Junior A Hockey is back in Milton!
Submitted By Tracy Gaetan on Saturday, March 30, 2019
March 29, 2019 Milton, Ontario – Milton Menace Hockey Club President and Halton based entrepreneur Jason Tryfon, proudly announced today that the newly acquired Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL) franchise will mark the return of Junior ‘A’ hockey to Milton, Ontario for commencement of their inaugural 2019-2020 season.

The franchise is being relocated from Newmarket, Ontario, where the club spent many years before being purchased by Tryfon and his partners in early March.

“When we first learned of the opportunity to purchase and relocate an OJHL franchise, there wasn’t a hesitation to place Milton’s name in the ring as one of our preferred destinations,” Tryfon said. “As a former resident of Milton, this town has long been a part of my life. My immediate family lives here. Both of my children were born here and learned to skate here. But the most intriguing aspect for us is Milton’s affinity and passion for the game of hockey. Nothing points to that more than the fact that the town’s own minor hockey organization, The Milton Winterhawks, have one of the largest minor hockey programs in Ontario.”

Milton Mayor Gord Krantz echoed Tryfon’s statement by saying: “Milton is a great hockey town with a long history of supporting Junior A Hockey. I am delighted to welcome the Milton Menace to the Thompson Memorial Arena for the upcoming 2019- 2020 season.”

With the announcement of the team relocating to Milton, OJHL Commissioner Marty Savoy also offered comment stating: “The OJHL is excited about the new ownership group relocating to Milton led by Jason Tryfon. Jason has assembled a strong group that, along with the OJHL, is looking forward to bringing Junior A hockey back to the town of Milton for the 2019-2020 season."

The first to join Milton’s management team is Paige Dixon as the Director of Hockey Operations and Communications.

“In the coming days, we’ll be announcing our management and coaching staff, but today I’m thrilled to announce Paige Dixon as our Director of Hockey Operations and Communications,” Tryfon stated. “Paige joins The Menace with an extensive background in professional hockey working for both the Florida Panthers and the New York Rangers, and we are proud to have her part of our team.”

The Milton Menace will begin play at the Milton Memorial Arena for the upcoming 2019-2020 season.
