The BCHL’s RBC Cup History

The Royal Bank Cup was first presented in 1996 to the BCHL’s Vernon Vipers as they defeated the runner up Melfort Mustangs of the SJHL. Prior to 1996, the winners were awarded the Centennial Cup.

The BCHL leads all of the CJHL 13 National Championships, including the 2016 win by the West Kelowna Warriors. Penticton became the first B.C. team to win a National Jr. A Championship in 1986 and Vernon is the only B.C. club to win more than one. Their six Canadian titles came in 1990, 1991, 1996, 1999, 2009 and 2010. (Prince Albert is the only other team that has won four times). Penticton teams have won twice with the Knights in ’86 and the Vees in 2012.

Since 1983, the BCHL has not gone more than a single season without representation at the RBC/Centennial Cup.

In 2014, the RBC Royal Bank Cup was hosted by the City of Vernon and the Vernon Vipers. The host club made their way to the semifinals at Kal Tire Place but lost to the eventual champion Yorkton Terriers of Saskatchewan.

In 2018, the RBC Cup tournament will come back to B.C. as the Chilliwack Chiefs will play host at Prospera Centre.
