NotesEdit

The longest drought in CHL history belongs to the Saskatoon Blades, who have never won the WHL title or Memorial Cup since their founding in 1966. Historically, the longest drought belonged to the London Knights, who went 40 years between their founding in 1965 and their first OHL title and Memorial Cup in 2005. The Blades passed this mark by failing to win in 2005-06.

The longest drought among teams who have won their league title but never the Memorial Cup belongs to the Brandon Wheat Kings. The team has won three WHL titles but never the Memorial Cup since their founding in 1968.

There is only one CHL team that has won the Memorial Cup but never their own league - the Quebec Remparts, who re-joined the QMJHL in 1997 and won the 2006 Memorial Cup as QMJHL runners-up to champion and tournament host Moncton.

The longest drought among teams since their last league championship belongs to the Regina Pats, who have not won the WHL title since 1980. The longest Memorial Cup drought among previous winning teams belongs to the Peterborough Petes, whose only Memorial Cup title came in 1979.

The Owen Sound Attack franchise, won the OHL championship and Memorial Cup in 1986 as the Guelph Platers. Since the franchise moved to Owen Sound in 1989, it has not won any championships, as the Owen Sound Platers or Owen Sound Attack.

The Sudbury Wolves franchise, has won the OHL championship and Memorial Cup in both of its previous incarnations. The Barrie Flyers won the Memorial Cup in 1951 and 1953, and the J. Ross Robertson Cup in 1948, 1949, 1951 and 1953. The Niagara Falls Flyers won the Memorial Cup in 1965 and 1968, and the J. Ross Robertson Cup in 1963, 1965 and 1968.
