History

During the summer of 1967, community-minded sports group purchased the Winnipeg Warriors from Ben Hatskin, renaming them the West Kildonan North Stars.

In 1967-68 Centre Wayne Chernecki led the MJHL in both points and goals, and was also voted Rookie of the Year, and earned First Team All-Star honors.

For the 1976-77 season the Team’s name was shorted to the Kildonan North Stars.

In 1978, the Kildonan North Stars captured the Turnbull Cup as Manitoba Junior "A" Hockey Champions.

During the 1986-87 season, the North Stars became infamous for a completely winless 48-game season. During the stretch from the beginning of the 1985-86 season to the end of the 1986-87 season, the North Stars had 6 wins, 90 losses, and no ties. Three years later the team was dissolved despite two consecutive winning seasons.
