“Rebranding our Midget AAA club into the Warriors is the first major step in that direction. We are extremely lucky to have such a world-class organization like the Warriors in our city, and we as an association, want to create that same mentality where we are developing highly skilled players but even better young people who contribute positively to our community,” Boyle added.

“We also look forward to our new relationship in helping the AAA Warriors in their quest for a Telus Cup national championship. Moose Jaw has the young talent, the facilities, and the community to be one of the top AAA Midget programs in western Canada,” Millar added. “Our team believes the development of young people on and off the ice and the development of our coaches is essential throughout our minor hockey system. We look forward to building our relationship with Moose Jaw Minor Hockey as we enter into this important new partnership”
