Veitch Memorial Trophy.jpg

The Veitch Memorial Trophy is the Grand Championship of Junior hockey in the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador. It is normally only contested if there is more than one champion in the province. Since 1980, the St. John's Junior Hockey League has ran every year, but some years the Veitch Memorial Trophy has gone uncontested due to the lack of a second stable competitor league.

History[edit | edit source]

The trophy is named after Cyril Veitch a former executive of the Newfoundland Amateur Hockey Association.

In the mid-1970s, Junior hockey in Newfoundland was granted Junior A classification. The winner of the Veitch Memorial Trophy was granted the right to represent Newfoundland in the Centennial Cup playdowns. Since the early 1980s, the winner of the Veitch Memorial Trophy is granted the right to play in the Don Johnson Cup to determine the Atlantic Junior B champion.
