Hockey Championship in Sherwood Park, Alta. The tournament features
members
of Canada’s National Women’s Team and Canada’s Under-22 National Team,
as
well as players who have participated in the Canada Winter Games and the
National Women’s Under-18 Challenge. This year’s tournament features 10
teams from nine provinces competing for the coveted National
Championship
title.

At the IIHF World Women’s Hockey Championship from Halifax/Dartmouth,
N.S.,
TSN will televise two games involving Team Canada plus the Gold Medal
Game.
Canada’s women’s hockey team has participated in every World
Championship in
tournament history, winning all seven tournaments without ever recording
a
loss.

TSN celebrates the 30th anniversary of the National Midget Hockey
Championship from Kenora, Ont., with coverage of the Gold Medal Game.
Formerly known as the Air Canada Cup, the annual event showcases many
future
NHL players and is the only officially recognized national minor hockey
championship in Canada. Current and former NHL stars that have taken
part
in the tournament include Mike Peca (1990), Joe Sakic (1986), Wendel
Clark
(1982), Steve Yzerman (1980) and Al MacInnis (1979).

TSN travels to Prague, Czech Republic to provide complete Team Canada
coverage of the IIHF Men’s World Hockey Championship. Teams are
comprised
of NHL players not involved in the NHL playoffs. Last year, Canada took
home the gold medal with a 3-2 overtime win against Sweden.

This year’s RBC Royal Bank Cup from Grande Prairie, Alta., marks the
first
Junior ‘A’ championship to be played without a red line to negate
two-line
passes. TSN has coverage of the Gold Medal Game from the annual
tournament.

The IIHF World Junior Hockey Championship returns to North American soil
as
the 2005 event will be held in North Dakota. TSN has complete Team
Canada
coverage, plus action from the quarter-finals, semifinals and Gold Medal
Game. TSN’s coverage of the Gold Medal Game from the 2003 World Juniors
in
Halifax attracted the largest audience in network history with 3.5
million
viewers.

The World Under-17 Hockey Challenge rounds out TSN’s Hockey Canada
