Manchester Monarchs 2015 AHL Calder Cup Champions


Manchester Monarchs win their first AHL Calder Cup Championship in their 14th and last season in the league.

Los Angeles Kings‘ 3rd year prospect center Jordan Weal(19) won the Jack A. Butterfield Trophy as MVP of the playoffs.

He scored a leading 22 points (10 goals, 12 assists) with a +12 rating.

With series wins over Portland Pirates (3-2), Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins (4-1), Hartford Wolf Pack (4-1) in the Eastern Conference Finals and Utica Comets (4-1) they put together 15 victories to claim the title.

It was the second year in a row that the MacGregor Kilpatrick Trophy winner, regular season points champs, won the whole thing.

The team will switch leagues and affiliations, as Ontario Reign become the new direct farm club and the Monarchs will continue their relationship with the parent team in the ECHL.
