Portage Terriers hoist Anavet Cup (2005)

The Anavet Cup was a championship ice hockey trophy, won through a best-of-7 series, conducted by the Canadian Junior Hockey League. It was played between the Turnbull Cup champions of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League and the Credential Cup champions of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League. The winner of the Anavet Cup earned a berth in the Royal Bank Cup, the Junior "A" National Championship.

The term "Anavet" come from the Canadian non-for-profit organization Anavets, or Army, Navy & Air Force Veterans in Canada.

The Anavet Cup Champion was traditionally played against the Doyle Cup Champion for the Western Canadian Championship, the Abbott Cup. However, with the reorganization of representative "Regions" to play for the Royal Bank Cup in 1990, the Abbott Cup had diminished in importance. The last Abbott Cup champion was crowned in 1999, with the trophy being retired.

After 2011-12 season, the Doyle Cup and Anavet Cup were retired in favour of the Western Canada Cup.
