THE QUEEN'S CUP: THE OLDEST UNIVERSITY CUP

Mike Aylward
Monday, March 06, 2006

The Queen's Cup is symbolic of university men's hockey supremacy in the OUA.  The Cup, originating at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, has a long history, dating back more than 100 years.  It was first contested in 1903, having been awarded every year since, except during the two World Wars.

Your Lakehead Thunderwolves made two trips to the old format Queen’s Cup four-team tournament and unfortunately lost both times to the York Lions (2002-03 and 2003-04).  This is the first time Lakehead will ever play for the Queen’s Cup in its five year history and it will also be the first time the Queen’s Cup will be contested for in Thunder Bay.

McGill is the oldest hockey team in the world, now in its 129th season, and the Redmen have won the Queen’s Cup 13 times in their storied history; the last win coming in 1945-46.   

The University of Toronto Varsity Blues hold the record for most Queen's Cup Championships with 41, almost the same number of Cups as all other OUA teams combined (53).
