Ice Dogs and Wings battle for Robertson Cup on Tuesday

May 14, 2019
One game remains in the 2018-19 NAHL season, and it is the biggest of them all… the 2019 Robertson Cup National Championship Game.
Tuesday’s match-up will be a battle against the Central Division Champion Aberdeen Wings against the Midwest Division Champion Fairbanks Ice Dogs. Face-off is scheduled for 7pm at Fogerty Arena in Blaine, MN.
Each team lost the opening game of their three-game Semi-Final series, but came back to take Games 2 and 3 to advance to tonight’s National Championship Game.
It is familiar territory for the Ice Dogs, who have won the Robertson Cup three times since 2011, while it is uncharted waters for the Wings, who will be playing in their first-ever Championship Game.
Just 16 teams have won the Robertson Cup since it was first awarded in 1976 and 2019 will be the 44th time the league has awarded it to its National Champion.
TICKETS: Tickets for the 2019 NAHL Robertson Cup National Championship Game are sold at the Fogerty Arena Box Office beginning at 5pm.

The Robertson Cup is awarded to the national playoff champion of the NAHL. The oldest junior hockey trophy in the United States, the Robertson Cup is named in honor of Chuck Robertson, a pioneer of junior hockey in the NAHL and youth hockey in the state of Michigan. Robertson was the owner of the Paddock Pools Saints when they won a record seven straight championships from 1976-83.
One of the things the NAHL does better than any other junior league is seeing their players earn an NCAA opportunity while playing in the NAHL. To date, 284 NAHL players have already made NCAA commitments during the 2018-19 season. The NAHL’s Robertson Cup Championship will play a big role in that success, with dozens of players earning an NCAA opportunity following their participation in the event.
