SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. - A legal fight is brewing ahead of the Eastern Canadian Junior A hockey championship, the Fred Page Cup.
Civic officials in Summerside P.E.I, say they are looking into seeking a court injunction after it was decided that all games will be played at an arena in Moncton, N.B.
A New Brunswick team, The Dieppe Commandos, are hosting the tournament, but it was announced last week that two games involving the Maritime Junior A Hockey League-champion Summerside Western Capitals would be shifted to the Island to help the gate.
Maritime league president Derryl Smith said Monday that Ontario and Quebec officials gave verbal agreements, but the Pembroke team fought the venue change after winning the Central Junior Hockey League championship and the decision was reversed.
The city had already signed a contract with the host committee to stage the two games.
Gordon MacFarlane, Summerside's acting community services director, says the city is making a ''last-ditch effort'' to seek a court injunction.

Organizations: Eastern Canadian Junior A, Maritime Junior A Hockey League, Central Junior Hockey League
