Boundaries Extension Act of 1912 that added the northernmost lands of the Inuit to create the modern Province of Quebec.
In 1927, the border between Quebec and Newfoundland and Labrador was established by the British Judicial Committee of the Privy Council. Quebec disputes this boundary. Located in the eastern part of Canada, part of Central Canada, Quebec occupies a territory nearly three times the size of France or Texas, most of, sparsely populated, its topography is different from one region to another due to the varying composition of the ground, the climate, the proximity to water. The Saint Lawrence Lowland and the Appalachians are the two main topographic regions in southern Quebec, while the Canadian Shield occupies most of central and northern Quebec. Quebec has one of the world's largest reserves of fresh water, occupying 12% of its surface, it has 3 % of the world's renewable fresh water. Mor
Dudley Hewitt Cup
The Dudley Hewitt Cup is a championship ice hockey trophy awarded to the Central Canadian Junior A Champion. The trophy is decided by round robin tournament format, at the conclusion of the playoffs of the Ontario Junior Hockey League, Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League, Superior International Junior Hockey League, to determine the central seed to the Royal Bank Cup; the Royal Bank Cup is the Canadian National Junior A Championship and is only competed for by teams within the Canadian Junior Hockey League. The current format includes the champions of the OJHL, NOJHL, SIJHL and a pre-selected host city, but in the past has included the champions of the Central Canada Hockey League, Quebec Junior Hockey League, the champion of the Callaghan Cup; the trophy is named after two pioneers of amateur hockey in Ontario. From 1984 until 1995, the Thunder Bay Flyers of the United States Hockey League competed for the Dudley Hewitt Cup the most successful competition in the event's history with 4 titles in 12 years.
The 2002 Dudley Hewitt Cup marked a new chapter in Ontario hockey history. Since the mid-1990s, the OPJHL and NOJHL had squared off in a head-to-head series to determine the Central Canadian seed in the Royal Bank Cup. In 2001, a new Thunder Bay-area league, called the Superior International Junior Hockey League, was founded. Late in the 2001–02 season of the OPJHL and NOJHL, the CJAHL informed them that instead of a series, the Dudley would be competed for through a round-robin format; the NOJHL and OPJHL decided to protest the new format by boycotting the Dudley Hewitt Cup, but without the OPJHL's governors knowledge, the heads of the NOJHL and SIJHL worked out a backroom deal that they would compete for the Cup without the OPJHL's involvement. The NOJHL's Rayside-Balfour Sabrecats swept SIJHL's Dryden Ice Dogs, while the OPJHL's Brampton Capitals sat at home with no avenue for advancement; the subterfuge by the NOJHL led to an agreement in 2003 to allow the championship to be played in a round-robin style.
It marked the end of any dominance the NOJHL had at the interleague level as no NOJHL champion won the DHC from 2002 until 2012. The 2011 Dudley Hewitt Cup made history as for the first time at the interleague level, more than one American team would be in direct contention for the Central Canadian Crown; the 2011 round robin will feature the Wisconsin Wilderness of the Superior International Junior Hockey League and the Soo Eagles of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League. In 1971, the Detroit Jr. Red Wings of the Southern Ontario Junior A Hockey League lost the inaugural championship in six games to the Charlottetown Islanders. In 1973, the St. Paul Vulcans of the Can-Am Junior Hockey League were mowed down by the Pembroke Lumber Kings in the Central semi-final. In 2007, the Soo Indians of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League finished last in the round robin. At that point, no American team had made it to either the Centennial Cup or Royal Bank Cup round robin or final series; this changed on May 4, 2013 when the SIJHL's Minnesota Wilderness defeated the OJHL's St. Michael's Buzzers 4-3 in overtime to win the Dudley and gain entry into the 2013 Royal Bank Cup.
Beforehand, the City of Sudbury and the Sudbury Cubs were slated to host the 2013 tournament, but was soon allocated to the City of North Bay and the North Bay Trappers because the Cubs owners backed out. The 2014 Dudley Hewitt Cub saw its fourth all-Ontario Junior Hockey League Dudley-Hewitt Cup final between the Wellington Dukes and the Toronto Lakeshore Patriots. Toronto won 2–1 advancing to the Royal Bank Cup in Vernon, British Columbia leaving the hosts Wellington Dukes at home; the City of Sudbury and the Sudbury Nickel Barons were awarded the 2016 Dudley Hewitt Cup, but in the spring of 2015 the city and the Nickel Barons backed out again, as a result of the Sudbury Nickel Barons moving to Rayside-Balfour. The tournament was awarded to Kirkland Lake and the Kirkland Lake Gold Miners; the 2017 Dudley Hewitt Cup was awarded to Trenton - the same year the Royal Bank Cup was being hosted by the OJHL's Cobourg Cougars. The Trenton Golden Hawks became the 9th different OJHL team to win the Dudley Hewitt Cup since 2003.
The Aurora Tigers, Oakville Blades, the Wellington Dukes won the tournament twice. As of 2016, the Soo Thunderbirds appeared in their sixth tournament since 2004; the Dryden and the Dryden Ice Dogs of the Superior International Junior Hockey League hosts the 2018 Dudley Hewitt Cup. The 2019 edition of the Dudley Hewitt Cup will be hosted in Cochrane, Ontario, of the NOJHL, after the Cochrane Crunch and the Timmins Rock were the only teams to submit bids. In early January 2019,the Wellington Dukes were awarded the 2020 Dudley-Hewitt Cup tournament, but shortly afterwards, Hockey Canada levied sanctions against the OJHL for trades made after the January 10 deadline; the OJHL was fined $50,000 and were banned from hosting the Dudley-Hewitt Cup and Royal Bank Cup tournaments for a period of five years. The Copeland-NcNamara Trophy champions of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League, the Salonen Cup champion from the Superior International Junior Hockey League and the winner of the Ontario Hockey Association's Buckland Cup and the Ontario Junior Hockey League compete in a round robin hosted by a predetermined host team and city to determine the Central Canadian Champion.
The winner of the Dudley Hewitt Cup moves on to compete for the Royal Bank Cup Junior A national championship. Hosts from the OJHL, NOJHL and SIJHL go through a selection process with teams and centres bidding on the job of host. X = Clinched championship round berth. Dudley Hewi
