The 2013 CIS Men's University Cup Hockey Tournament was held March 14–17, 2013. It was the first of two consecutive CIS Championships to be held at the Credit Union Centre in Saskatoon hosted by the University of Saskatchewan. The defending champions were the McGill Redmen, but they would not be able to defend their title having been eliminated in the first round of the OUA-East playoffs by the Nipissing Lakers.

Fewest Goals[edit]

The 2 goal aggregate in the Championship final represented the lowest ever to date - one lower than the previous record of 3 (1990, 2-1 and 2003 3-0). The shutout was the fourth shutout in a Championship final (1972, 2003, 2011 & 2013) and the first time a team has accomplished it twice (UNB's 4th Championship title in 2011 was a 4-0 shutout of McGill).

Tournament All-Stars[edit]

Tyler Carroll, from the UNB Varsity Reds, was selected as the Major W.J. 'Danny' McLeod Award for CIS University Cup MVP.[4] Carroll led all players in goals (4) and was second in points with 4.

Joining Carroll on the tournament all-star team were:
Forward Nick MacNeil (UNB Varsity Reds)
Forward Cory Tanaka (Saint Mary’s Huskies)
Defenceman Jesse Craige (Alberta Golden Bears)
Defenceman Marc-Antoine Desnoyers (UNB Varsity Reds)
