Flames Prospect Glenn Gawdin and the Swift Current Broncos season picks back up today in the prestigious Memorial Cup, a tournament held annually to determine the winner of the Canadian Hockey League.
It is a four-team round robin tournament played between the host team and the winners of the three league members Ontario Hockey League (OHL), Quebec Major Junior League (QMJL) and the Western Hockey League (WHL), and this year’s trophy will crown the 100th CHL Champion in the history of the tournament.
Gawdin and his Broncos battled the QMJHL Champions, Acadie-Bathurst Titan on Saturday and fell in overtime 4-3, before being bested by the Bulldogs on Monday night by a 2-1 final. The Broncos are set to battle the host team, the Regina Pats, on Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. PST.
If needed, there will be a tie-Breaker Game slated for Thursday May 24 at 5:00 p.m. while the Semi-Finals will be played on Friday May 25 at 7:00 p.m. followed by the 100th Memorial Cup Championship being handed out during the Final on Sunday May 27 at 4:00 p.m. PST.
The last Flames prospect to win the Memorial Cup was Tyler Parsons, who won the Cup in 2016 with the London Knights of the OHL. The American goaltender told Heat TV earlier this season that is top hockey memory, ranking above winning the goal medal in the World Junior Tournament two years ago.
