The Mooseheads beat the Portland Winterhawks 6-4 in the championship game of the Mastercard Memorial Cup at the Credit Union Centre in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. “This is a special group of young men who have accomplished something truly great,” said Premier Dexter. “It’s been an exciting journey for Moose fans, culminating with tonight’s big win against a tough opponent. And I can tell you they were cheering extra loud in my community of Cole Harbour for Nathan MacKinnon’s hat trick. “On behalf of all Nova Scotians and Mooseheads fans everywhere, I want to congratulate the entire team on its Memorial Cup win and a historic season. Enjoy this moment.” Premier Dexter acknowledged captains Stefan Fournier and Trey Lewis, and congratulated head coach Dominique Ducharme on being named 2013 CHL Coach of the Year, and Jonathan Drouin on being named CHL Player of the Year. It is the first time the Mooseheads have won awards in either category. The Mooseheads, who lost just six games in the regular season and one in the playoffs, were ranked first in the CHL going into the Memorial Cup. This victory makes the Mooseheads the third straight team from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League to win the Memorial Cup.
