2013 USA Hockey Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament
Originally named the the Pacific Cup, and generally refereed to as the U-18 Junior World Tournament, it began in 1991

and was played in Japan, Mexico and Canada. In1997 Slovakia and the Czech Republic began co-hosting the annual
tournament. It was not until around 1996 that the USHL began to have regular representation of its U-18 players.

In 2007, the tournament was renamed in honor of  Ivan Hlinka; one of the first superstars in Czechoslovakian hockey – both
domestically and internationally. Following his storied player career he would take a spot behind the bench for numerous
Czech National Teams. In 2000 he became just the second European to coach in the NHL. In 2007 the tournament
was renamed in his honor.
