OTTAWA, ON – January 8, 2018 – The Ottawa Jr. Senators are already getting to work on what will be a fantastic week of hockey May 2-6, 2018. The Jr. Sens who won the right to host the 2018 Fred Page Cup (FPC) last spring are all set to work on the event and pleased to launch the official logo and website. The four team Championship will consist of the winners from the Maritime Junior A Hockey League (MHL), Quebec Junior AAA Hockey League, the Central Canada Hockey League (CCHL) champion and the host team (Ottawa Jr. Senators).
