Carr-Harris Cup suspended for 2022 season
February 10, 2022
Queen’s Athletics & Recreation and RMC Athletics announced today that the 35th Carr-Harris Cup is suspended for the 2022 season. The Gaels and Paladins are looking forward to the return of the Carr-Harris Cup as a signature event in the 2023 hockey season.
The Carr-Harris Cup has become a marquee game in the Gaels and Paladins hockey schedules and a featured community event within the City of Kingston’s Feb Fest celebration. Prior to the pandemic, the 34th Carr-Harris Cup was played in front of a record crowd of 4,121 on Feb. 6, 2020, at the Leon’s Centre.
Queen’s and RMC athletic staff jointly agreed to suspend the game after careful considering the ongoing challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the respective university health and safety protocols and the logistics of staging all elements of the game that have come to be synonymous with the Carr-Harris Cup.
Both programs would like to thank the Carr-Harris family, the Leon’s Centre, the Original Hockey Hall of Fame, the Downtown Kingston! Business Improvement Area for their continued support and stewardship of the event. Both programs look forward to the 35th Carr-Harris Cup and its celebration of the longest hockey rivalry in the world as one of the signature events celebrating the City of Kingston in February 2023.
A date for the next Carr-Harris Cup will be confirmed following the release of the 2022-23 OUA Men’s Hockey schedule.
