The Winnipeg Monarchs were a Canadian Junior "A" ice hockey team from Winnipeg, Manitoba. They were members of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL) and it’s predecessor the Winnipeg and District Junior Hockey League (WJrHL).


In 1975, the team changed it's name to Assiniboine Park Monarchs, this allowed the WCHL team to use the Winnipeg Monarchs name. The WCHL team relocated in '77' and once more the Winnipeg Monarchs were in the MJHL, but sadly it would be for one final swan song. At season's end after nearly 50 years in the MJHL, winning 10 Turnbull Cups as Manitoba Junior champs, 5 Abbott Cup (Western Canada), & 3 Memorial Cup (Canada), the Winnipeg Monarchs folded.


On May 18,1978, Fort Garry Blues of the Manitoba Major Junior Hockey League purchased the Monarchs last asset, their MJHL franchise.
