Shawinigan won it last year as the host beating London 2-1 in OT in the final. They finished second in their conference but got knocked out in the second round of the QMJHL playoffs.

I would say they had a bit of advantage having like a month off while the other teams were grinding it out in the playoffs. I felt like London was the best team in the tournament but ended up losing in a close game in the finals. I thought St. John's and Edmonton were big time disapointments in that tournament.

It should be a better tournament this year though especially if London makes it in. A lot draft eligible talent for us to watch since the NHL Network televises the whole thing live in the US too.
