The Dryden Ice Dogs are a Junior "A" ice hockey team from Dryden, Ontario, Canada. They are a part of the Superior International Junior Hockey League.

History[edit]

At 49° 47′ North, as of 2008 the Ice Dogs were the most northern Junior "A" team in Ontario, further North than the Abitibi Eskimos of the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League. At the 2008-09 season, the Sioux Lookout Flyers joined the league and at 50° 06′ took over as Ontario's most northerly Junior hockey club.

The Ice Dogs are one of the SIJHL's charter teams, and have established a tradition as being one of the top teams in the league, having won the first ever league championship and posted finishes of at least third in the league in season play in all but one of their seasons to date.

The Ice Dogs play at the Dryden Memorial Arena, and have games broadcast on CKDR, Dryden's local radio station.
