We are a community minded Junior
hockey team playing in the Metro Division of the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey
League (EOJHL) as a part of the Ottawa District Hockey Association (ODHA) and in

Our players are be the best amateur hockey players we can find from our
community and the region. Our players commit to our program of continuous
improvement both in hockey and community participation. In 2007/2008 we
participated in the Osgoode Rideau Amateur Hockey Day as well as the Manotick
Shiverfest. In 2008/2009 we participated in the Metcalfe Fair, Metcalfe RCMP
Musical Ride, Manotick Shiverfest and many minor hockey practices. In 2009/2010
we participated in the Manotick Shiverfest and helped raise over $5000 for
Osgoode home care ar our Alumni game. In 2009/2010 we worked with Metcalfe Minor Hockey teams to help promote the sport.
In 2011/2012 we played a game for charity against the Metcalf Minor Hockey
Coaches, we player a regular season game in Embrun to the benefit of Embrun
minor hockey and helped raise $3000 and we hosted the EOJHL All Starr games. This year were are planning to build on our community program again
and working with Russell Minor Hockey on a special event / fundraiser.
The Metcalfe Jets have a tradition
of excellence on the ice and have played for the EOJBHL Championship ten times since the League was founded in 1967. They have won the League Championship in 1968 (as
the Russell Jets ); in 1972 ( 4-1 in games against Gatineau Volants) ; in 1983 (against
Spencerville Bruins); repeated in 1984 (against Kemptville 73's); in 1987 ( against
Westport Rideaus); in 1995 ( 4-0 in games against Gananoque Islanders); and in 2004
(4-2 in games against Alexandria Glens). The Jets also played for the championship
but lost in 1973 (2-4 in games against Gatineau Volants); in 1997 (3-4 in games
against Kemptville 73's); and in 1998 (2-4 in games against Westport Rideaus).
The Jets have also had the privilege of having greats
like Larry Robinson, Mark Savard and Mark Frazer play with them in the past.
We maintain relationships with Junior
"A" hockey clubs, a lot of our players are currently playing Junior "A" and more
continue to aspire for that next level of competition. In 2007/2008 we had 7 players
affiliated with junior A teams and two goalies called up as emergeny goalies. At
the end of our 2007/2008 season 5 of our players were pretty much full time with
Jr A teams. In 2008/2009 we had 6 players affiliated with Junior A teams and graduated
3 players to Jr A. In 2009/2010 we had 7 players affiliated with Junior A
and graduated 3. In 2010/2011 we had 6 players affiliated with Junior A and
graduated at least 4. Take a look at our
