WINNIPEG, MB – Dakota Community Centre (DCC) is the new home of MJHL’s Winnipeg  Freeze. The partnership between Dakota Community Centre and the Winnipeg Freeze will see the team  practice, train and play all home games in the Jonathan Toews Sportsplex at DCC starting this fall.

The Winnipeg Freeze are a junior hockey team with a focus on training and developing some of  Manitoba’s future hockey stars. The Dakota Community Centre has been a St. Vital community staple for  over 30 years. Programming growth and site expansion have made Dakota Community Centre one of  largest and fastest growing sport and recreation complexes in Winnipeg.

“It’s no secret that our city and community love watching and playing hockey,” says Michele Augert, CEO Dakota Community Centre. “We have the ideal setup at our centre with superior ice and training  facilities and we are very excited to welcome the Winnipeg Freeze to Dakota CC this fall.”

“We’re extremely excited to bring the MJHL back to Dakota and engage with members of the  community.” Said Winnipeg Freeze Governor Jake Heisinger. “The new 60,000 sq. ft. world class field  house and training facilities at the Centre will allow us to continue to develop and focus on the players.”

“Dakota Community Centre has played a significant part in hockey development for many young  athletes throughout our nearly 35 years in our community,” says Christian Kennedy, DCC Board Chair.  “We are thrilled to have the Winnipeg Freeze and their players continue this important tradition and  know that our community is excited to have them join the Dakota CC family.”
