“Fredericton, NB – Due to the ongoing global pandemic, the four Atlantic Branches (Hockey New Brunswick, Hockey Newfoundland Labrador, Hockey Nova Scotia, and Hockey Prince Edward Island) have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Atlantic Challenge Cup, which was to be hosted in Moncton, NB from October 9-12, 2020.

The health and safety of all Canadians during this time is of the utmost importance to the Atlantic Branches. Together we have determined that during this time of uncertainty, cancelling this year’s event is in the best interest of all involved. We look forward to hosting the event again in 2021.

We will get through this together and we look forward to getting back in the hockey rink.

– Hockey NB, Hockey NS, Hockey NL, & Hockey PEI

The ACC is an event that Hockey PEI’s High Performance Program U14 & U15 male teams and U16 & U18 female teams compete in annually.
