The Sioux Lookout Flyers were added to the Superior International Junior Hockey League for the 2008-09 season. The Flyers mark the first major level hockey in the town since the Intermediate leagues of the 1970s.
The Flyers are Ontario Junior hockey's most Northerly club at 50° 06′ North.
On September 19, 2008, the Flyers lost their first ever game to the Schreiber Diesels in Schreiber, Ontario by a score of 10-2. On September 26, the Flyers played their first home game and lost 6-2 to the defending SIJHL champion Dryden Ice Dogs.
On November 12, 2008, sixteen games into a winless season, the ownership of the team pulled the plug on the franchise. Two days later, the town of Sioux Lookout held a town meeting in regards to the team and elected to save the team as a community with the help of a Winnipeg-based investor. The team went on hiatus for three games, but returned to action on November 19. 
The Flyers won their first ever game on January 2, 2009, defeating the Dryden Ice Dogs, on the road, 5-4 in overtime. The victory was Sioux Lookout's 30th league game.
