The Pas' Connor Dewar is Excited for the 2019-2020 NHL Season as a Minnesota Wild

Family and friends were in attendance last night in Winnipeg. The Pas, Manitoba's Connor Dewar was in pre-season action against the Winnipeg Jets last night. Dewar's Wild fell to the Jets 4-1 but it was the 1st of many times (hopefully) he will return to his home province to play.

 

During his second pro development camp last month, Dewar said he was focused on building relationships with potential future teammates as well as using the feedback given to him to aid in his training regimen this summer.

 

Last season Dewar was named captain of his Everett Silvertips team. Dewar paced the Silvertips, who finished the regular season in first place in the U.S. Division, with 81 points in 59 games, ranking seventh in team history and 15th in the WHL. His 36 goals earned him the team's top scorer award and placed 18th in the league. He tacked on an additional five goals and 10 points through nine playoff games, with the Silvertips advancing to the second round of playoffs.

 

 

He can shoot, he can skate, he's got nose for around the net. He's always around the net and getting scoring chances ... he'll be a fun one to watch. this upcoming season.

 

The Wild will be in Winnipeg 2 more times this Regular Season.

Canada's National Junior A Championship will return to its original name – The Centennial Cup

Courtesy of Hockey Canada:   

CALGARY, Alta. – As Canada’s National Junior A Championship prepares to celebrate its 50th anniversary in May in Portage la Prairie, Man., Hockey Canada, in partnership with the CJHL, has announced that Canada’s National Junior A Championship will return to its original name – the Centennial Cup – starting in 2020.

 

“There is a long-standing and deep-rooted history of this event that brings together the top Junior A teams from across the country and we look forward to honouring that history by returning to the event’s original name,” said Dean McIntosh, vice-president of events and properties with Hockey Canada. “For 49 years, hockey fans from across the country have embraced this tournament, and we are excited to officially reintroduce the Centennial Cup in Portage la Prairie in 2020 and celebrate the 50th edition of the event.”

 

The first Centennial Cup was launched in Manitoba. In 1971, the Red Deer Rustlers of the Alberta Junior Hockey League claimed the inaugural championship and Centennial Trophy with a win over the Charlottetown Islanders. The final Centennial Cup was awarded to the Calgary Canucks in 1995, with the tournament being re-named the Royal Bank Cup from 1996 to 2018.

 

“Within the CJHL, we are exceedingly excited about reactivating the Centennial Cup,” said Canadian Junior Hockey League president Brent Ladds. “It represents a cherished memory from our past and will capture the period of the RBC Cup to maintain the history of the road to the National Junior A Championship, which is so important to our members.”

Schedule and ticket information:

 

Hockey Canada also announced schedule and ticket information for the 2020 Centennial Cup, set for May 9-17 at the 1,675-seat Stride Place.

The schedule features 10 preliminary-round games, including the host Portage Terriers’ tournament-opener at 2 p.m. CT on May 9 against the East region champions, along with two semifinals and the championship game. Hockey Canada’s official broadcast partners, TSN and RDS, will broadcast the championship game while all other games will be available via livestream at video.hockeycanada.ca

 

Full-event ticket packages, which include one ticket to all 13 games, can be purchased at HockeyCanada.ca/Tickets for $200 plus applicable fees. As with other Hockey Canada national championships, the net proceeds from all ticket sales remain in the host community of Portage la Prairie to assist with hockey programs that encourage the growth of the game in the city and surrounding communities. Historically, this event has generated more than $2 million in local economic impact.

 

The 2020 National Junior A Championship represents a partnership between Hockey Canada, the Canadian Junior Hockey League, Manitoba Junior Hockey League and Hockey Manitoba.
