The Hlinka Gretzky Cup will be in Edmonton and Red Deer August 6th to 11th!
It’s one of the few best-on-best international hockey tournaments and features the premiere under-18 players from some of the world’s greatest hockey nations: Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, Russia, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland and the United States.
The Hlinka Gretzky Cup will feature 18 games over six days played at both Rogers Place in Edmonton, including the gold-medal game on Aug. 11, and Group B games at the brand-new Servus Arena in Red Deer!
Many tournament alumni have gone on to become stars of the National Hockey League (NHL), including Sidney Crosby, Steven Stamkos and Carey Price. Edmonton Oilers Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Darnell Nurse, Oscar Klefbom, Jesse Puljujarvi, Kris Russell and Zack Kassian have all represented their countries in the tournament.
