The Abbott Memorial Cup, commonly known as the Abbott Cup, was awarded annually from 1919 through 1999, first to the Western Canada Junior Hockey Champion and then starting in 1933 to the Western Canada Junior "A" Hockey Champion.
Saskatchewan Amateur Hockey Association gave the Abbott Memorial Cup to the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association in memory of Captain Edward Lyman "Hick" Abbott who died in active service in World War I. He was Captain of the Regina Victorias when they won the Senior Hockey Championship of Canada in 1914. In 1999 the Cup was retired. It can now be found at the Hockey Hall of Fame.
In 1970 Junior "A" hockey was divided into Major Junior and Junior "A", with the Abbott Cup becoming the Western Canada Championship in the Junior "A" level. The Abbott Cup was a playoff round, a best of seven game series, between the Anavet Cup Champions (Interprovincial Champions from Saskatchewan / Manitoba) and Doyle Cup Champions (Interprovincial Champions from British Columbia / Alberta). The winner represented the West in the Centennial Cup for the National Championship. This format lasted from 1971 to 1989.
Starting in 1990, the winners of the Anavet and Doyle Cups would go straight to the National Championship.
An Abbott Cup Champion was crowned from a single game between the Anavet Cup Champions and the Doyle Cup Champions during the round robin part of this tournament. In 1999 the Cup was retired.
Prior to 1971, the Abbott Cup was part of the Memorial Cup playoffs, and awarded to the Western Canada Junior Hockey Champion and then starting in 1933 to the Western Canada Junior "A" Hockey Champion.
