College Hockey:
CCHA looking to track down past Mason Cup winners

The CCHA announced Wednesday that it has launched a “Search for Mason Cup Champions” to find all former CCHA players with their name engraved on the Mason Cup, the trophy awarded to the league’s annual playoff champion.

The league’s website will include a page to track the progress of finding members of each of the 41 Mason Cup championship teams, including their hometowns, highest level of hockey played and their current occupations.

To aid in the search, the league will reach out to CCHA fans through Facebook (Facebook.com/CCHAhockey) and Twitter (@CCHAhockey).

The league also plans to invite all CCHA alumni to the final CCHA championship weekend and awards show next March at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit.

“With the help of our member schools and fans, we are looking forward to finding our Mason Cup champions and making our final season and CCHA championship a celebration of the league’s storied 42-year history,” said CCHA commissioner Fred Pletsch in a news release.

    What will happen to the Mason Cup itself after this season? Any chance of the Big Ten using it? Would be nice considering the namesake.

      Big Ten does not have special trophys for any other sport, so I doubt there is any chance.
