The MJHL Celebrated Their Indigenous Roots

The MJHL Celebrated its strong Indigenous routes for National Indigenous Day Yesterday. The league celebrated its rich history of coaches, player’s management, and staff that have been a key part of the success of the league.


The league has had countless indigenous alumni succeed within the league and graduate to the NHL level from First Nations, Métis, and Inuit backgrounds.


Most recently highlights from local Brady Keeper who played with the OCN Blizzard and earned an NHL contract with the Florida Panthers after only two college seasons with the University of Maine.


The MJHL has two clubs in First Nations communities, both operating for over 20 years. The OCN Blizzard, founded in 1996, and the Waywayseecappo Wolverines, founded in 1999. Both teams often carry Indigenous players and staff.


Bryden Sinclair of Peguis First Nation was named Captain of the OCN Blizzard on June 11th for the 2021-2022 season and has already committed to play NCAA Division Hockey at the University of Maine in the future.


Another former OCN Blizzard player, Tony Apetagon now plays for the University of Manitoba Bisons. Tony spent a brief time as an assistant coach during the beginning of the shortened 2020-2021 season.


Several MJHL prospects represent Manitoba at the National Aboriginal Hockey Championships on a yearly basis, winning gold during the 2017 and 2019 games.


Throughout each season the MJHL and its member clubs acknowledge that they compete on Treaty 1, Treaty 2, Treaty 4, and Treaty 5 lands, collectively the traditional territories of Anishinaabe, Assiniboine, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, Dene, and Inninnowuk peoples, and the homeland of the Métis Nation.

Campsites Remain Open Through the Summer

The pandemic may have temporarily shut down a lot of things over the year but camping and canoeing is still something you can do to escape the work life this weekend.

The change was a long time coming and is now something the town can be proud of according to Titans Head Coach and General Manager, Ken Pearson.

Niverville Awarded Newest MJHL Team

The Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL) has awarded Niverville the newest team on the MJHL’s roster.
Niverville is one of the fastest growing communities in the province located about a 20 minute drive South East of Winnipeg. The team will play its inaugural season from the brand new Niverville Community Resource and Recreation Centre in the 2022-2023 season.
The MJHL has been in ongoing discussions for a number of years with Niverville A Junior Hockey inc and the Niverville town council and feels the town will provide an ideal home market for the MJHL going forward. At this time it’s still unknown whether it will be a brand new team or a relocation of a currently existing team.
