Saint John Will Not Host The 2012 Memorial Cup

It's disappointment all around for hockey fans here in the city: Shawinigan has gotten the nod to host the 2012 Memorial Cup.

Chair of the Saint John Memorial Committe John Travis tells CHSJ News the economic spinoffs would have been huge.

Meanwhile, Sea Dogs President Wayne Long says he is confident we had the best bid and exceeded all the key criteria like facilities and logistics.

Long would not say whether the group will re-offer for hosting duties in 2015, only that his goal right now is to take home the President's Cup.
