“For hockey fans, this is a tremendous value,” said Lorne Taillon, Supervisor, Recreation & Programming with the City of Cornwall. “You’ll get to watch some world-class hockey and get access to every game of the tournament for one great price.”

Additional ticket packages and single game tickets will go on sale at a later date.

Game on!

Cornwall was originally selected to host the 2020 WJAC however the pandemic forced Hockey Canada to cancel events. The tournament in Cornwall was pushed back to 2021 and the extra time has only served to generate more anticipation for the event. It will be just the second time that an Ontario community hosts the tournament.

The tournament has quickly become a highlight for NHL scouts – and for good reason. The WJAC alone has produced more than 230 NHL draft picks, including 36 first-rounders – think names like Jost, Lindholm, Pastrnak, Schwartz, Tarasenko, Turris, Vasilevski and Yakupov.
