Terrace River Kings looking at bid for 2016 Coy Cup

Hockey fans in the Northwest may not have to make plans for a lengthy road trip to take in this season's Coy Cup championship, that if the Terrace River Kings are successful in their bid to host the AA Senior Men's Championship next March.

The River Kings have presented a request for a letter of support from the City of Terrace towards their efforts, a request that the Terrace council will consider as part of their regular Council session this evening.

Ray Hallock of the River Kings will expand on the request and answer any questions from Council members when he makes a presentation to Terrace Council during this evening's session.

Should the River Kings find success with their quest to those the tournament, 4 teams from across the province would take part in the tournament, along with the River Kings who would be the host five team event over a week in March.

Last years tournament was held in Fort Nelson, with the River Kings, the CIHL champs, coming up a bit short, as the Coy Cup championship was eventually won by the Fort St. John Flyers

The River Kings are ready to hit the ice at full stride in their efforts to secure the Coy Cup for next year, with a committee already in place to begin tournament preparation should Terrace be selected as host community.

It's expected that BC Hockey will announce its host city for the 2016 Coy Cup sometime in early October.

The Prince Rupert Rampage will be starting their quest this weekend to become one of the teams to be playing on the ice at the Coy Cup wherever it is held in March.

The Rampage launch the 2015-16 CIHL season this weekend, with a Saturday match up with Williams Lake in town on Saturday night with a puck drop at 7 PM.

Sunday the Quesnel Kangaroos are in town for a 1 PM start with the Rampage.

You can follow the Rampage through the season from our archive page found here.
