SJHL announces new Viterra Division

Press Release

The Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League (SJHL) is proud to welcome Viterra to their corporate partnership team. As part of their agreement, the SJHL has created the Viterra Division, which consists of the Estevan Bruins, Melville Millionaires, Yorkton Terriers and the Weyburn Red Wings.

“This is an important partnership for the SJHL,” said Bill Chow president of the SJHL. “For close to 100 years, Viterra has been a leader in Saskatchewan and has a long and positive relationship with our rural communities just like the SJHL.”

Kyle Jeworski, Viterra’s President and CEO for North America said, “We take great pride in our active and ongoing support of various initiatives across Saskatchewan and Western Canada.  Our company’s success is based on the hard work of our employees and strong relationships with our grower customers, and giving back to their communities is a priority for Viterra.  Our partnership with the SJHL is a great example of this commitment.”

The SJHL regular season begins Thursday September 19 with two Viterra division rivals, as the Estevan Bruins host the Melville Millionaires.
