The Manitoba Junior Hockey League announced on Wednesday that the Winnipeg Blues, Winnipeg’s only team in the MJHL, has been sold.

A group known as 50 Below Sports + Entertainment Inc., purchased the team from former owners Tom Kleysen and Dave Morris.

The MJHL Board of Governors have unanimously approved the transfer of ownership to the new group, whose chairman is Greg Fettes. Matt Cockell will assume the role of president and governor of the relocated team.

Under its new ownership, the Blues will practice and play its game sat the Rink Training Centre off of McGillivray Boulevard, beginning in September, 2019. The Rink Training Centre is expected to be a focal point for the continued development and training of hockey players in the MJHL and the province, including the WHL’s Winnipeg Ice, Winnipeg Blues and Rink Hockey Academy.
