“We are extremely honoured to reintroduce the iconic hockey team, the Streetsville Derbys, into the PJHL” says Adrianne Fekete. “With deep roots in the community spanning generations, they are set to reignite the excitement of hockey in the village.”

The Derbys’ name has it’s history in Streetsville, starting in 1967 as part of the Suburban Jr. C league.

Stay tuned for a daily dose of thrilling events, innovative initiatives, and interactive updates from the hockey club on our social media platforms.”

With the introduction of the 63 franchise, PJHL Commissioner Terry Whiteside looks forward to increasing the level of competition across all divisions, and providing more opportunity for incoming players.

“The PJHL welcomes Streetsville into our league.” says Terry. “Their group has stressed that Streetsville is a small community at heart and that they are very much like the small towns throughout our league.  This addition brings the PJHL to our full complement of teams and we look forward to helping the new group in Streetsville become part of the PJHL.”

The Streetsville Derbys will make their home ice debut in September, and will match-up against Dundas, Dunnville, Glanbrook, Grimsby, Hagersville, Niagara and Port Dover as part of the Bloomfield division.
