The Jamestown Jets were an American junior ice hockey team based in Jamestown, New York. Originally members of the United Junior Hockey League and later the Northern Junior Hockey League. The Jets played in the Canadian Greater Metro Junior A Hockey League in 2010-11.[1]


The team was announced in March 2008. The team's name comes from the Winnipeg Jets and was chosen by a fan.[2]

The franchise was founded by majority owner Barry Soskin and Dennis Canfield in March 2008 and the team logo and name was released on April 22, 2008 at a press conference at the JSBIA.

In August 2010, the Jets join a Canadian league Canadian Greater Metro Junior A Hockey League in Ontario.[1] On September 17, 2010, the Jets played their first GMHL game, at home, winning 4-3 over fellow expansion club Sturgeon Falls Lumberjacks. The game was the first international regulation game in the GMHL's history.

On April 30, 2011, the Jamestown Savings Bank Ice Arena moved to evict the Jets, claiming that the team's lease was with the previous owner and was no longer valid due to the team's sale. As of April 2013 the lawsuit Canfield filed against the Ironmen, Arena, and NAHL has progressed to New York State Supreme Court and is currently in the discovery phase sitting in the judges chambers. The Ironmen have since suspended operations.
