Exciting News

Mount Clemens Ice Arena is home to the Mount Clemens Hockey Club and multiple high school programs, and will now have a premier junior program, the Metro Jets, in-house to create opportunities from learn to play all the way to junior hockey. In addition, the MCHC will be re-branding to be known as the Jr. Jets.

With over 30 college commitments in the past three years alone and dozens of advancements, the Jets also saw in recent years several Jr. Jets players that have made the jump to play for the junior team, including Anthony Cinato, who was part of the 2018 national championship team and is now a freshman at NCAA Division III New England College. Other former Jr. Jets players include Brodie Thornton and Max Hartwell and several others who played for the youth teams, followed by the Jets junior program.

In addition, former NHLer and 2016 Stanley Cup champion Steve Oleksy, who played for the Jets from 2002-05, is involved heavily with the Mount Clemens Ice Arena. Planning has already started for the 2021-22 season.

Anyone families or coaches interested in learning more or joining the Jr. Jets can contact Jeff Blum at For more information, visit and follow the Jets on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube
