The Mississauga Chargers are a Tier II Junior "A" ice hockey team from Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. They are a part of the Ontario Junior A Hockey League. They are the product of a 1990 merger of two former Metro Junior B franchises, the Thornhill Thunderbirds and the Markham Connection. After the 1990 merger the team spent one year in Markham known as the Markham Thunderbirds, and in 1991 they returned to their Thornhill Thunderbirds name for one season. In 1992, the team moved to Mississauga. As a member of the Metro Junior A Hockey League they participated for 3 seasons. They left for the OPJHL in 1995. They have had a glim past few years, but in the 2007-08 season they saw a rare light when team captain Bruce Crawford lead the entire OPJHL in scoring (41-57-98)

HistoryEdit

Richmond Hill/Thornhill FranchiseEdit

This franchise had begun in 1981 as the Weston Dukes, becoming the King City Dukes in 1984, and becoming the Richmond Hill Dukes in 1987 for one season. The team moved to Thornill in 1988, and was named the Thunderbirds for two seasons before the merger.

Markham Travelways/Connection FranchiseEdit

In 1983 the North York Flames moved to Markham, and were named as the Travelways. In 1989 they were renamed the Markham Connection after the Travelways bus sponsor was sold.
