After years of being known as Gravenhurst’s South Muskoka Shield Tier II Junior ‘A’  Hockey Team, new ownership decided it was time for a change, rebranding and renaming the club as the Muskoka Shield.

According to Troy Kahler, President, GM & Head Coach of the team, the change was necessary in order to reflect the true spirit of the Muskoka region and Muskoka Hockey.

“The Shield are ‘Muskoka’s Hockey Team,’ and that must include Huntsville, Muskoka Lakes, Port Carling, Bala, Lake of Bays, Georgian Bay, Torrance, Rosseau, the District of Parry Sound, as well as Bracebridge and Gravenhurst,” said Kahler.

“It is inclusivity with a facelift,” Kahler continued, referring to the rename and rebrand of the logo, which the Shield will unveil in early fall at the Inaugural Hockey Day In Muskoka event planned for Sept 10th @ Graeme Murray Arena.
