The Athol Murray Trophy is a Canadian ice hockey series to determine the Saskatchewan Junior B championship and seed of the Keystone Cup - the Western Canada Junior "B" Hockey Crown.

HistoryEdit

Since the 1960s the tournament has been an important determining factor in the crowning of the Western Canadian champion. Since the Keystone Cup's inception in 1983, Saskatchewan teams have been the champion a leading 9 times. In some ways, the winning of the Saskatchewan Provincials may directly or indirectly determine the outcome of the Keystone Cup. The Championship has run every year since 1965, but the first ever Saskatchewan Junior "B" Champion seems to have been the Saskatoon Westleys in 1951.

Throughout the 1990s and early 2000s, the North Saskatchewan Junior B Hockey League and South Saskatchewan Junior B Hockey League played off for the Murray Trophy. Since 2007 the two leagues have been merged as the Prairie Junior Hockey League.
