The Mississauga Steelheads are a junior ice hockey team in the Ontario Hockey League, based in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. The team was originally known as the Toronto St. Michael's Majors, whose hockey program was founded and operated by St. Michael's College School in 1906. The current franchise was revived in 1996, and was relocated to Mississauga in 2007 after spending 10 years in Toronto. The team was known as the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors from 2007-2012, until owner Eugene Melnyk sold the team, to Elliott Kerr, a local businessman.
St. Michael's revived its hockey program for the 1997–98 season in the Ontario Hockey League. The recent version of the Majors played for 10 seasons, until being relocated as the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors.
Originally owned by St. Michael's College School, the team was owned by Eugene Melnyk, who is the current owner of the Ottawa Senators and former CEO of Biovail Corporation. Melnyk pursued several deals to get a new arena for his team, but none came to fruition. One of Melnyk's foiled plans included purchasing Maple Leaf Gardens.
On July 12, 2006, Eugene Melnyk bought the Mississauga IceDogs. After the 2006–07 season, Melnyk sold the IceDogs to Bill Burke, and moved the Majors to the Hershey Centre in Mississauga.   The IceDogs, in turn, moved to Jack Gatecliff Arena in St. Catharines, Ontario and are now known as the Niagara IceDogs.
Although the team struggled at the box office early, they have steadily increased their attendance in three seasons at the Hershey Centre. The Majors hosted the 2011 Memorial Cup.
On May 14, 2012 the Majors were officially sold to Mississauga businessman Elliott Kerr. Consequently, the franchise was renamed the Mississauga Steelheads along with a new look and logo, while the old name and its associated logos will be returning to the St. Michael's College School.

The Mississauga franchise has retired four numbers. All of these players were associated with the 1906-1962 Toronto St. Michael Majors.
