Major 2011 Memorial Cup Hosts.

The CHL announced today that Mississauga will host the 2011 Mastercard Memorial Cup. The release is here.

A lot of people were thinking Windsor was going to get it, but that would mean 3 straight years for the Spitfires and I think that works against them. It's a pretty great recruiting advantage. The Majors had a good regular season finishing 5th overall and losing out to Barrie in the OHL's Eastern Conference final.

As for this year's tournament, the 3 billet family finalists have been announced. One will be very familiar to Edmonton and WHL fans. Read that release here.

Also I know a lot of people in Manitoba are excited about the re dedication ceremony that will take place at CFB Shilo. Here's another way the host committee is involving the Military.

Tomorrow night Guy and I will welcome representatives from all 4 participating teams, as well as continue our look ahead to the 2010 NHL draft. for details.
