Thunder Bay Northstars for the 2014/2015 Season

Thunder Bay Northstars for the 2014/2015 Season

The Thunder Bay North Stars Junior A hockey team has roots in local Junior A hockey dating back to the early 1920’s with such teams as the Fort William War Veterans (Memorial Cup champs in 1922) and the Port Arthur North Stars.
After the fall of the mighty Thunder Bay Flyers (who played in the USHL) in 2000, there was a rebirth of Junior A hockey in Thunder Bay and surrounding area with the establishment of the Superior International Junior Hockey League in 2001. The SIJHL originally had 5 teams, including the Thunder Bay Wolves, which in their second year were purchased by the Fort William First Nation and a group of 7 businessmen from the Band, thus becoming the Fort William North Stars. Gerald Bannon eventually became the sole owner and operator of the team from 2003 – 2010.

In October 2010 the Fort William North Stars folded. Their assets, roster, personnel and name were transferred to a new ownership group comprised of local Thunder Bay business people. The team’s name was changed to the Thunder Bay North Stars to reflect that they are the only Thunder Bay team remaining in the now 7 team SIJHL. The North Stars are truly now “Thunder Bay’s team”.

Late summer of 2012, the Thunder Bay North Stars saw new ownership again, with Doug Gunsinger at the helm.

The North Stars are the only team in SIJHL history to have won the Dudley Hewitt Cup and play in the Royal Bank Cup. That was accomplished by the 2005-2006 team which hosted the Dudley that season. They won silver at the RBC that year.
