Turner Cup

The Turner Cup

The Turner Cup was the championship trophy of the International Hockey League's annual playoffs. The Cup is named for Joe Turner, a goaltender from Windsor, Ontario. Turner became professional with the Detroit Red Wings organization, and played one season with the Indianapolis Capitals in the American Hockey League. Turner was killed in Belgium during World War II, while serving with the United States Army.

The Turner Cup currently makes its home at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. In July 2007 the United Hockey League, officially changed its name to "International Hockey League". The new IHL put forth a request to the Hockey Hall of Fame to take a controlling interest in the Turner Cup. The name Turner Cup has been restored as of September 24, 2007 as a tribute to the original IHL.
