The Selkirk Steelers are a Canadian Junior "A" ice hockey team from Selkirk, Manitoba, Canada. They are members of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League, a part of the Canadian Junior Hockey League and Hockey Canada.

History[edit]

Junior "A" hockey in Selkirk dates back to at least 1918, the founding of the MJHL. As one of the original members of the MJHL, the Selkirk Fishermen became the second ever Turnbull Cup, MJHL Champions by winning the 1920 playoffs. The Fishermen were crowned Western Junior "A" Champions and given the Abbott Cup. They moved on to the Memorial Cup for the National Championship, but were defeated by the Toronto Canoe Club Paddlers. The 1920 Selkirk Fishermen were inducted into the Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame in the team category.

In 1967, the Steelers joined the new Central Manitoba Junior Hockey League. The Steelers won the CMJHL title in its first year, but lost to the MJHL champion St. James Canadians in the Turnbull Cup finals. The CMJHL merged with the MJHL after only one year.

To date, the Steelers have won a total of ten MJHL Turnbull Cup Championships. Three of these championship teams went on to win the Anavet Cup. The 1973-74 season was the Steelers' most successful season. which saw them win the MJHL title and then defeat the Prince Albert Raiders 4-games-to-2 to win the Anavet Cup. They went on to compete for the Abbott Cup against the Kelowna Buckaroos of the British Columbia Junior Hockey League and defeated them 4-games-to-3. This advanced the Steelers to the National Championship against the Smiths Falls Bears of the Central Junior A Hockey League for the Manitoba Centennial Cup, the National Junior "A" Championship. The series went seven games, with the Steelers stealing Game 7 1-0 in overtime to clinch their first and, so far, only national title. [1] The 1974 Selkirk Steelers were inducted into the Manitoba Hockey Hall of Fame in the team category.

The Steelers last captured the MJHL championship in 2006-07. The Steelers defeated the Humboldt Broncos of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League four games to three for the Anavet Cup and advanced to the 2007 Royal Bank Cup, but were unable to advance past the round robin.
