The city of Topeka is playing host to the prestigious Robertson Cup Championship Tournament, which crowns the playoff champion of the North American Hockey League. It's taking place at the Kansas Expocentre now through Saturday. Arch Ecker, the play-by-play announcer for the Topeka Roadrunners hockey team, says hosting the Cup Championship is a big honor:
The tournament is played as a three-game round robin between the champions of the NAHL divisions. This year's competing teams are the Fairbanks Ice Dogs, the Amarillo Bulls, the Michigan Warriors, and our very own Topeka Roadrunners, who were the regular-season champions. The Robertson Cup runs through May 7th at Landon Arena. Ticket information is available online at www.ksexpo.com.
