The Cyclone Taylor Cup tournament serves as the British Columbia Provincial Junior B Hockey Championship. The annual tournament is held amongst the champions of British Columbia's three Junior B ice hockey leagues, as well as a host team. The winner of the Cyclone Taylor Cup moves onto the Western Canadian Junior B championship, the Keystone Cup.

The tournament and championship trophy is named after Hockey Hall of Famer Fred "Cyclone" Taylor, who was an integral member of the Vancouver Millionaires Stanley Cup victory in 1915.

Tournament Organization[edit]

The tournament is played between four teams in a single round-robin format. The top two teams meet in the championship game.

The 2014 qualifiers are as follows:

Prior to the 2003-04 season, the hosting duties were rotated through the three leagues, with the champions from the other two leagues playing off for the right to meet the host league's champion. The winner would then face the host league's champion in a best-of-three series for the Cyclone Taylor Cup, played over one weekend.
