The Saskatoon Sheiks were a professional ice hockey team in the Western Canada Hockey League and Prairie Hockey League from 1922 to 1928. The team was based in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, except for the end of the 1922 season, when they played in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.

The Sheiks entered the WCHL in 1922. By the end of the season, poor attendance forced the club to move to Moose Jaw as the Moose Jaw Sheiks on February 3. The next year, the team was back in Saskatoon. This change also saw the team change its name to the Saskatoon Crescents, but this change would only last one year. The team would last until 1928.

While in Moose Jaw, the team played their homes games at the Moose Jaw Arena and in Saskatoon at the Crescent Arena.
