Another season of Keystone Junior Hockey League hockey – its 44th – is set to begin in October. All five teams return from last year when the season was cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic in mid-March.
2020-21 will mark 27 years of Peguis Juniors hockey competing in the KJHL, the longest tenure of any current team. That span includes three seasons as the Two Nation River Hawks, a co-op with Fisher River after a fire destroyed the original Peguis Arena in February 2007.
Peguis have captured both the league title and Baldy Northcott Trophy seven times (1996, 1998, 2013, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019). Juniors took home the silver medal at the 2018 Keystone Cup in Thunder Bay.
Last season was a rocky road for the Juniors who struggled with player numbers at most games. Peguis (18-13-1) finished with 37 points, three points back of second place OCN Storm. NCN Flames were atop the standings at the end of the regular season with 48 points.
