Ottawa Senators Sports and Entertainment, along with groups in Kamloops and St. John’s, all submitted bids for the event. St. Jonh’s found out it was out of the running earlier this month.

Hockey Canada CEO Bob Nicholson, Ontario Women’s Hockey Association president Fran Rider, Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson and Ottawa Senators president Cyril Leeder will all be on hand for a noon press conference at Scotiabank Place.
