Daily Dose of the Dub: Raiders Win Ed Chynoweth Cup

Prince Albert Raiders are WHL Champions

For the second consecutive season, the Ed Chynoweth Cup has been won by a Saskatchewan-based, community-owned team as the Prince Albert Raiders defeated the Vancouver Giants 3-2 in Overtime thanks to a goal from mid-season acquisition and overage forward Dante Hannoun. This is the first time the WHL Championship has been won in overtime since the Seattle Thunderbirds defeated the Regina Pats 4-3 in overtime of Game Six of the 2017 WHL Final. The Medicine Hat Tigers were the last team to win the Ed Chynoweth Cup in Overtime of Game 7 prior to tonight defeating the Giants 3-2 in double overtime of Game 7.

The Raiders will now head to Halifax as they’ve clinched their spot in the 2019 Memorial Cup which will kick off on Friday. The Raiders will face the host Mooseheads, the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies (QMJHL Champion) and the Guelph Storm (OHL Champion) in the tournament to decide Canada’s best major junior hockey team.
