This is the 1936-37 Manitoba Junior Hockey League Season.

Forword
The MJHL was run & controlled by the Manitoba Amateur Hockey Association.
Realistically, the League was actually two leagues under one umbrella.
“B” Division actually tried to united the 2 divisions, asking for a 18 game inter locking schedule. “A” Division wanted no part of it. The dispute lasted a couple of weeks, before the MAHA decided to keep the status quo.

MAHA NotesEdit

Convener of Junior Hockey: Vic Johnson
Winnipeg Rangers merge with the Winnipeg Falcons, becoming the Winnipeg Falcon-Rangers
Kildonan Stars became the Winnipegs.
Woodhaven Leafs became the St. James Canadians.
Brandon Wheat Kings added to "B" Division.

Charlie Gardiner Memorial SeriesEdit

The Charlie Gardiner Memorial Series was a preseason series of games involving the Winnipeg based teams. The winner received the Charlie Gardiner Memorial Trophy. The trophy was the idea of the University of Manitoba Student's Union, who started a fund to establish. Charlie Gardiner, born in Scotland but raised in Winnipeg, was considered the greatest goalie of his era. In 1934 after leading the Chicago Black Hawks to their first Stanley Cup, Gardiner died of a brain hemorrhage at the age of only 29. The Winnipeg Monarchs were the 1936 winners.
