Missouri Hockey Youth Division has partnered with the St Louis Blues and together will transition the State Championship Tournament (SCT) into what will now be called THE BLUE NOTE CUP going forward.
With the help of the Blues, Missouri Hockey will be developing a large cup/trophy (The Blue Note Cup) which will be awarded on the ice to the Champions of each division.
The Blue Note Cup will be the ultimate reward for youth hockey. The cup will serve as the source, much like Stanley's version, of competitive drive. The opportunity to lift the Blue Note Cup and parade around the ice in front of family, friends and teammates after competing in a two-week tournament will elicit a desire to succeed like the state tournament has never seen before.
The Champions will be able to keep the Cup for the year. This will allow each team to have individual celebrations with the Cup and then display it in their home rink for the next year. The Cups will be returned prior to the next year’s tournament. The Team will be engraved on the Cup like the NHL’s version!
