History of the Cromie Memorial Cup

The Cromie Memorial Cup, emblematic of the U18 AAA Amateur Hockey Championship in British Columbia, was donated by Don Cromie in memory of his late father Robert J. Cromie. The Cromie family ran the Vancouver Sun for much of the 1900s, starting in 1917 when Robert rescued the paper from bankruptcy. He ran the paper until his death in 1936, after which his sons Don, Peter and Samuel took over the family business. As Vice President, Don sold the newspaper in 1964. The Cromie family left a legend in Vancouver that transcended their era.

Merritt, the 1938 Midget AAA Provincial champion, was the first team to have their name engraved on the Cromie Memorial Cup. When the BC Major Midget League formed in 2004, the Cromie Memorial Cup became the league's championship trophy.

Today, the trophy has been presented 79 times, including to the past 16 BCEHL U18 AAA Champions:

Each month the BCEHL honours one player from each of the four leagues as the BCEHL Player of the Month for their respective league. Every team has the opportunity to nominate an individual from their team to be considered for the monthly award. This award is not strictly based on statistics. Team staff factor in the player’s on-and-off ice contributions towards the team as well as their involvement within the community and minor hockey mentorship.
