The Winnipeg Warriors were a Canadian Junior A Hockey team in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League for three seasons. They were owned by Jack Perrin Jr. and affiliated with with the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League. In 64, the St. Boniface Canadiens were assigned the north area necessitating a name change. The north included part of north Winnipeg, East Kildonan, North Kildonan, Old Kildonan, West Kildonan, and Transcona. Perrin had been owner of the Winnipeg Warriors of the professional Western Hockey League. Team colors were black and orange. The Team continued to play in the Winnipeg Arena because of its artificial ice.
In the fall of 1967, Perrin would sell both his MJHL teams to Ben Hatskin. With the NHL mandating the end of professional teams sponsoring junior teams, the Manitoba Amateur Hockey Association did not want the newly created major junior to do so either. Before granting Hatskin’s Winnipeg Jets permission to play in the Western Canada Junior League, demanded he sell his 3 MJHL teams to community-minded sports groups. The new owners renamed the franchise the West Kildonan North Stars. This ended an era of junior hockey in Manitoba.
