Royal Bank Cup teams set

The 2014 Royal Bank Cup roster is now confirmed.

The host Vernon Vipers will open the national Junior A hockey tournament Saturday night at Kal Tire Place against the Eastern champion Carleton Place Canadians of Ottawa.

The Canadians enjoyed a record-setting season with 54 wins and 110 points and took the Fred Page Cup Sunday with a 3-1 win over the host St. Jerome Panthers. The Canadians were unbeaten in the tourney.

The Dauphin Kings of Manitoba earned their RBC berth with a 4-3 comeback victory over the Spruce Grove Saints Sunday night at the Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup in Dauphin.

Dauphin opens the RBC Saturday afternoon against the Central champion Toronto Lakeshore Patriots. Toronto claimed the Dudley Hewitt Cup by clipping the Wellington Dukes 2-1. The Dukes had earlier stopped the Pats 5-3 in the round-robin.

Spruce Grove made the RBC qualifying game by derailing the BCHL champion Coquitlam Express 5-3 Saturday afternoon.

The Yorkton Terriers were the first team through to the RBC Cup after they beat Dauphin 5-4 Saturday night in the Western Canada Cup Championship game.

Yorkton gets a bye Saturday and play Toronto Sunday afternoon. The Vipers are off Sunday before taking on Yorkton Monday night.
