The Flin Flon Bombers are a Canadian Junior "A" ice hockey team from Flin Flon, Manitoba. They are members of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League, a part of the Canadian Junior Hockey League and Hockey Canada.

The team was briefly known as the Creighton Bombers from 1984 to 1986 (due to SJHL rules) but were allowed to change the name back to the Flin Flon Bombers in 1986.

The junior Bombers started in 1948 playing in the Northern Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League. In 1950, the League became the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League. During the SJHL first decade the Bombers were League champs seven times, and in 1957, National Champs, captured the Memorial Cup. The League folded in 1966, forcing the Bombers to join the Manitoba Junior Hockey League for a season. In 1967, the MAHA allowed the Bombers to join the Western Canada Hockey League. The Bombers reached the finals their first 4 years, winning in 69 & 70. In 1977, because of economical times, Hudson Bay Mining & Smelting Co. stopped sponsoring the team. In 1978, the WCHL franchise was sold, becoming the Edmonton Oil Kings. Also in 1978, the Bombers help form the NorMan Junior Hockey League. In 1981-82, the Bombers went undefeated, going 42-0. In 1984, the team joined the new Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League.
