The Campbell River Storm of the Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League (VIJHL) has been named the host team for the 2019 Cyclone Taylor Cup which will take place in April 2019.
The Cyclone Taylor Cup is BC Hockey’s Junior B Championship which features league winners from the Kootenay International Hockey League (KIJHL), the Pacific Junior Hockey League (PJHL), the VIJHL and the host team. The four (4) teams play a round-robin tournament followed by the bronze and gold medal games.
“Campbell River will be an excellent host for the 2019 Cyclone Taylor Cup,” says Phil Iddon, BC Hockey’s Junior Coordinator. “The Storm have proven to be a premier Junior B franchise in BC, due to their recent successes and the fact they have tremendous community support. The Storm are very deserving to be the host of this championship.”
"The Campbell River Storm are extremely pleased and count it a privilege to be named host of the Cyclone Taylor Cup for 2019,” said Wes Roed, Governor of the Storm. “This is not only a windfall for the Storm but also for our fans, our fantastic sponsors and the Campbell River community. Ultimately though, this is about the players, and we look forward to putting on an event that they will remember for a lifetime."
The Storm are the 2017-2018 VIJHL champions and will be competing in the 2018 Cyclone Taylor Cup along with the Delta Ice Hawks (PJHL), Kimberley Dynamiters (KIJHL) and the Richmond Sockeyes (host). The tournament gets underway April 12, 2018 in Richmond BC. Next season will be the fifth straight time the Storm will compete at the Cyclone Taylor Cup, winning in 2015. Beaver Valley (KIJHL) won the 2017 Cyclone Taylor Cup.
