Jessalyn Gilsig Tells The Story Of The Clarkson Cup

We've all heard of the Stanley Cup - but what about the Clarkson Cup?

Ever since 2009, the Clarkson (named for former governor general Adrienne) is awarded to the winner of the Canadian Women's Hockey Championships.

Jessalyn Gilsig, star of History's 'Vikings', tells the story of the Cup, and reveals something interesting about our Prime Minister in the process.

This year's Championship got underway today, and runs through Saturday, at Centennial Arena in Etobicoke, Ontario.
