The Winnipeg Jets were a junior hockey team that played in the Western Canada Hockey League from 1967 to 1977. The franchise played at Winnipeg Arena in Winnipeg, Manitoba.
Note: This article contains the history of the Winnipeg portion of this franchise. From 1967 to 1977, including the Jets, Clubs, and Monarchs.
During the summer of 1967, the Manitoba Amateur Hockey Association agreed to allowed three teams to enter the Western Canada Junior Hockey League, the Brandon Wheat Kings and the Flin Flon Bombers from the Manitoba Junior Hockey League, and a new team, the Ben Hatskin's owned Winnipeg Jets.
After one season of operating both the World Hockey Association Jets and the Junior Jets, Hatskin put the Junior Jets up for sale. A group led by Coach and General Manager Gerry Brisson purchase them. The new owners had a 3 year deal with a brewery, therefore the team was renamed the Winnipeg Clubs.
After an attempt to move the team to Spokane, Washington was disapproved by the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association, the team was renamed the Winnipeg Monarchs. The Monarch name was the city's oldest hockey moniker, originating in 1903.
In 1977 the Monarchs moved to Calgary to become the Calgary Wranglers. They are today the Lethbridge Hurricanes.
