Season highlightsEdit

  • The Winnipeg Saints relocate to the St. James Civic Centre in Winnipeg. This is the final season for the Saints, who permanently relocate to Virden after season's end.[1]
  • The Portage Terriers switch to the Addison division.
  • The Terriers defeat the Saints in the final to win their second consecutive Turnbull Cup. The Saints are the first (and only) team in MJHL history to win a playoff round as a crossover team.
  • The Neepawa Natives are involved in a hazing scandal after a 15-year-old player comes forward with allegations of sexual-based rookie hazing in the team's locker room. A $5,000 fine and 18 player suspensions are handed down by the league following an investigation. Neepawa's head coach/general manager and assistant coach are later handed indefinite suspensions. The Natives gain further negative press by refusing to release or trade the player brought the issue to light.[2]
