Coupe de France (ice hockey)

The Coupe de France is an ice hockey competition in France. It is the premier knockout cup competition organized by the French Ice Hockey Federation. Since 2006-2007, the winners have been awarded the Trophée Pete-Laliberté. Federation president Luc Tardif moved the French Cup final to the Palais ominisport de Paris-Bercy, Paris' largest and most prestigious indoor venue, where it proved an unexpected success, providing the French game with a much needed marquee event in the nation's capital.[1]
