The New Hamburg Firebirds are a Canadian Junior ice hockey team based in New Hamburg, Ontario, Canada. They are members of the Midwestern Junior C Hockey League of the Ontario Hockey Association.

History[edit]

The Hahns started out in the Interbrew Junior "C" Hockey League,[5] and later joined the Central Junior C Hockey League.[6] They made the jump up to the Midwestern Junior B Hockey League in 1977 and stayed there until 1982[7] when they returned to Junior "C" in the NJCHL.

While in the Central Jr. C league (now known as the Western Jr. C league), the Hahns won two Clarence Schmalz Cups as All-Ontario champions - 1963 and 1967.[8]

After some uncertainty in the Summer of 2013, the Firebirds ended up in the new Midwestern Junior C Hockey League.
