Frank Maurice Stinson Jenkins was an early amateur ice hockey player. He was a founder, and the first captain of the Ottawa Hockey Club (Ottawa HC) of 1883.

In 1883, after viewing the ice hockey tournament at the Montreal Winter Carnival, Halder Kirby and Jack Kerr returned to Ottawa, with a plan to form a hockey club. The Ottawa Hockey Club was formed, and Frank Jenkins was its first captain.

The club played in the Montreal tournaments in 1884 and 1885. In 1886, the Amateur Hockey Association of Canada (AHAC) league was formed with Ottawa one of the founding members. The Ottawa HC would play in the inaugural season of 1887, a season of challenges between teams, allowing the winner to be the current champion, with the final winner of the season considered Canadian champion. The club would not play in the AHAC again until 1891, and was dormant in 1888, restarting in 1889 after the opening of the Rideau Skating Rink. Mr. Jenkins would again be the captain.

The club would help found the Ontario Hockey Association in 1890, and was its first champion in the years 1890 to 1893. In 1891, Mr. Jenkins would assume the president title for the Ottawa HC, and in 1892, would assume the president title of the AHAC.
