The 2013 edition marks the fifth annual Clarkson Cup, which recognizes the top women's hockey team in the country.
The Clarkson Cup was named after former Governor General of Canada Adrienne Clarkson. It is highly regarded as The Stanley Cup of women's hockey, as it is quickly becoming the ultimate trophy to strive for in this fast-growing female sport.
The Montreal Stars are looking for a third straight Clarkson Cup win. While the Alberta Hockey Club, Boston Blades, Brampton Hockey Club and the Toronto Furies are all hoping to bring the Cup and the bragging rights.
