Winkler Flyers capture 2024 MJHL Turnbull Cup title, first since 1998


For the first time since 1998 the Winkler Flyers are champions of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League. 

Zach Nicolas scored his 6th of the playoffs on the powerplay with 4:59 gone in overtime to lead the Winkler Flyers to a 5-4 Game 4 win over the Steinbach Pistons to complete the four-game sweep of the MJHL Turnbull Cup Final on Saturday night.  

“It’s pretty surreal honestly to win it all, and I think it was a really close series, but in the end I think it was our desire that helped us pull it out in the end,” former Swan Valley Stampeders & Flyers forward Jakob Jones said. 

Jones acquired in a trade from Swan Valley in a December trade after scoring 46 goals, 58 assists in 96 career games as a Stampeders.

“I’m very appreciative of my time with Swan, I have a lot of great memories from the there and great people I met,” Jones added. 

Fellow Stampeder alumni Justin Falk is the Head Coach & GM, and Grandview product Jayce Leegaarden are also members of the Flyers who’ve advanced to the 2024 Centennial Cup National Junior A Hockey Championships from May 9th to May 19th in Oakville, Ontario.
