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.
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. The [3 ] 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 ]
