History

The Jr. Chiefs are the namesake of the former professional Mississauga Chiefs, who shared the same program. The Chiefs have moved to become the Toronto Aeros, but the minor hockey and junior teams have kept the name.

On January 31, 2010, the Jr. Chiefs host the China women's national ice hockey team in front of a sold-out crowd. The Chiefs won the game 4-1, despite the fact that China was ranked the seventh best senior national team in the world and on their way to the 2010 Winter Olympics.

The Jr. Chiefs finished 2010-11 in first place with 33 wins and only 3 losses. They would lose the Alumni Cup final to the Toronto Jr. Aeros, but avenged the loss by beating them to close out the season and win gold at the OWHA Intermediate AA provincials. At provincials, the Chiefs finished second in their pool with a 2-1 record behind the London Jr. Devilettes. Their record got them into a quarter-final qualifying game, in which they beat the Durham West Jr. Lightning 3-0. In the quarter-final, the Chiefs beat the Bluewater Jr. Hawks 3-2. In the semi-final, they were victorious again, edging the Whitby Jr. Wolves 1-0. In the finals, the Chiefs answered back for their Alumni Cup loss with a 7-2 shellacking of the Jr. Aeros.

On September 11, 2012, the Jr. Chiefs hosted the China women's national ice hockey team for an exhibition game. China won the game 2-1 in an overtime shootout.

The Jr. Chiefs finished the 2013-14 season 2 points out of first place, behind the Nepean Jr. Wildcats, with 32 wins, 5 losses, and a tie. Victoria Bach led the way with 36 goals and 32 assists to lead the Chiefs and the PWHL in scoring. In the qualifier round, the Jr. Chiefs swept the Burlington Jr. Barracudas 3-games-to-none to secure their spot in the Alumni Cup playoffs. The Chiefs finished first in Pool B with a perfect 3-0-0 record. In the quarter-final, the Chiefs beat the Bluewater Jr. Hawks 3-1. Then in the semi-final, the Chiefs edged the Toronto Jr. Aeros 2-1 in an overtime shootout. The finals did not go as planned, as the 2013 Champion Whitby Jr. Wolves stole the show with a 2-1 double overtime victory over the Chiefs. Afterwards, the Chiefs participated in the OWHA Intermediate AA championships. The Chiefs took first place in Pool B with a 2-1-0 record. In the quarter-final, the Chiefs beat the Waterloo KW Rangers 5-3. In the semi-final, the Chiefs defeated the Durham West Jr. Lightning 3-2 to earn a shot at the final. In the final, the Chiefs dispatched the Toronto Jr. Aeros 5-2 to win their third OWHA Championship as representatives from the PWHL.
