Each season, the Turnbull Memorial Trophy is awarded to the champion of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League (MJHL).
Astoundingly as one of the oldest trophies in junior hockey, across the world, the Turnbull Memorial Trophy has been coveted for over 105 years. Donated in 1920 in honour of Capt. Walter James “Ollie” Turnbull, Canadian Army (Field Artillery 10th Bde.) veteran of World War I. Turnbull was killed in active duty in 1916 and was awarded the Military Cross for Bravery.
Son of James Holt and Sarah Turnbull, of Winnipeg, Manitoba; husband of Evangeline Bancroft Turnbull, of Vancouver, British Columbia.
