Potential for two Coy Cup wild card spots

There might still be hockey left for two CIHL teams, given the Smithers Steelheads’ decision to skip this year’s Coy Cup, and the hosting Kitimat Ice Demons automatically qualifying for Coy Cup regardless of their playoff performance.

After playoffs, any of these “possible” spots that come available will be filled by a selection of the non-playoff qualifying team with the highest number of regular season points, followed by the next highest, said a notice on the CIHL’s website.

First-ranked team Smithers has declined to participate this year citing the fact that there are no non-CIHL teams participating.

The tournament will be held in Kitimat during the week of March 12 – 16.
