WOODSTOCK - The MHL announced Thursday that the hosting rights for the 2016 Fred Page Cup have been awarded to the Woodstock Slammers.
The Slammers winning bid for the Eastern Canadian Junior A Hockey Championship was one of three presented to the MHL at a Board of Governors meeting held in Amherst last Saturday.
The Amherst Ramblers and Summerside Western Capitals also submitted bids.
“It was felt that all teams were capable of hosting the event and that (the winning bid) would come down to merit and detail of presentation,” said MHL president Derryl Smith. “After deliberating, it was felt by the group that Woodstock had a stronger overall presentation. As well, the committee looked at the team, divisions and the league overall and concluded that Woodstock would be awarded the right to host the 2016 Fred Page Cup.”
