The Western Hockey League in partnership with NHL Seattle and Visit Kent announced today the schedule for the inaugural WHL U.S. Challenge Cup — a premier tournament for Bantam AAA hockey teams in the Western United States, which will be held in Kent, Washington February 20-23, 2020.
The Seattle Junior 14U Admirals, a Seattle Junior cooperative team managed by Seattle Junior that features players from all over the Greater Seattle Area including several from Sno-King, will be the home team at the tournament and they are determined to represent their team and the region very well. The team features and will be looking to build upon the 2019 WHL Bantam Draft, which saw a pair of players from Washington state selected.
The inaugural edition of the tournament will feature 12 of the top-ranked Bantam teams from the Western United States and Canada.
A full schedule of the 18 round-robin games for the WHL U.S. Challenge Cup is available here. Beginning Friday, February 21, each team will play a three-game round-robin schedule, with games hosted at the Accesso ShoWare Center – home of the WHL’s Seattle Thunderbirds – and the Kent Valley Ice Centre.
Teams will be ranked from first to 12th, setting the stage for final placement games on Sunday, February 23. The championship game at the inaugural WHL U.S. Challenge Cup will be held Sunday, February 23 (1 p.m. PT) at the Accesso ShoWare Center.
As part of the WHL U.S. Challenge Cup experience, participating teams will be given a first-hand look at the WHL player experience as they attend a WHL regular season contest between the Thunderbirds and visiting Portland Winterhawks on Saturday night.
