Bentley to host Allan Cup

The Bentley Generals will host the 2013 Allan Cup, the national senior AAA men’s championship.

“We had three great bids from Alberta for this event (Bentley, Sylvan Lake and Stony Plain). It was definitely a tough decision and there are no losers here,” said Hockey Alberta’s senior council chairman, Kim Marsh.

“This event is a great opportunity to raise the profile of senior hockey in Alberta and we are very excited to bring this event to our province. We know Bentley will do a first class job and we’re looking forward to 2013.”

“On behalf of our Allan Cup 2013 bid committee and the Bentley Generals Senior Hockey Club we are extremely excited to have the opportunity to showcase the best in senior hockey to our fans, sponsors and central Alberta,” said host committee chairman, Dave Mousseau.

“Bentley has represented Alberta at multiple Allan Cups and we now feel this is a natural progression to host this championship. We look forward to putting on a top notch tournament that will prove why central Alberta is the heartland of Hockey.”

The exact dates for the 2013 Allan Cup have not yet been determined but the event is expected to take place in the later part of April 2013.

The Bentley Generals have competed at the previous five Allan Cup Championships, capturing the cup in 2009 and finishing in second place in 2011, 2010, and 2008.

The Allan Cup was last hosted in Alberta by the Stony Plain Eagles in 2007.
