The Robertson Cup Championship is a best-of-three playoff series held at the end of the North American Hockey League (NAHL) season. The trophy is awarded annually to the Junior A Tier II national playoff champion.

The oldest junior hockey trophy in the United States, the Robertson Cup is named in honor of Chuck Robertson, a pioneer of junior hockey in the NAHL and youth hockey in the state of Michigan. Chuck Robertson was the owner of the Paddock Pools Saints when they won a record seven straight NAHL championships from 1976-83.

The 2014 Robertson Cup Championship was hosted at the Big Dipper Ice Arena in Fairbanks, Alaska. The Fairbanks Ice Dogs defeated the Austin Bruins in two games to win the 2014 Robertson Cup.
