Mississauga Steelheads Update

Mississauga Steelheads Jersey with Hazel McCallion patch

It is hard to believe we are already into March and only have five home games left with playoffs on the horizon. 

The Mississauga Steelheads currently sit in 5th place in the East and only one point behind Peterborough for 4th which would mean home ice advantage in round one of the postseason. Playoffs are set to begin March 30th.

Off the ice, the team mourned the loss of their biggest fan, Hazel McCallion. The hockey club held a moment of silence prior to a game in honour of her memory and ongoing support of Mississauga’s team. Hazel always saw the importance of the Steelheads in Mississauga, an organization that would help unite the community and share their passion for the sport of hockey. She recognized the team’s influence on the growth and development in minor hockey, engaging Mississauga’s youth on and off the ice. As tribute the team has been wearing patches on their jerseys for the remainder of the season.

February HighlightsCommunity Appearances
With their school day game hosted on March 1st in front of 5000 excited students, the team visited more than 10 schools in and around the surrounding community. They also hosted a Steelheads Jamboree where five minor hockey teams had the opportunity to play on the Steelheads ice during the day and take in a Steelheads game that same evening. The team also hosted its first ever outdoor game where two minor hockey teams won the opportunity to play in a fun exhibition game against our players.
