The Winnipeg Saints were a Canadian Junior "A" ice hockey team from St. Boniface, Manitoba, a district within the city of Winnipeg, since 1972. They were members of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL), a part of the Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL) and Hockey Canada.

In September 1967, as part of an agreement with the Manitoba Amateur Hockey Association, Ben Hatskin sold the Winnipeg Rangers to a community-minded sports group in St. Boniface. The Team was renamed the St. Boniface Saints.

In May 2000, longtime owner Ralph Borger, sold the team to Winnipeg businessmen Blake Fitzpatrick, Pat Meagher, Gord Lee, Richard Enright, David Dobie, Marc Phaneuf, Don Howe, Al Fast, and George Sigurdson. The new owners rename the team, the Winnipeg Saints.

The Saints played out of the Dakota Community Centre for a decade years, before being forced out. For 2010-11 the team played out of St. Adolphe, switching to the MTS Iceplex in Winnipeg for the playoffs. The Saints moved back to the city for 2011-12, and played out of the St. James Civic Centre.

In April 2012, the team was sold to a group based out of Virden, Manitoba, becoming the Virden Oil Capitals.
