The Port Arthur Marrs were a junior ice hockey team that played in Port Arthur, Ontario (now part of the city of Thunder Bay). They were named for trucking company and sponsor W.H. Marr, Ltd., and contested the 1967 Memorial Cup, which they lost to the Toronto Marlboros.

History[edit]

The Marrs played out of the Thunder Bay Junior Hockey League of Hockey Northwestern Ontario. They became the Thunder Bay Marrs in 1970 and then the Thunder Bay Case Eagles in 1971.

The North Stars folded on July 6, 1980 when the TBAHA left them with no league to play in.
