Information[edit]

Both Quebec and the Maritime Provinces were not represented at the 2009 Allan Cup. It was the second consecutive year that the Maritimes had been unable to muster together a Senior "AAA" club. Quebec missed the tournament for the first time in recent history due to their only major Senior league being on hiatus that season.[2]

A new regional grouping was added for 2009, as Northern Ontario was represented by the Thunder Bay Twins who defeated the Kenora Thistles 2-games-to-1.[3] The Southern Ontario region was represented by the Dundas Real McCoys, winner of Major League Hockey, the only league to fully be taking part in this year's Allan Cup.[3]

This years Allan Cup also featured a rare scenario where the host venue happened to be the home arena for two competing teams. While the Steinbach North Stars were the host team, the Southeast Prairie Thunder also earned a berth in the Allan Cup by defeating the Selkirk Rivermen in provincial playdowns.[4] Saskatchewan was a battle between the 2007 Allan Cup champion Lloydminster Border Kings and the Weyburn Devils, won by Lloydminster.[5]

The Alberta champions, Bentley Generals, defeated the Fort St. John Flyers, the only team registered in British Columbia, to win the McKenzie Cup and the Pacific seed.[6]
