The Waterloo Siskins are a Canadian junior ice hockey team based in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. They play in the Mid-Western division of the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League.

History[edit]

Founded in 1937, the Siskins are one of the longest running Junior teams in hockey history. The team took a short hiatus in World War II. In the 1950s, the team was a part of what was then known as the "Big 10", and in 1956 was allocated in the Central "B". As part of the 1971 geographic realignment, the Siskins moved to the Western Junior B league. In 1973, the Siskins joined the Southwestern "B", which became the Waterloo-Wellington "B" in 1974, and the Midwestern "B" in 1977. The Siskins have always been a dominant team, and together with the Stratford Cullitons held the league hostage for much of its first 20 years. The Siskins still operate in the Midwestern "B", and are quite dominant.

Since 1977, the Siskins have won 7 league championships and 5 Sutherland Cups as Ontario Hockey Association Junior "B" Champions. They have only had four losing records and have been regular season champions 4 times. Prior to 1977, the Siskins had won 6 Sutherland Cups for a total of 11, an uncontested record—even by the Stratford Cullitons.
