Nunavut Junior[edit]

In Nunavut two Junior teams compete annually for the Challenge Cup with its winner earning the chance to play in the Maritime-Hockey North Junior C Championships. The two Junior "C" teams are the Kivalliq Canucks (Rankin Inlet based) and Baffin Blizzard (Iqaluit based).

Originally three teams, Team Kitikmeot and Team Baffin combined to become the Qikiiqtani Elks before changing its name to Baffin Blizzard. Team Kivalliq changed their name in 2007 to the Kivalliq Canucks. The two teams hold regional tryouts and go directly into a head-to-head playoff for the Nunavut Challenge Cup for the right to compete in the Maritime-Hockey North Junior C Championships.
