In 1996, The Newmarket 87's (Newmarket Hurricanes) were OPJHL champions. They went to the Dudley Hewitt Cup in Cobourg, Ontario to compete for the Central Canadian Championship. Also attending from the OPJHL were the Cobourg Cougars as hosts and the Brampton Capitals as OPJHL finalists. Cobourg lost to the Thunder Bay Flyers 5-3, defeated the Rayside-Balfour Sabrecats 5-3, before losing to both Newmarket and Brampton. Newmarket defeated Rayside-Balfour 4-3, Cobourg 3-1, lost to Brampton, and then Thunder Bay 3-2. The Capitals were undefeated in the round robin, defeating Thunder Bay 5-2, Rayside-Balfour 10-6, Newmarket 6-3, and Cobourg 9-3. All three OPJHL teams made the tournament's semi-finals. In the first semi-final, Brampton defeated Cobourg 5-2, while Newmarket beat Thunder Bay 6-3. This results in a rematch of the OPJHL final in the Dudley Hewitt Cup final. The Newmarket 87's crushed Brampton 8-2. Next, Newmarket flew out to Melfort, Saskatchewan to compete in the Royal Bank Cup 1996. In their first game they defeated the BCHL's Vernon Vipers 7-5, then the SJHL's Yorkton Terriers 5-2. It all went downhill from there as the 87's then lost to the host Melfort Mustangs 11-3, the MJAHL's Moncton Beavers 4-3, and were defeated in the semi-final by Vernon 7-4. This ended the OPJHL's first odyssey in the Royal Bank Cup. Their best season was the 1995-96 season, after the Colts expanded into the Ontario Hockey League. The 87's finished in third place, won the Buckland Cup as league champions, and then took the Dudley Hewitt Cup as Central Canadian Junior "A" Champions. At the inaugural Royal Bank Cup in 1996 (Royal Bank Cup 1996) at Melfort, Saskatchewan, the 87's finished off in the round robin in second place with a 2-2 record. They defeated the BCHL's (British Columbia Hockey League) Vernon Vipers 7-5 in their first game. They then took out the SJHL's (Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League) Yorkton Terriers 5-2. Everything was looking great, but the 87's soon fell apart. In the third game, the 87's were up against the only other undefeated team—the host, the SJHL's Melfort Mustangs. The Mustangs deflated the high-flying 87's with an 11-3 blow-out. Melfort finished perfect in the round robin, but the 87's were embarrassed again by the MJAHL's (Maritime Junior A Hockey League) Moncton Beavers, 4-3. The embarrassment was not due to the score, but due to the Beavers standing as the only winless team left in the round robin until this point. The Moncton victory still left them eliminated from the tournament. Also, due to a tie breaker the 87's were still in second place. They ended up playing the Vipers again in the semi-final and lost by an uninspired score of 7-4. The Vipers knocked off the undefeated Mustangs 2-0 in the final.

Melfort, Saskatchewan

'''Melfort''' (2011 population (Canada 2011 Census) 5,576) is a small Canadian (Canada) city in Saskatchewan, approximately north of Regina (Regina, Saskatchewan).

According to The World Gazetteer, its population as of 2004 was 5,400. Melfort became Saskatchewan's 12th city in 1980; although it had achieved the necessary 5,000 population a number of years earlier, residents were reluctant to give up their status as a town, and for a time, the town of Melfort was actually larger than the city of Melville (Melville, Saskatchewan).

Melfort is called "The City of Northern Lights" due to the frequency with which the aurora borealis appears.

This city is bordered by the Rural Municipality of Star City No. 428 (Star City No. 428, Saskatchewan) and the Rural Municipality of Flett's Springs No. 429 (Flett's Springs No. 429, Saskatchewan).

It is also the administrative centre of the Peter Chapman First Nations band government.
