Mississauga Steelheads TicketsThe Mississauga Steelheads is one of the best-ranked junior hockey teams in the Eastern Conference leg of the Ontario Hockey League and has consistently remained so. Throughout its franchise history, the team has taken on a number of different names; it was known as the Toronto St. Michael’s Majors from 1997 to 2007, the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors from 2007 to 2012 and the Mississauga Steelheads from 2012 until the present day. Many former players have graduated from the team and gone on to have successful careers in the NHL, AHL and other pro hockey leagues, including Alexander Nylander, Michael McLeod, Stuart Percy and Owen Tippett. Additionally, the Steelheads have also taken many talented players from minor midget hockey teams like the Mississauga Reps and the Toronto Red Wings, which feature players under the age of 18. Some prominent players from these include Nathan Naves and Quinn McClelland. Get your Mississauga Steelheads tickets at StubHub.
