Broadmoor Trophy

Broadmoor Trophy

The Broadmoor Trophy has been awarded to the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) playoff champion since 1985. The trophy itself dates to 1981, when it was awarded to the WCHA regular season champion for three seasons, from 1981-82 to 1983-84. During that time, the Broadmoor Trophy served as the replacement for the MacNaughton Cup, traditionally awarded to the WCHA regular season champion. The trophy is named after the Broadmoor Hotel in Colorado Springs, Colorado, which has a long history of supporting college hockey.

The Broadmoor Trophy was commissioned as a replacement for the MacNaughton Cup, held in trust by Michigan Tech University. In 1981, Michigan Tech left the WCHA for the Central Collegiate Hockey Association, taking the Cup with them. To fill the void, the Broadmoor Hotel presented a new trophy to the WCHA to award to their regular season champion.

When Michigan Tech returned to the WCHA in 1984, the school returned the MacNaughton Cup to the league. The MacNaughton Cup returned to being awarded to the WCHA regular season champion, while the Broadmoor Trophy began being awarded to the playoff champion.
