Allan Cup YearsEdit

Canadian university teams formerly competed for the Allan Cup against senior teams. The Cup was won by Queen's University in 1909 and St. Michael's College in 1910 (both during the "challenge" period) and then by the University of Toronto in 1921 and by the University of Manitoba in 1928 through "normal" channels. That U of M team then won the IIHF World Championship in 1931. The links include the years in which university teams reached the Allan Cup final.
