The 2009 Allan Cup was the 2009 edition of the Canadian National Championship of Senior ice hockey. This tournament marked the 101st year that the Allan Cup has been awarded. The 2009 tournament was hosted by the City of Steinbach, Manitoba and the Steinbach North Stars.[1] The tournament began on April 13, 2009, and ended April 18, 2009. All games were played at the T.G. Smith Centre.

In the final, the Bentley Generals won their first ever Allan Cup, defeated the Southeast Prairie Thunder 4-3 in double overtime.


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]

With Steinbach hosting the 2009 event, the Manitoba representative was determined by the winner of the Southeast Prairie Thunder-Selkirk Rivermen series. The Thunder, who coincidentally were also based out of Steinbach, won the series and were crowned Manitoba champions.[4] Saskatchewan was a battle between the 2007 Allan Cup champion Lloydminster Border Kings and the Weyburn Devils, won by Lloydminster.[5]

Only the Fort St. John Flyers registered in British Columbia, who lost to the Alberta winner, Bentley Generals, in the McKenzie Cup to determine the Pacific seed.[6]
