We are pleased to bring the Warriors and the history of the Moose Jaw Canucks together for this special night.”
The Moose Jaw Canucks were one of the founding members of the Western Canada Junior Hockey League, which is now known today as the Western Hockey League. The Canucks franchise began in 1934 and ended in 1984.
In 1966 the Canucks were one of five Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League clubs that left to join the WCJHL for their inaugural season. Moose Jaw defeated the Regina Pats in the 1966-1967 final to become the first league champions.
