The Whitehorse Huskies are a Canadian senior amateur ice hockey team that plays out of the Takhini Arena in Whitehorse, Yukon, Canada. The team plays under the sanctioning of the British Columbia Amateur Hockey Association and Hockey Canada. They are one-time Allan Cup National Champions.

HistoryEdit

In 1993 the Whitehorse Huskies won the Allan Cup by defeating the Quesnel Kangaroos in the Final. After taking the coveted Allan Cup back to the Yukon, the team hung up their skates.[1] The Huskies are the only teams from the Yukon, Northwest Territories, or Nunavut to have ever won the Allan Cup.

In 2009, after a 16 year hiatus, Hockey Canada approved the revival of the Huskies, and the team was subsequently sanctioned by the British Columbia Amateur Hockey Association to compete during the 2009-10 season. This edition of the Triple A men’s hockey team, was coached by Randy Merkel[2].

In the 2009-10 playoffs, the Huskies were eliminated from 2010 Allan Cup contention when they were swept 3-games-to-none by the Powell River Regals in the Pacific finals.

The team had to scrub playing for the 2010-11 season due to the cost of importing players, travel costs and poor ticket sales.

The team was revived for the 2014-15 season. The team lost to the Fort St. John Flyers 2 games to none in a qualifier for the 2015 Coy Cup. The team qualified for the 2016 Coy Cup losing in the semifinal. The team was awarded hosting rights to the 2017 Coy Cup
