The 2012 MasterCard Memorial Cup was a four-team, round-robin format ice hockey tournament played from May 18–27, 2012 at the Centre Bionest in Shawinigan, Quebec. It was the 94th Memorial Cup championship and determined the champion of the Canadian Hockey League (CHL). The tournament featured the London Knights, champions of the Ontario Hockey League, the Saint John Sea Dogs, champions of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, the Edmonton Oil Kings, champions of the Western Hockey League, and the Shawinigan Cataractes, who won the right to host the tournament over bids by the Saint John Sea Dogs, Halifax Mooseheads and Cape Breton Screaming Eagles.[1]

On May 27, the Shawinigan Cataractes defeated the London Knights 2–1 in overtime to win the Memorial Cup for the first time ever in franchise history, becoming just the 2nd team after the 2009 Windsor Spitfires to win the Memorial Cup after playing in the tiebreaker game, the first host to win the Memorial Cup at home since the Vancouver Giants in 2007, and the first QMJHL host to win the Memorial Cup since the Hull Olympiques in 1997. The Cataractes win also gave the QMJHL back to back Memorial Cups for the first time since the Granby Prédateurs in 1996 and the Hull Olympiques in 1997.
