HistoryEdit

The Moose Jaw Canucks were a junior team.

They first appeared in 1923-24, when they lost out in the Southern Saskatchewan League.

It was in 1933-34 that they really got started.

They appeared in Saskatchewan Junior Hockey for fifteen straight seasons, winning the provincial title in 1938-39, 1944-45. 1945-46, 1946-47, 1947-48, and in 1948-49 as a member of the Western Canada Junior Hockey League (1949-56). During this string of five straight provincial championships, the Canucks also won the Western Canada playoffs in 1945 & 1947, losing the Memorial Cup playoffs both times.

The Canucks moved from the Saskatchewan League to the Western Canada League in 1948, hoping to find better competition, They stayed in that league for seven seasons to 1954-55.

They then took a two year hiatus while they waited for their arena to be completed. They played the 1958-59 season in Weyburn before coming home the next season.

During their seven years in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League the Canucks took one league title (1961-62).

The Canucks moved to the new Western Hockey League (junior) in 1966-67, taking that league's first championship. They stayed on for one more season before moving back to the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League. Worries about the status of the Western League prompted this move.

However, the Canucks could not get back into the Tier I Western Hockey League (junior) and had to be satisfied with the Tier II Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League.

The Canucks folded in 1984 in anticipation of the move of the Winnipeg Warriors to Moose Jaw.
