The OCN Blizzard are a Canadian Junior "A" ice hockey team from The Pas, Manitoba. They are members of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL), a part of the Canadian Junior Hockey League and Hockey Canada.

The Blizzard entered the MJHL as an expansion team for the 1996-97 season. The team is owned by the First Nation Opaskwayak Cree Nation. OCN is based on a territory beside The Pas.

In 2003, the Blizzard became only the second team in MJHL history to win five straight Turnbull Cups. Only the legendary Elmwood Millionaires had ever won 5 in a row.
