This season has been awesome both on and off the ice. Congratulations to all 9 teams for making the playoffs, and I’d like to highlight 3 teams who accomplished a Terrier first! Our Minor Atoms led by Vic Catalano, our Peewees led by James DeSanto and our Midget Juniors led by Steve MacNeil, ALL finished the regular season in first place and skated away with the Pro Hockey Life Cup. Our Midgets led by Mark Hrinco missed out by 1 point which would have given us an unprecedented 4 Pro Hockey Life Cups. Congratulations to the coaching staffs of these teams, and most importantly the players, who accomplished this amazing feat. Let’s keep that momentum going as we enter the second part of our season affectionately known as the playoffs. Good luck to all teams. All of you have already made us proud to wear our Terrier colours.

The Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup seeks to inspire young Canadians to do good by transforming the positive values learned through hockey into Good Deeds within their communities. Peewee teams from across the country reach out to their communities in the name of goodwill to help those in need. If you watch Hockey Night in Canada you have no doubt seen or heard about it.
The Mississauga Terriers Peewee AA team is one of 10 Finalists for the Chevrolet Good Deeds Cup! They taught 17 new immigrant/refugee children (age 7-13) how to skate and play the game of hockey over a 2 month period! The players collected equipment, sized the children, planned/taught the 6 lessons (1-3 were skating only, 4th was stick and puck and 5/6 were full equipment hockey games).
Meet our Midget All Stars – Nathan Galati, Andrew Hrinco, Jacob Caravaggio, Aidan Cross, Kudhrit Gill and Patrick Crowley. All players showed extremely well in representing the Terriers in the game. Congratulations to these players on the selection to represent the Terriers in the 2020 Midget AA all star game.

On any given Monday night at Erin Mills Arena there are two things you’ll see for certain: the Terriers taking to the ice and Terriers President Jack Brooks talking to parents and players, making sure everything is running smoothly.
Jack’s presence with the Terriers organization has been a constant for the past 25 years. Starting as a coach, Jack made a name for himself by winning three city championships followed by an OHF Championship with his son’s Midget “AA” team.
With his son graduated out of minor hockey, Jack was asked by the now former Terriers President Joe Schembri to stay involved with the organization. “The first time I met Jack was in a dressing room at Erin Mills Arena,” explained former Terriers General Manager Ken Wolff, who was introduced to Jack by Joe. “He was really determined to make it work despite having a full-time job.” Balancing his work life with the Terriers, Jack always made an effort to ensure the operation of the Terriers went off without a hitch. Following his retirement, Jack able dedicate a substantial amount of his time to the organization.
