Prince Albert Mintos – Sports Organization
The Mintos name has been part of Prince Albert for over a century and in the more recent years has become a Midget AAA midget hockey team that put the city on the map on a national scale.
In 2005-06 the Mintos finished second in the Saskatchewan AAA League standings, but won their first league championship. They followed that up by winning the Western Regional Championships, then the Telus Cup, emblematic of supremacy in Midget AAA Hockey in Canada.
The following year the Mintos made history by doing it again! They won Saskatchewan, Western Regionals and the Telus Cup becoming the first team ever to win the Midget AAA title in back to back years.
In 2014 the Mintos hosted and won the Western Canadian Championships in spectacular fashion. They advanced to the Telus Cup, hosted in Moose Jaw where they would advance to the final against Chateauguay Grenadiers of Quebec, winning in triple overtime. The Mintos went through the 2006, 2007 and 2014 Telus Cups without losing a game and were involved in the longest Telus Cup game in history.
